El Cóndor Ciego


In 2005 I collaborated with writer Alvaro Alemán on this comic adaptation of the short story by César Dávila Andrade of the same name. El Cóndor Ciego (The Blind Condor) tells the story of an old and wise Condor who seeks suicide. His pupils help him on his quest unknowing his plans until the very last moment. In the comic the story takes a twist with Ecuadorian politics and the suicide becomes also political. Alvaro is professor of English literature and Comics at the University San Francisco de Quito in Ecuador. You can download the full comic in PDF format. In 2005 we won the first place at the Itchiban national comic contest in Ecuador.
