March 5 is almost here, which means we’re counting the days until we can tear into our copies of Sal & Gabi Break the Universe. In anticipation of that binge-reading adventure, we have characters to introduce. We’re doubling up this time around, so check out Culeco Academy’s own Yasmany and Gladis!
On the outside, Yasmany may appear to be your typical school bully. But at Culeco Academy, there’s always more to the students than meets the eye. Gabi knows this well, which is why she has taken Yasmany under her wing. Despite his stubbornness and aggression, Yasmany possesses the grace and elegance of a ballet dancer. He also possesses a portal to an alternate-universe chicken factory in his school locker.
In one universe, Gladis is a superstitious girl who believes that Sal’s unexplainable tricks make him a brujo, a sorcerer who practices black magic. In another universe, Gladis has a better sense of humor—as well as a much thicker Cuban accent. It’s a good thing both Gladises have the same class schedule in their respective worlds, because with Sal Vidón around, you never know who’s going to spend the day in which part of the multiverse.
