“Miranda-Rodriguez’s comic book creation— an Afro-Latina, environmentally powered superhero, La Borinqueña— is a superpowered love letter that basks in the spiritually connective pride that all Puerto Ricans feel toward La Isla del Encanto. He created the heroine, who shares a name with the Puerto Rican national anthem, not just to continue the growing diversity that has reached superhero comics, but to serve as a reminder that Puerto Rico can weather its storms, be they financial or natural disasters.”– The Washington Post
Miranda Rodríguez will present the second installment of his hit comic book. This original, modern day superhero exemplifies the patriotism, history, and mysticism of the island, with powers originating from Atabex, the Taíno mother goddess, and her sons.
