The first issue of the non-fiction historical civil rights comic, La Voz De M.A.Y.O. Tata Rambo, launched a successful Kickstarter campaign last Fall. The creative team of writer Henry Barajas, artist J. Gonzo, and editor Claire Napier, are ready for the second issue and this time, they’ve brought along cover artist Eva Cabrera and letterer Bernardo Brice. Recently, they started a new campaign to fund the highly anticipated second chapter.
In the story, they continue to follow Ramon Jaurigue and the group M.A.Y.O as they relentlessly fight for civil rights of the indigenous Pasqua Yaqui tribe from both the local Tucson City Council and the national government. In this issue, they explore challenges Native Americans faced including drug addiction, alcoholism, institutional racism and having to fight for their land when the border crossed them.
La Voz is a personal story to writer Barajas because Jaurigue is his great grandfather. Check out a preview of issue #2 below.
