Gilbert Hernandez's first original graphic novel from Fantagraphics follows on the heels of his acclaimed Sloth from DC's Vertigo Comics in 2006. Chance In Hell tells the story about a little orphan girl who lives in the slum of slums. Nobody knows who she is or where she's from, but her fellow shantytown inhabitants collectively look over her. The three-act story follows our heroine as she is adopted by a decent man who raises her well, and she eventually marries a kind, well-to-do man, only to discover that she can't relate to the good life and the comforts it provides.

Hernandez wowed critics in 2003 with his epic life's work, Palomar, collecting more than 15 years of groundbreaking comics that Booklist called "the most substantive single work that the comics medium has yet produced." Chance In Hell further establishes Hernandez as one of the great cartoonists of our age.
