Today I'm looking back at a very popular (and collectable) form of pulp art - Micro Leyendas covers!
Micro Leyendas (mini legends) are a Mexican form of fumetto, small graphic novels normally pitting the everyday hero against the weird, the occult and the unfathomable.
The art of Micro Leyendas is bold, macabre and funny. The books often tell a cautionary tale of revenge or humiliation, much like a modern folk tale.
Most Micro Leyendas were published between 1960 and 1975, before losing ground to more conventional comic books and fotonovelas. There have been more recent reprints however.
The pen and ink artwork in Micro Leyendas is simple but effective, normally only one or two panels per page. Here's an excellent 1969 example from Rafael Ramirez.
