Wow. Sorry to have been away so long.
Here is a quick post to help get me back into blogging regularly again. The theme of these collected comic book factoids is the Spanish in the American Southwest. Clearly their influence on the American westward expansion is huge–from Texas, to Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California and back again to Arizona and New Mexico. I personally prefer reading westerns set along the border or that sometimes take place in Mexico. There is nothing like a sleepy whitewashed “pueblo blanco” as a setting for some serious gun play and action. Senoritas, federales, vaqueros, haciendas, banditos, and of course lost Spanish “oro”.
