The Legend of Polloman is an upcoming Mexican Folklore action adventure comic series about a boy who must overcome his fears and vanquish terrifying Mexican folklore creatures.
SUMMARY: After encountering El Raton, the Mexican tooth fairy, cowardly Emanuel gets thrust into the mystical land of Mezzico where folktales and gods exist. Discovering his heart is the key in saving the citizens of this world and his own, Emanuel hesitantly dons the persona Polloman in order to defeat the six terrifying Legends. With help of cockroach mage Cuka and powerful magic marbles spread across the land, Polloman must face his fears and fight if he ever has hopes of seeing his pueblo again.
MISSION: This All Age comic is a part of an effort to expose a greater audience to the Folklore, Culture, and History of Mexico through a coming of age story for young Latinos to relate to. The comic is in process of being adapted into games, toys, and other merchandise in order to reach out in all forms of media.
