Los Poncheros – a Western graphic novel

Logline: The racially diverse members of a poncho-wearing gang find themselves on opposing sides of a developing conflict in a turbulent Western territory. The former friends must choose between their old ideals of cooperation and diversity and the territory’s current ideals of individualism, greed, and segregation.

Summary: In Episode 1, we find members of Los Poncheros outlawed and aimless.  Outlawed because of their failed attempt to form a breakaway republic called The Bat Colony amidst the chaos of the Civil War.  Aimless because they can no longer carry weapons, wear their beloved ponchos, or assemble in groups greater than two. However, there is never a dearth of greedy opportunists in the Wild West who want to use the infamous Poncheros’ skills as gunmen, riders, and fixers for their own ends.  And so in their desperate state, former Poncheros are easily forced or seduced into going against everything they once stood for.
