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 eventing he aims at? Only his therapist-shaman knows… but is HE real or imaginary?

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


Eric Erdek -Creator – Writer- Artist

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, living In California 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.
