La Borinqueña Comics with Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez

La Borinqueña and her creator, Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, are not only raising awareness of Puerto Rico and its dilemmas, but is also raising cold, hard cash to help Puerto Ricans recover from Hurricane Maria, fend off the pandemic, and move toward self-determination.

La Borinqueña’s alter ego is Marisol Rios De La Luz, a young Brooklyn resident studying environmental science at Columbia University, who goes to stay with family in Puerto Rico while doing research. She eventually receives her superpowers from a Taino goddess and her sons. Her powers are connected to nature. She has superhuman strength and can manipulate the elements: earth, water, and air; and a mystical star that opens portals for teleportation and for viewing historical moments. This is a story about Marisol's self-discovery as an Afro-Puerto Rican. Throughout the story, she establishes an even deeper connection with her culture. 

Learn more about La Borinqueña and enjoy a meet and greet with Edgardo. Book signings will also take place at the end of the event.

Comic Books and other La Borinqueña merchandise can be purchased the day of.
