returns to that funky little Central American hamlet of his with another story
set in the "Sopa de Gran Pena" days starring "The Children of
Palomar" — in this case the obnoxious and picked-on Gato (whom LR
fans will remember as Pipo's husband-to-be), Soledad, Guero, Pintor, and Arturo. The
quintet of troublemakers' explorations across a bottomless chasm results in two
of the kids coming face to face with... well, we won't spoil the surprise.
But Sheriff Chelo is
on the case and saves the day! With the very earliest Palomar stories recently
released in a redesigned and affordable format in the Heartbreak Soup
volume, interest in these new stories of Palomar should remain high, and the
super-swanky Ignatz format provides Beto with a perfect canvas.
