KAV'S COMIC DISCOVERIES: CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON

Anand 'Kav' Kaviraj is the master of Silver Age Comics. He finds some strange and wonderful things in those old school comics. Today he explores Jack Kirby's knowledge of Spanish from an issue of Captain America & The Falcon.

I love Jack Kirby, but he really should have stayed away from dialects and here we see him writing 'Spanglish'. The bad guy says, "Santiago will take him apart with 'mucho gusto'', which is literally translated as "Santiago will take him apart with I like much".

  1. haha that might be the direct translation but Mucho Gusto works, it means with much pleasure. Gotta defend my boy Kirby :)
