Maximilian & the Bingo Rematch (Max's Lucha Libre Adventures #2) / Maximilian & la revancha de la lotería
Written and illustrated by Xavier Garza
Suddenly everybody in Max's life seems to be fighting: a couple of cranky tías who, like lucha libre rudos, will stop at nothing to triumph in the church's lotería game; his masked uncles going for the tag-team title of the world; and a green-eyed vixen named Paloma who challenges his love for Cecilia. Will good triumph over evil? Max sure hopes so!
De repente, parece que todos alrededor de Max se están peleando: un par de tías malhumoradas que, como los rudos de la lucha libre, no se detendrán ante nada para triunfar en el juego de la lotería de la iglesia; sus tíos enmascarados que van por el título mundial en parejas; y una muchacha bonita de ojos verdes llamada Paloma que desafía su amor por Cecilia. ¿Triunfará el bien sobre el mal? ¡Max sí que lo espera!
