On Hard NOC Life, we continue Ricanstruction week on The Nerds of Color as
Miranda-Rodriguez joins the show to talk about
the origins of the anthology.
Originally announced in the New York Times,
Ricanstruction brings together over 100 artists, writers,
and celebrities telling stories of Puerto Rico's past, present, and
future, including crossovers between DC characters and La Borinqueña. In addition to discussing the aftermath
of Hurricane Maria -- and how a conversation with Dan Didio at New
York Comic-Con led to an arrangement to feature DC Comics super
heroes in the anthology, they talk about the importance of
intersectionality, social justice, and representation. Another
Ricanstruction preview can be found in The Village Voice.
Ricanstruction will be available in stores
everywhere on May 23. You can pre-order it on
Amazon or use the Diamond code JAN189143 when ordering through your
local comic shop.
