Synopsis 

Fire ceremonies, punk initiations, phantasmagorical visions and tragic heroes come together in the graphic novel BURN MAN by Shawn Kuruneru.

A man attempts a burn ritual in New York City and begins a terrifying journey that reflects his own turmoil. He encounters drugged out possessed cannibal punks, mass clusters of subway rats, the Grim Reaper and an old lady licking a toad.
