Our monthly blogger Luis R. Torres returns with his TALES OF TORRES blog. This week he reminds us that before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball, there were other Blacks– Latinos–who were also doing their share of breaking down walls.
In last week’s ZOMBIE MEX DIARIES our zombie boy Lazaro De La Tierra had a cataclysmic seizure. This week his girlfriend, Pearl Gonzalez, comes to the rescue. What’s happening to Lazaro and is he really the Oñate spy that betrayed the Mano Poderosa zombies? Don’t miss this week’s episode! And also don’t miss Angela Ortiz’s PHOTO OF THE WEEK, this week its all about downtown Los Angeles.
