What is Polloman?
It’s a Mexican folklore adventure comic series about a timid boy who learns to overcome his childhood fears and vanquish 6 terrifying legends including La Llorona, El Cucuy, and El Chupacabras.
SUMMARY: After encountering El Raton De Dientes (The Mexican tooth fairy), cowardly Emanuel gets thrust into the underworld of Mictlan where La Llorona, El Cucuy, and other folktales exist. Saved by La Cukaracha, a fire mage, he discovers his human heart is the key in vanquishing the 6 terrifying Legends and saving the world of the living and the dead. Becoming Polloman the chicken warrior, he must now travel the land collecting magic granting marbles and conquering his childhood fears if he ever hopes to see his father 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.
