We’ve always had a strange fascination with “Lucha Films,” aka “Mexican Wrestler movies,” the peculiar subgenre of Mexican cinema in which masked masters of the ring save the world. Recently, we were made aware of an extraordinary online collection of 150,000 Mexican lobby cards, including a wealth of wonderful original art from Lucha epics. A few of our favorites are collected after the jump; check out (and, if you’re so inclined, purchase) more from collector Gary Silver here.
