- Fantasia from Mexico! Mexican Comic Book Graphic Novel Fantasia
- There was a
Fantasia not produced by Disney, and it was a comic book which came from
south of the Rio Grande. This one had "all the imagination of the most
extraordinary and rapporteurs of the fantastic real, poured in..."
according to the pitch and my translator. From the illustrations I can
believe it. A graphic novel or comic book from Mexico circa 1954. I
don't find a copy on my least favorite auction site, but I had to scroll
through plenty of hits for the one in which Mickey runs from brooms.
Horror, Mystery, Fantasy and Reality you will find on the creepy pages of Fantasia! It makes me want a time machine and a border pass to go find some issues. 60 years ago. I don't know if the Mexican comic book industry had a "golden age" but it seems the illustrations are universal, as these resemble all those Dr. Wertham found offensive. Gore knows no border!
