Tonel’s work fuses comic-book imagery with subtle political and social references. In this work, he tells a fantastic story that jumps from a 17th-century alchemical text to the year 2058. Lenin, Gramsci, and Mayakovski all make appearances, as does the Cuban son band N.G. La Banda. Tonel uses specific Cuban idioms and expressions throughout the text, as though telling the history of the Russian revolution through Cuban popular culture. The narrative also weaves in and out of writing, collage, stamps, banknotes, and other appropriated elements.
