Phoenix got the F both because her name in spanish is spelled Fenix, and because she is one of the fastest hitters in the Traveling Seers team.
This was the very first illustration I did for Traveling Seers. Maria, on the home plate, ready to start an inning. There’s a lot to say about Maria: why I choose that nickname, why he bears with it, and yes, how he feels about leaving his country to chase his dream. While the story began in spanish a long time ago, I am just showing it in English now. However, don’t worry: Once we get up to date with the spanish version, it will keep going.
This month Traveling Seers will be updated every weekday in Tapas. This is to give you guys a bigger archive to read, and to do a subscription drive at Tapas: If I get to 300 subscribers before Nov 1, I will keep a Monday-Wednesday-Friday update schedule through November and onwards. So, as they say in Youtube: Like and subscribe!
Traveling Seers is a project very dear to my heart, even if it is on temporary hiatus. It was the last spanish-first comic I did, and the very first Mexican Baseball Comic published -ok, so I self-published, it still counts.
The story is about a baseball team formed by different kinds of psychics, who play baseball against the ghosts of those who loved the game. And well, I love my team. And I love their manager, Murphy the Goat, who is a bit infamous for… other reasons.
I hope to come back to them soon. I am working on the third volume, but it’s slow. Still, I never forget them.
