Appearing at the inaugural LATINO COMICS EXPO is Rafael Navarro, creator of the international cult comic book SONAMBULO. The book features a blend of film noir crime fiction with a surreal, supernatural atmosphere, drawing much inspiration from classic American comics books and the masked wrestlers from Mexico.
Rafael began his Xerix Award-winning in 1996, and since then has been chronicling the adventures of his signature character, traveling across the country to innumerable comic shows and festivals. Over the years Rafael has also worked for numerous publishers, among his most recent assignments have been an issue of "GUMBY'S GANG starring POKEY" (written by fellow Expo attendee Michael Aushenker) and a story for the new anthology
BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE.
In addition to his many comic book credits, Rafael is also an Emmy Award-winning storyboard artist. Along with bringing his entire Sonambulo catalog to the Expo, Rafael will also be accepting commissions for sketches from attendees.
