I spent my junior year in Spain many years ago. Today, my favorite way to review my Spanish is to read “Baldo,” a comic strip by Cantu and Castellanos published online by the San Jose Mercury News. Since the Mercury publishes the strip in both Spanish and English, I can test my understanding, which is, usually but not always, good. I believe anyone could appreciate the gentle humor of this comic with Latin flavor By the way, to search online for more comic strips in Spanish, use the phrase “Tiras cómicas.” And our Fremont library has more titles, too, of comics in Spanish.
From last Sunday (3/25/12), here are two versions of “Baldo,” with comments about freedom.
