Cover for Volume 5: "Lost Son"



In the Analco neighborhood is the mural in memorian of 1992 explosions' victims. With the Virign of Guadalupe, is the perfect image for "Lost Son"
Vértigo Político





I didn't like  Fausto's pose in the first drawing. I changed it to him standing, looking at the neighborhood.

Guadalupe and Fausto

Versión en español
I went to a catholic school, with nuns and religion as subject.
I even participated in "Our Lady of Guadalupe" knolwledge contest answering trivia questions about the apperances.
Me in 3rd grade

I'm an atheist now, but I probably know more about La Virgen than most people who use her image for everything.

 

With that cultural background in mexican's culture and a little bit of homage to Belascoran Shayne (another mexican P.I.) in "Lost Son" Fausto has a case involving La Guadalupana

1992 Guadalajara Explosions

On April 22nd 1992, there were explosions on the sewers of Guadalajara, killing 240 people and many more injured. 
I only remember a “BOOM” looking at the sky waiting for something to happen. I was too little to know what was going on.
It wasn’t until years later in school when I learned more. About the gasoline in the underground drainage, the irregularities, the bad politics and how many got injured or died. 
CNN México

I also watched the National Geographic show “Seconds from Disaster” (the episode is in youtube here), watched other news report and read articles.
The event comes up every year on the anniversary, but it’s still a strange distant thing to me.
I’m sure that for all the victims it a vivid memory, the witness know it was a tragedy that could have been prevented it, and the people who were born years later probably don’t take it seriously. 
“Lost son” deals with this part of Guadalajara’s history, is in the past of the characters. Because I want Detective Fausto to tell the story of this city that it’s not used as much in mexican fiction.

Webcomic recommendations: Agua Caliente

Picture yourself waking up in a strange place, in a wet atmosphere and with an almost unsupportable heat. You're naked, and one by one, people around you are getting killed.
That’s the story of “Agua Caliente” (Warm water)
A story that reminds me the Twilight Zone, with a moral at the end.
The drawings are all pencils, but very well done.
The site is hard to navigate, and it has other unfinished webcomics, but it has a widget that allows you to read the full story.
