SPIDER-CALACA Poster Comic by javierhernandez SPIDER-CALACA Poster Comic by javierhernandez
New Poster Comic for March:

THE SPIDER-CALACA

One of my CALACAS FOR JUSTICE characters. Mash-ups of Dia de Los Muertos calacas and classic superhero archetypes. (I won't specify WHICH archetypes, naturally!)

If you want to read a little more about the Spider-Calaca and the other CALACAS OF JUSTICE, check out my blog [link]

This is my first time seeing some calaca characters of yours and a mexican spider-man version look really awesome, especially the humor. Lol...

Yes, my comic was a lesson for the kids of the world: What's worse than failing?

Never getting a chance to prove yourself!!

Thanks!

Haha poor Spider-Calaca! He didn’t even get to do anything XD I love the expression on his face in the last panel too...he likes scorning his bad luck but also kinda embarrassed. Great work!

Thanks, Luis. Working on a humor story is so much fun. (As you know!) There's a liberating freedom to it, but at the same time, you're walking a tightrope regarding hoping you're being funny and not too lame. At least for me.

I second what the comments above said. I love this. I especially like that it's a humor comic. It's such a fun goofy style. And it falls under parody so you're safe to boot.

Hmm, for some reason, as of this minute, the revised art file I uploaded doesn't seem to have taken effect yet. Is there a delay with DeviantArt regarding edits? It's been 10 minutes and the new file isn't visible yet.

I'll check back later in the day.....

Jason and Jose, thank you, sirs!

Coming a month after The Wake, it was really fun to let loose with a humor strip. And who don't love calacas?!

Jas: Sometimes, as you put it, things just work out perfect. Professor Pulpo should give a certain 8-limbed corporate character a run for his money!

Thanks to Mr. Gonzalexx, I've fixed a typo! And I also gave the colors a slightly darker, richer hue. Normally I don't like to go George Lucas and tinker with a project once it's done, but I felt a little adjustment just makes it look better, without changing the fundamental aspect of the comic.

I love this "world" you created, man. And the funny style rocks. This has great potential. Great stuff, Jav. Best of luck with the Calacas!
