Here's a tribute to the greatest Mexican superhero of all time,
El Chapulín Colorado
(before you say El Santo, he didn't have any super powers and El Chapulín did... well... sorta. He self medicated on "chiquitolina" pills, which made him shrink to the size of a grasshopper and... I think that's about it). This character was part of a Mexican television comedy series that ran from 1972 to 1981. El Chapulín Colorado was the inspiration for
on "The Simpsons" and I have to say, it was also a huge influence for creating the Chorizo Bandit character on my cómic "
." He was created by comedian
Chespirito (Roberto Gómez Bolaños)
who recently passed away, leaving an unforgetable body of work, funny characters and good times. He will definitely be missed.
