Summary note:
"In 1996, the world may not have been ready for the Mexi-Lucha-Heroes, but They were! '96 was a good year for the underground swelling of lucha libre fandom in the U.S., seeing the debut of both Rafael Navarro's Xeric Award-winning masked wrestler private dick comic Sonambulo, and Keith Rainville's genre-bending From Parts Unknown magazine. Finding common creative ground in spite of their bi-coastal publishing ventures, the two started working together immediately, and have since combined for a series of acclaimed and successful Mexi-mask projects. Now with the world catching up, the Muchas and VaVooms and Nachos, the two creators look back on a decade of collaboration in this 112-page collection of original illustrations, paintings, and never-before-seen sketches of the masked men (and women) they so love."
