Good day, fellow comic lovers! Today I want to write about a comic near and dear to me. The Spanish language Las Aventuras de Weepaman y Weepito.
Weepaman actually is the VERY FIRST character I ever created. And....it's straight up comedy? I know, I'm known to include comedic moments in my stories to keep otherwise dark or somber stories more light and balanced, but I am not exactly known for doing straight up comedy. Much less a comedic social commentary! But here it is.
The 2 chapters I made actually was met with acclaim and controversy in the forums I uploaded them to. This was a troll comic in its heart before troll was a common thing on the internet, and the people that got it to this day enjoy it. And the people that hated it to this day still have me blocked. My bad.
A small backstory especially for people who never read this comic:
This is the story told through the eyes of two brothers, and how their lives revolve around the wonderful and sometimes bizarre life in Puerto Rico, and how they interact with their family, friends, and environment.
Nothing was safe, to the government, to schools, to family, to relationships, to the macho latin culture stereotype, it's my writing at its most politically incorrect, and I reveled in it, it was SO much fun to do, no matter what happened back then. It also helped me as a creator to vent when I would do stories that went too dark for periods of times, and it just kept some sense of balance in me that I never regret doing.
It was so fun, that as a matter of fact, the planned third chapter to make this a trilogy, which was written about five years ago, well, that's a goal for 2021.
I am aiming for a late summer start for chapter 3. And not just that. As with all other old material that was lost in various events, I am redoing chapters 1 & 2 with brand new art and updating it a bit to refresh it as part of the Truthful Comics Edition series.
I know this one likely won't generate much buzz, but, it's actually one of the projects I'm most excited about doing because it's so different than what I usually do, and for as much fun as I have making these, if you want to give this a chance, I hope you have fun reading it. If you know Spanish. Again, my bad. You can find the original 2 chapters in my old website here enterthedangerzone.weebly.com/webcomics.html
