Box 1 Folder 4 Parada, Daniel, 2011

ZOTZ: SERPENT AND SHIELD. ISSUE #1. San Francisco, California: Daniel Parada (Co-edited by Jorge Parada), 2011. 1st ed. ISBN: 9780615562346. 4to, wrps, unpag., b+w illus. (cover and to pages in color). Paperback. New. "Zotz" means "bat" in some Mayan languages, and it is the title of a comic book created by Daniel Parada. The multi-arc story has supernatural elements and is set in 16th century Mesoamerica, in an imaginary world where the Spaniards never fully conquered the Americas. Zotz centers on the adventures of twin brothers Pakal and Kaan, whose characters are loosely based on Hunahpu and Xbalanque, the Hero twins featured in the Popol Vuh, the sacred K'iche Maya book of creation. Daniel developed the story over the last 6 years, motivated by the lack of Mesoamerican stories in our popular culture. Which is surprising given the epic sagas and existence of advanced cultures (past and present) in Mesoamerica. Trying to capture some of this grandness within a single tale, was perhaps the biggest challenge in the development of Zotz.

His other rommate is Malik Strong, a brilliant man who is slowly and surely withdrawing from society. Memo's love interest is Isla Song, the very personification of beauty, brains, and brawn. Memo lives the life of a poor man. He wears the same clothes from high school and often eats the cheapest thing he can find. His furniture is from thrift shops. He walks everywhere and avoids transportation in order to save money. He is a simple man with simple interests. However, deep within lies the heart of a warrior. Often times, his art reflects the power developed by the many years of ridicule from supposed "cool people". This all reinforces the theme of the story : Nerds posses an internal strength that shines in times of crisis." (Author's description)
