About

Graphic Novel:It Takes a Village, Part 3

The Haitian and his father take a "dark walk" or Petro to a mountain with skulls and images of death etched into its face. Guillame says this is a place where people come to make amends with what they've done wrong. Guillame thinks his son is the sin and, in a trance-like rage, lunges at the Haitian.

Graphic Novel:It Takes a Village, Part 4

Guillame and his son struggle--Guillame lunges at the boy with an axe and throws him down the cliff. When Guillame gets control of himself, he shares a brief tender moment with his son, then throws himself off the side of the cliff to his death.

Graphic Novel:The Crossroads

In March 2007, many years after fighting his father, the Haitian returns to the crossroads. He performs a ritual and experiences visions in the forms of his victims, a serpent/crane, and his father.

Memorable Quotes

"That day, at the top of the world, where the realm of spirits and world of man met in blood and shadow."

- The Haitian (It Takes a Village, Part 4)

Notes

  • In Vodou traditions, "the crossroads" is where the earth and spirit worlds meet. Indeed, the Haitian says, "Here...the veil between light and shade is at its thinnest...simple as dying." (The Crossroads)

Trivia

  • The crossroads is the first graphic novel place to be revisited in a different graphic novel than the series in which it was originally introduced.
