El Peso Hero is heavily influenced by the modern day challenges people from both sides of the U.S-Mexican border face. The main story is centered on “El Peso Hero” - a rogue hero who is standing up against Mexico's cartels, corrupt officials and human traffickers. The results are often destructive and deadly.

" The exploits of El Peso Hero connect with the indignation of those affected by border violence" -Ana Azpurua, Al Dia Newspaper
"Spectacular and Relevant"- Lidia Barron, Correspondent Primer Impacto Univision
"The artwork is bold with a loose sketchy feel.It has a raw emotional edge to it"- Maia Ades, SciFi4Me.com
I funded the production and printing of El Peso Hero #1 myself and it nearly broke the bank between printing costs, shipping costs. In the end, the biggest obstacle is printing. Printing in small quantities dramatically increases the cost per book, which in turn is reflected in the cost I set forth to you, the reader. If I can successfully fund this Kickstarter, I can afford to print El Peso Hero # 2 and #3 in a much larger quantity which will save money in the long run, passing that savings on to you... immediately, right here in the Kickstarter.
The prices reflected in the rewards sections are for printing a quantity of 300 books. Which is NOT huge but helps bring the cost down dramatically. Also note, the issues will run 30+ pages. .
If successful this Kickstarter will fund all production costs (printing), and all post-production costs (shipping and shipping materials.)

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at El Peso Hero's Kickstarter. Let me know if you have any questions.
Risks and challenges
El Peso Hero is rather ambitious. Apart from penciling, coloring the interiors and creating all the art , I will personally take care of every aspect of the project. I have designed the budget and rewards to be things I can handle myself. I won't have to do anything I have never done before. I have self published, created printing and shipping budgets, shipped endlessly, designed and printed books and t-shirts. I have learned from my mistakes and the mistakes of others and have planned accordingly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
