SANCHEZ! - The Mexican P.I.

There’s a pain inside him and it’s a killer. A dark, fanged tornado that left a vacuum in the place his heart should be. A place he tries to fill with Blues, Sex, Espresso… and a Cafe Racer drive to rescue lost things. Is it super powers, magic or just luck that makes him almost unbeatable in a fight and hit everything he aims at? Only his therapist knows… but is HE real or imaginary?

Detective Django (Jan ) Reinhardt

LAPD’s hardest working cop. Homicide, & Human Trafficking Strike Force. She seems to be the only woman immune to Sanchez’s charms, in fact she thinks he would look a lot better behind bars. Bulging muscles undercover in a skimpy dress or in full tactical gear, Det. Reinhardt is always heavily armed… even when she’s not carrying a gun.

Isabel Bustamante

(THE CLIENT) Sure, she has a body hot enough to melt a chocolate bar from across the room… and every other Pulp Babe cliche. But what is she really after? Does she need The Mexican P.I. to rescue her? Or does he need her to rescue him?

Perla Reyes

The little Mexican girl that just wanted to get home from school. A ride in a ’49 Mercury may become a horror story… Mexico is a tough place to get in the wrong car. When two nice kids say Perla’s mom sent them to pick her up, who can blame her for getting in?

Victor Hamlin

The Pied Piper of little girl snatching. Just a nice, polite, old man that runs the supply part of sexual slavery. He thinks of them as cattle. He likes to quote Lewis Carroll. Why? Who knows why soulless monsters do what they do.

CLEMENTE

As far as psycho henchmen go, this one’s a peach. Happy go-lucky, just as likely to shoot you in the face as to dance and sing you a show tune. Or do both at the same time. Hamlin’s right hand-man and all around human trafficker.

Espresso Detective Comic

If you have a taste for noir crime fiction, here’s what’s on the menu:

-A full serving of two-fisted, anti-hero, rescue-complex action!

-Sides of white-knuckle, roller coaster rush of real world horror, muscle-bound heroics, self-deprecating humor, hot cars, cool café racer bikes, beautiful women and Blues music!

-For dessert, metaphysical super powers, separate realities, heartbreak, and good old fashioned fun.

-Pack all that down with an espresso shot of stereotype busting, and a slice of pie.

“Literature has a new Great Latin Lover… and he’s a Dick.”

Eric Erdek - Comic Book Creator - Director

This is My Story

I’ve been directing thousands of actors over the past 20 odd years. I work in casting as session director and less so as casting director. The comic book part goes back to my first memories. I’m a dyed in the wool comic nerd. My comic book creating is much more recent. I’ve been a pro for the past 10 years. To my credit is a cover to Heavy Metal Magazine (back cover, but still…) I’ve attended ComicCon as a pro for many years, but my main deal is the espresso detective comic. I don’t look it, but I am half Latino, speak Spanish (native) the other half is New Yorker. (Yes, that is an ethinc group… So sez I.) I have a deep love affair with espresso coffee and my motor revs at the site of cafe racer bikes and blues music. I now reside in Los Angeles with my stunning, genius wife and stunning, genius cat.
