Reader's Diary #1992- Jaime Hernandez: The Dragon Slayer

Jaime Hernandez's The Dragon Slayer: Folktales of Latin America is one of those cases where I like the content more than the presentation. The three folktales are amusing and perhaps educational in that folktale sort of way, and I don't have much familiarity with Latin American folktales so I found the cultural stuff very interesting.

When I say that I liked the content more than the presentation, I should also note that I didn't have any serious reservations with Hernandez's work. The biggest issue is probably that it's too short, too few folktales. The art is simple, and while I didn't personally find it remarkable, it's also completely fine.
