Rio Bravo Comics releases an origin prologue for the
new upcoming El Peso Hero book, El Peso Hero: La Patrona. The origin of El Peso Hero is rooted in powerful Mexican history. Mexico has known many heroes through her long and eventful history. Perhaps none have captured the imagination and stirred the hearts to the degree that Los Niños Héroes (Heroic Children) have. In 1847, six brave young cadets fought valiantly for their country during the Mexican- American War at the Battle of Chapultepec. Tragically, they died defending her honor.
We also honor the story of adelita Petra Herrera. Petra spear headed the siege of Torreon during the Mexican Revolution in 1913. This battle
was crucial in allocating resources for Pancho Villa’s army. Unfortunately Petra la Soldadera was never given credit
for her pivotal role. Portraying their stories has never been done in comic book form. The world wide release of El Peso Hero: La Patrona is just around corner and the list of comics for the highly popular franchise now includes 3 new El Peso Hero stories, only from Rio Bravo Comics. El Peso Hero: La Patrona is the 8th book in our series and the exciting conclusion to the El Peso Hero origin story arc.
