Barrio Quien Sabe is full of some of the most colorful, oddball characters in the world, but what about one from out of it? The Homies go back in time as they remember the arrival of Alien Ese, the illegal alien from outer space! Starting with his travels across the galaxy, to crash landing in Roswell, New Mexico, to escaping Area 51 and finally hitchhiking his way to L.A., the story of Alien Ese tells us that no matter where you’re from, if you’re an immigrant looking for a better life, you’re always welcome in the barrio!

SINK is a series of offbeat, stand alone crime stories, all linked by one shared location: Sinkhill.
A forgotten East End district of a warped funhouse mirror vision of Glasgow, Scotland, Sinkhill is a hive of crooks, deviants and killers, and ordinary folk unfortunate enough to live among them.
