La Borinqueña & Wonder Woman Join Forces With Other DC Superheroes in ‘Ricanstruction’ for Hurricane Maria Relief

Comic anthology, Ricanstruction: Reminiscing & Rebuilding Puerto Rico, is on its way and will benefit the victims of the devastating Hurricane Maria which hit Puerto Rico six months ago.

In a joint venture by Somos Arte LLC, and DC Comics, La Borinqueña (who was created by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez), will team up with Wonder Woman and members of the Justice League in original stories that will explore Puerto Rico’s history and the rebuilding of the beautiful island.

The piece will include works and art from Gail Simone, Jorge Jimenez, Yanick Paquette, Tony Daniel, Javier Munoz, Ruben Blades, Mike Allred and Rosario Dawson amongst others; totalling over 130 comic artists, writers, and Puerto Rican and Latinx celebrities.

Miranda-Rodriguez shared the news via his Twitter page. Check out the tweet below:

In an interview with Previews World, Miranda-Rodriguez said, “Having the opportunity to team up ­La Borinqueña with these characters brings attention immediately to those in need in Puerto Rico.”

Currently, approximately 121,000 residents of Puerto Rico are still without power, six months after the hurricane made landfall.

Ricanstruction: Reminiscing & Rebuilding Puerto Rico is set to hit your local comic shops on May 23. Be sure to pre-order your copy or pick it up when it hits the shelves. 100% of the profits will go toward Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Puerto Rico.
