Edgar Miranda-Rodriguez has created the first Puerto Rican superhero comic character, La Borinquena. “I’m independently putting this out right now because of what’s happening in Puerto Rico with the current debt crisis,” he reveals today in an interview with Ebro In The Morning.
He also wants to take a stance as an activist, and call attention to the fact that despite Puerto Rico having a congressman, they cannot vote for the President of the United States. “La Borinquena is to wake people up and mobilize!” While doesn’t want to lead a march on Washington, he wants to be a part of it.
