NY – La Borinqueña Lecture

Join Colgate University for a discussion with the creator of the Afro-Puerto Rican superhero La Borinqueña and Colgate alum, Edgardo Miranda-Rodríguez (class of ’93) on Thursday April 27th at 6:00 PM. If you missed his visit last fall, you can check out a review of his talk and work in the Colgate Scene. This time he’ll be here to discuss the first issue of his comic with readers and fans.

Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez is the writer and creator of the critically acclaimed and best-selling graphic novel La Borinqueña which he self-published under his own studio, Somos Arte. Edgardo’s debut as a writer for Marvel has been received with critical acclaim similar to his initial work with Marvel as curator of two exhibitions Santerians: The Art of Joe Quesada and Marvelous Color. Via Somos Arte, he has a client roster that includes Marvel, Atlantic Records, Columbia University, and various Latino non-profits like ASPIRA of New York, El Puente and the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute. Edgardo was the Artistic Director of Pa’lante Siempre Pa’lante, part of the acclaimed PBS POV Documentary Series which received the Silver Apple Award from the National Media Alliance. He is also co-founder of the graphic novel publishing company Darryl Makes Comics with his business partner, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels.
