Universal Press Syndicate is expanding its Hispanic comic content offerings with a Spanish-language version of the popular general market cartoon Mail Order Ninja.
Currently, one of its most popular Hispanic comics is Condorito, which is syndicated here in the U.S. in Dallas' Al Dia, and Atlanta's Mundo Hispanico. "In all, Condorito has about 51 clients," says UPS sales administrator Carolina Aristimuño.
Another popular comic is Baldo, which also runs in Dallas' Al Dia and in Fort Worth's La Estrella. Baldo has about 40 clients.
UPS' latest comic acquisition is Monica y sus Amigos, from the creator of Ronaldinho Gaucho, the comic about the famed Brazilian Soccer player. Monica y sus Amigos will begin syndication this May.
