Baldo to feature “El Muerto” (The Dead One)

Hector Cant’u and Carlos Castellanos’ Baldo comic strip will feature independent comic book superhero “El Muerto” (The Dead One) during the last week of October and on the first and second day of November – the Day of the Dead holiday for many Latinos.

“The Day of the Dead is a special holiday for lots of Latinos and we thought this was a unique way for Baldo and his family to pray for and remember a special loved one in their lives,” says “Baldo” co-creator Hector Cant’u.

El Muerto was created by Los Angeles artist Javier Hernandez and follows the story of 21-year-old Diego de la Muerte, who while on his way to a Dia de los Muertos festival is abducted by Aztec gods only to return to Earth a year later with supernatural powers.

I thought El Muerto swung around bashing people on the head with a guitar. Oh wait, that was Quickdraw as El Kabong.

That’s right, and “Doooon’t you dis-remember it, Bubba Boy”.
