MPC Week: "Sonambulo"
Tell Him Your Dreams!
For our second appointment with Modern Pulp Comics, I want to introduce you all to Sonambulo, the private eye with a luchador mask (how cool is that?) created by Rafael Navarro. This was a lucky find at SDCC 06, when Rafael's wife left a copy of the book on my table.
Believed dead (mobsters attempted to kill him) and buried for over 2 decades, former luchador Sonanmbulo wakes up from a deep sleep and comes back with the incredible powers to see other people dreams and to go for days without sleeping. He decides to use his new powers to do some good, hence his decision to become a P.I. and fight the bad guys, both the material gangsters and the supernatural evils.
Drawn in a beautiful Black&White, Sonambulo has all the noir, pulp elements we have learned to love from those old school P.I. investigation cases.
