The Curse of the Capistrano

August 9, 1919


This is McCulley’s earliest ZORRO story, The Curse of the Capistrano, published in six weekly issues, commencing on August  9, 1919.   It was later republished under the title, The Mark of Zorro.  There was little in the story to guide the artist’s hand in depicting ZORRO in a way that is recognizable to us today.
