We here at Sinaloa Cartel Publishing are very proud to announce the launch of our new monthly magazine, El Chapo, dedicated entirely to the life, loves, and philosophy of the world’s most notorious criminal. If Oprah rates her own glossy magazine then certainly we can offer the same privilege to Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, AKA “Shorty.” For those who care to know more than what’s printed on the wanted posters we offer rare insights into the world of the man who has made us all ask the question, “Pablo Esco-who-bar?” El Chapo helps readers sift through the legends, myths, rumors, exotic animal zoos, torture-induced confessions, shattered glass, empty shell casings, beheading videos, mass graves, and thousands of severely traumatized innocent bystanders to know the real story.
Here are a few selections from our inaugural edition.
