Ok, so to people that didn’t grow up in South America. Condorito is a series of monthly comics by Chilean Comic book artist and South American legend Pepo.
Tons of kids grew up with Calvin and Hobbes and Garfield. Down there, we grew up with Gaturro, Mafalda and Condorito.
These comic series where actually not exactly meant for kids. The issues they would joke about usually involved politics, sex, self analisys, depression and other more adult themes, but the thing was people actually let their kids experience them, why? because the jokes and content where done with taste.
Condorito is actually a human Condor-man, yeah like the bird and the reason why people love him so much is because he resonates with middle to low income classes. People, particularly adults, could relate to his problems and hi jinks because he is just like us.
The enviroment and characters that surround him are both true and hilarious examples of south American people and culture. I’m just so happy I’m gonna get to re-live all the characters and classic jokes on a new format and on the freakin’ MOVIES.
Bonus pic of me in Third Grade Halloween Costume, guess who I was! CONDORITO!
This hit me hard on the FEELS. This Bird-Man was my first exposure to comic book culture and shaped my desire to become and artist and create my own characters and worlds.
I’m just happy it was never gone away, it has always been there, new issue every month, new things to laugh and new stories to read. He help me learn to read, he influenced my sense of humor and he made me laugh.
I’m just SO HAPPY that a South American Latino character is getting a theatrical release, and it looks SO PRETTY! IT’S PART OF MY CHILDHOOD BACK! BETTER THAN EVER!
It’s hard to resist the sound and spectacle of a classic endurance racer. And no one knows that better than Pepo Rosell of @xtrpepo.
This is ‘Rocket,’ a Triumph Legend TT that looks like it’d be at home in the pit lane at Le Mans. It’s got the engine upgrades to match, with ported heads, free-flowing DNA air filters and the exhaust headers from a Speed Triple.
