Evaristo V. - Shanty Town, page 3

Comic Strip


Evaristo by Solano Lopez and Carlos Sampayo, now a these days mostly unknown and forgotten. The team Lopez/Sampayo did create great social crime storys. ALACK SINNER (Munoz/Sampayo) would not be the same without EVARISTO.

Solano Lopez drawing style is not unique, but his building of characters is unique.
