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.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
