Blood Brothers #1

The first issue of Dynamite Entertainment's Blood Brothers: Hermanos de Sangre is unexpected. Issue #1 of the four-issue mini-series introduces us to Diego and Gabriel Soliz, a pair of mismatched brothers who nevertheless make effective detectives. Writer Fabian Rangel, Jr. and artist Javier Martin Caba create a fantastical world filled with creatures of all shapes and sizes. While our protagonists are both human, each brings an unique skill-set to their partnership.

Diego, from what we see here, is a degenerate drunk. However, he does have the power to speak to the dead and follow the invisible tracks people leave behind. The much larger Gabriel is clad in full wrestling attire including luchador mask, far more intent on playing the hero (although he seems to lack the more deductive mind of his brother).

When an Aztec skull is stolen from the local museum the police detectives are on the case which includes a little extra motivation as the mysterious skull has ties back to the pair's father. I'm curious to see where things go next. Worth a look.
