Polloman is a soon-to-be published graphic novel series inspired by Mexican Folklore, mythology and culture, aswell as the Asian inspired worlds such as Avatar the Last Airbender and Studio Ghibli I grew up with.


Stumbling into an Aztec underworld fueled by sacrifice, a timid boy named Emmanuel struggles to fulfill someone else's destiny, discover dormant gods, and vanquish six terrifying Latin American Legends to bring peace to the living and the dead.

"Gonzalo's imaginative world-building, drawing from ancient Mexica art as well as from the world of gaming, makes for an exciting new voice in the world of Latino comics.
