Created by Carlos Trillo & Eduardo Risso
Chicanos follows Jalisco, an unattractive, short Mexican woman who follows her dream of becoming a private eye in the U.S., all while trying to stay one step ahead of the bad luck which inevitably follows her.
The smash European series Chicanos continues on these shores with this second volume of an ongoing series recounting the misadventures of A.Y. Jalisco, Private Detective. Penned by Carlos Trillo and featuring art by fan favorite Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets), Chicanos follows Jalisco, an unattractive, short Mexican woman who follows her dream of becoming a private eye in the U.S. while trying to stay one step ahead of the bad luck which inevitably follows her.
The short, pudgy, unattractive chicana works a dangerous, dingy beat in New York City. A conspicuous lack of glamour works to Jaliscoís advantage as she slips by her marks unnoticed. Striving to live out the American dream, Jalisco contends with the lowest of the low in this Chaykin-esque crime noir. Despite the pluralization of the seriesí title, Chicanos focuses primarily on Jalisco.
First published in Italy and France (1993)]
Anyway, A.Y. Jalisco is a Private Investigator in New York with the WORST luck in the world.
Hopes and dreams of love and wealth that disappear very fast. You donít know if you should cry or laugh at the situations.
