Why haven't I heard of <i>H2Octopus</i> before this?

The focus of this Comic Book Resources article may be the upcoming one-shot Batman in Barcelona: Dragon's Knight, but my attention was immediately drawn to the mention of artist Diego Olmos' H2Octopus, and the accompanying eight-page excerpt.

First: H2Octopus? Awesome name. Second: The artwork!

I admit my knowledge of Spanish, and Spanish comics, is sorely limited. But really I should've been alerted to the title before this.

According to the Amazon.com description, H2Octopus is the greatest detective in the world of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. In the volume titled The Cat's Head, "H2Octopus finds himself employed in the search for the Cheshire Cat, an animal of great power that evil forces are seeking to control. But when the cat's head mysteriously disappears, the clues will lead him into the real world of 19th century Europe."

It's as if it were written just for me. Except, y'know, in Spanish.

I think I know what I'm buying myself for my birthday.
