Best Geek Ever!



Hello, everyone! Salutes from the beautifull island of Puerto Rico. You may call me Batzarro. I decided to open my own weblog to host my web comics, among other junk I may post. But so it doesn't just become me showing pictures to you, here's a mini-bio.

I was born in this island, 23 years ago, the son of an paranoid artisan and a scatterbrained housewife and student. I grew up in my grandfather's land, wich happened to be sorrounded by a graveyard. I wasn't allowed to go very far on my own. Or even socialize a lot with my sorrounding extended family. Soon, I entered school. Wich is also when my life began to spiral downhill.

I became an outcast, a pariah. The worthless kid everyone laughts out. I eventually outgrew that phase, but then my parents moved. I wasn't sad to leave my "friends" behind, but I was sad to, again, be the "new kid" and again lose out any sign of non disgust. We moved quite a lot, and I began resenting pretty much anyone. Again, I wasn't allowed to go out and meet people either, so I entrenched in videogames.

Ah, the games. My first console was an Atari a "rich kid" gave away to us. After my brother and I learned of the NES' existence, we begged our old father to buy us one. One trip to New York later, we were playing Mario 2 and Bart vs The Space Mutants (never got past that first stage.)
Atari was a gateway console that lead to Nes, Genesis, N64 and beyond.

As I became more isolated from society, videogames became my main form of release. I stayed in school for pure survival, and every year I held to the hope one day, I wouldn't have to do it anymore, that I would not have to meet people as annoying as I met in the school.

And at last, I beat that boss. I began university, and dropped it for work at a museum. Where I discovered there wasn't an escape from the annoying people I met at school. I also discovered I don't like crowds, groups, or gatherings. What I do like, is drawing, comics, videogames/cartoons and everything in between.

I've come to learn not to resent the past. Because we can't be us, if the past is changed. Many bad things had to happen for us to get to where we are. And the worst probably didn't even happen to us.

So, here I'll post my art and webcomics. Some you'll get, some will be obscure, some will be chicks doing each other. Depends on the mood on wich I wake up. Taste a sample here, and here.

Hasta Luego!
