Will Rodriguez began Mangled Stare in 2001 after realizing that his dream to create a comic strip hadn’t lost any steam since it first popped into his mind at the age of 8.
After marriage, a mortgage, and the birth of his first child became a reality, Will knew that he wanted to leave his children a legacy of the talent with which he had been blessed. Chronicling the events of parenthood and marriage just seemed a natural fit for the budding comic. Originally, the character Mimo was going to be a wrestler called The Puerto Rican Mangler, based on a joke in the office one day. Will remembered that he wasn’t too keen on wrestling and changed the idea to push Mimo into the role of a vigilante-style super hero, The Mighty Mangler.
Now readers get to see how a father and husband balances his home life with the rigors of superhero duty. Find hundreds of comics published on mangledstare.com and voluntarily donate to show your support!
