El Naco Asesino
(brush & technical pen)

It all began with a game of Dungeons & Dragons...it was rather boring so no one was into character and more into poking fun at each other.A friend was playing as a knight with a magic sword but was acting more like a maniac killer from an 80s' slasher film.Carlo Angie,another friend,started calling him 'El naco asesino y su machete sagrado' (The killing naco and his sacred machete).It sounded really funny and then someone said 'What if El Naco Asesino was a genuine comic book character?'
And so El Naco Asesino (with his loyal sidekick Macuarrito) was born.But instead of a psycho knight he became a Mexican vigilante.More exactly,the Mexican parody version of Batman —and Daredevil and Azrael and The Punisher and Conan The Barbarian.Carlo Angie wrote some ideas and I drew them.Nothing big,there were only a few pages and gags that made it into Xerox fanzines and that was all.

Unfortunately,Carlo Angie died some years ago.But I'm still alive so that means that El Naco Asesino can also still be alive —as far as a fictional character can be,of course.And posted here,is an updated version of the origin story —or at least the short version because the full origin includes the moment when a gas container landed on El Naco's head,and then he went to Catemaco to retrieve his sacred machete from the hands of a mad nuclear scientist (hey,I said it was a parody version!)

PS.-In case you're wondering what the heck is a naco you can look that up on wikipedia.Still,the naco concept on Mexican culture is much more complex and hard to explain because in the end,all and every Mexican is a little naco on the inside.

Tengo una amiga de Mexico bastante pija/fresa que cuando yo le comentaba que me gustaría ir alguna vez a ver la lucha libre me decía "eso es de nacos!"

Pues de hecho esa siempre ha sido la gracia,orgullo y ley no escrita de las luchas auténticas:su alto nivel de naquitud,desde los luchadores hasta la audiencia.
(aunque de un tiempo a la fecha las arenas han sido invadidas por yuppies y douches que buscan darse baños de pueblo o impresionar a sus novias en turno...y ahora que el Místico ya anunció que se va a la WWE,seguro se va a dejar venir una invasión adicional de hipsters.ni modo.).
