I’m lucky enough to receive random comics in the post, most of them full of whacked out weirdness and grisly goings on. Arriving on the ‘doorstep of doom’ this week is quite possibly one of the weirdiest (yeah, i made that word up) and wackiest comics I have ever had the pleasure to read. El Bigote: A Tequila-Drenched Reckoning is the first offering from Tekilla Comix, the brain child of writer Matthew McLaughlin and artist El Chivo. It’s only a thin preview issue of what’s to come in the future but is so packed full of wild ideas, it’s impossible to not be impressed.
Set in the untamed borders of the Mexican afterlife, our quill-flinging mustached hero, El Bigote (The Mustache), rides his trusty ostrich steed across the prairies dishing out retribution to undead banditos. I may have never typed a sentance more insane than that.
McLaughlin’s script dances illusively between English and Spanish, which only leads to highten the bonkerousness of the whole affair. Artist El Chivo is fully in on the madness and fleshes out this bizarre comic with his own neat touches.
With more issues on the way, possibly in the form of a web comic, I look forward to seeing what these two poco loco amigos can do.
