Hi. This is Bruce Logan, Award-winning Director, and Cinematographer who’s work includes 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and Tron, and Richard Soto, Actor/Teacher/Storyteller, who inspires kids through Arts and Education. We are the creators of The Legend of El Lobo!


The Legend of El Lobo! The Story:

Drawing El Lobo!

A young Latino comic book artist draws a ferocious shape-shifting Aztec“superhero” for the kids of the barrio.  The superhero metes out bloody justice on the neighborhood street gangs. The young artist is shocked to discover that his superhero has become a reality, and that the comic book mirrors events in the real world.  He finally realizes that, when called upon by the collective emotions of the barrio, he “becomes” the mythic beast he has created. Although his motive to save the barrio kids from becoming gang members is good, he is horrified by the violence he is capable of.  He realizes that the savage nature of the beast is a manifestation of the rage in his own heart. Can he control his rage, defeat the gangs, and save the kids of the barrio?

The Legend of El Lobo! The Comic Book:
