Poncho  –  Editorial Director

Poncho is from everywhere, and nowhere.  He has no past, no remarkable characteristics.  He is a shadow, ever waiting, ever watching, always just out of sight.  Witnesses have reported glimpsing the brim of a hat, or the curl of a mustache, but all agree that the presence of this unknown hero can be known by the sound of a woolen poncho, majestically flapping in his wake.
