THE STORY

Who Is El Peso Hero?

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.

El Peso Hero has been one the most internationally talked about Latino superhero in decades. With modern social issues such immigration, human trafficking and institutional corruption, El Peso Hero has garnered attention and praise from the Latino community and been featured on Univision, CNN, Telemundo, Fusion, PRI The World, Conexion Thalia and countless of other media sites worldwide. El Peso Hero is humble, couragous, and is the only character in the series who's dialogue is in Spanish. Among the appeal of the comic book is the unique story and rich diversity of characters. 

El Peso Hero: Undocumented Hero El Peso Hero: Undocumented Hero is the 6th book in our series. The story opens up between a confrontation between hired sicario El Pozolero and El Peso Hero. In an exclusive interview bloggers Laura and Rodolfo meet the leader of Las Tortugas cartel and are told about a special radio field used by infamous rival druglord, El Catrin. Disabling the radios will cripple El Catrin's illicit border operation. Laura and Rodolfo must trek across the dangerous border to find and inform El Peso Hero. Can Laura and Rodolfo trust Las Tortugas? Will El Peso Hero agree to help?

Risks and challenges

As with any small press, self publishing venture...coming up with capital up front is always a problem. Between running thew business, paying it's bills, and keeping all our distribution channels open enough that people can actually GET the books we make...it makes it very difficult to finance a print run, when so much of the cost is up front.

With our previous kickstarter, we learned alot....we had never been through the process of printing through offset, or at such a large scale. We now understand the process, and what is needed, and expected of us. We've even found a printing partner that can produce a lower quantity, and still keep the price reasonable.

And even more importantly, the material for the majority of the trade paperback is already finished! Issues 1, 2, and 3 are completed, and sitting on our hard drive...the only work that remains is finalizing the covers and some of the bonus material. The main obstacle for us is coming up with the funds upfront to go into production. With your help, we can smash through that barrier...and get El Peso Hero's continuing adventures into your hands.
