Below are illustrations and concept art for my upcoming Mexican Fantasy comic, The Legend of Polloman, about a Chicken warrior and magic Roach travelling the land of Mezzico to defeat Mexican folktale creatures such as La Llorona, El Cucuy, and El Chupacabra. This comic book is part of an effort to expose a greater audience to aspects of Mexican history, folklore, and culture.
These stories were told to my generation of kids to scare them away from misbehaving or staying out late and there wasn’t a single Hispanic person who didn’t know about them. I want to be able to retell these stories through my own vision in hopes of not only entertaining, but educating the next generation on the beautiful culture Mexico has to offer.
The first chapter of the comic is set to release in fall 2017. Keep up with it’s development here and on my social media channels @Gonzzink.
