Beautiful griselda 
(la hermosa griselda)

2011

Griselda is so beautiful that her suitors literally lose their heads! Not only does she cause anyone who looks at her to lose his head — she collects the lost heads, oblivious to the fact that everyone is terrified of her. When she runs out of willing companions, she finds a prince so myopic that for a short while he is able to be with her (before the inevitable happens). But they are together long enough that she has an extremely beautiful baby and for the first time ever Griselda learns what it's like to lose your head for someone you love. A funny and beautifully illustrated take on the pitfalls of narcissism.
