Got some postcards, a comicbook, a couple GBA videogames and an inflatable bootleg Batman (he wears red lipstick everynight before fighting crime) at the local Comic Con.

#AlsoReading: Copra by independent cartoonist Michel Fiffe, my pal Karakenio got me Compendium #2 (that comprises numbers 4,5,6) off his trip to New York. Although the characters are basically a rip-off of DC’s Suicide Squad of the late 80’s early 90’s, they’re not a carbon copy, the stories are fresh and the artwork, specially the coloring is very cool with an amateurish/zineish touch. This comic is been a hit since it’s release and recently got reviewed at Comics Alliance, also most of the early issues are OOP. The author is on tumblr and you can check his website as well where I found this great post about his obsession with the Suicide Squad.

Valentina by Guido Crepax, 1966
#NowReading: the first volume of Valentina by italian illustrator/cartoonist Guido Crepax, this series is considered a classic and a huge influence on modern erotic comics, from the bondage and S&M imagery and references to the carefully designed pages and panel structure, often integral to the narrative.

More from the Huracán Ramirez comic from my previous post…
"vaya rezando lo que sepa"
"Huracán Ramírez El Invencible" #55, 1969
Picked up this obscure mexican luchador photocomic today at the flea market, Huracán is spanish for hurricane and is the name of the hero, who’s basically an “El Santo" rip-off, the guy’s also an interpol agent and hangs out with this chubby mustachioed side-kick (the one at the bottom right). He’s cruisin’ around the globe with Sherlock Holmes’ pipe and James Bond’s watch and unlike Santo he doesn’t really does much wrestling, he’s more like a submachine gun kind of guy… in this episode he’s fighting the band of "The Perverted Asians" that turn out to be narco-communists.
So yeah literature…
