Image Comics/Top Cow has revealed interior pages from the forthcoming original graphic novel by writer Henry Barajas, artist J. Gonzo, letterer Bernardo Brice, and edited by Claire Napier – La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo – which hits shelves this November 2019.
La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo is based on the oral history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the Pascua Yaqui tribe – paving the way to their federal recognition. Meanwhile, Ramon’s home life suffered as his focus was pulled from his family to the wider community, and from domesticity to the adrenaline of the campaign.
A resonant, neglected slice of American history, La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo brings to life for the first time the story Barajas’ great grandfather, Ramon Jaurigue, a/k/a Tata Rambo, and showcases his important cultural contributions.
La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo will be available at local comic shops on Wednesday, November 13 and at bookstores on Tuesday, November 19. It can be preordered at comic shops or on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo. Digital editions will also available across many digital platforms.
