Summary
"Based on historical events, this gripping graphic novel chronicles the fierce physical, legal, and political battles sparked by the discovery of an ancient underwater treasure. May 2007. When an American treasure-hunting company uncovers a shipwreck containing the greatest underwater trove ever found, the world is captivated by their discovery. But over in Spain, a group of low-level government officials surmises that the sunken ship is in fact an ancient Spanish vessel. Thus begins a legal and political thriller, pitting a group of idealistic diplomats against a rich and powerfully connected treasure hunter, in which vital cultural artifacts and hundreds of millions of dollars hang in the balance. Weaving threads of Tintin-inspired seafaring adventure, political intrigue, tense courtroom drama, and a bit of tender romance for good measure, internationally acclaimed cartoonist Paco Roca and writer Guillermo Corral have crafted a truly cinematic graphic novel"--Back cover.
