Autobiographical tales from the San Gabriel Valley east of downtown Los Angeles...

AKA, the Güero Chingón Stories, Vol. 2

Set in a time when kids weren't allowed indoors until the sun went down... various shenanigans and random hijinks in Rosemead, Alhambra, San Gabriel and El Monte... turf wars on Columbia Street, free food from McDonald's courtesy of the Eastern Bloc, smoking pot at Mark Keppel High, riding bikes in The Wash, destroying government property, playing Rambo at Marrano Beach, trashing Emerson Elementary, locked up at the Temple City Police Department, hunting the Night Stalker, having Parents Without Partners and more...

56 illustrated, typewritten pages, half-size and saddle-stitched with a color cover

Available as trade or through etsy.
