I love writing Miguel. He’s intended to be a parody of “ethnic” characters from the 70’s (and the 80’s, and the 90’s, and the 2000’s), who spoke a weird mixture of complex, overly-proper English; archaic words, like ‘palaver’; and whatever words the writer could remember from his high school foreign language class, whether they made sense or not.

We grew up reading these “progressive” characters, and now that we make comics, we want to poke fun at them. That’s Miguel.
