What I draw from this comic is that a trio of foreign semi-military investigators are on a case about homicide occuring inside geodes - although the details are confounded by the poetic language and the bursts of gymnastic fight scenes. Perhaps plot is beside the point here though- Olivo's working a visual scene similar to Andy Burkholder's ITDN comics - penchants for fluidity of meaning in a simplified form and the obfuscated idea of narrative. -EF
