COMES TO THE
BRONX HEROES UNIVERSE
EDGAR ALLEN POE
BRONX HEROES TURNS 12 YEARS OLD.
The year was 2000 when artist/writer, Ray Felix decided to get into the comic book business. He resurrected two comic strips from his SVA days in the mid-1990's. " A World Without Superheroes" and "God: The Second Coming". These were the first two titles that featured Superheroes who lived in the Bronx. It was the seed that was planted which brought about a vriety of comic artist and writers who featured in "No-1 Anthology" and shortly after the "Bronx Heroes" and hit comic serial, "Runaway Slave". Join Bronx Heroes 12th Anniversary as we feature, "Bronx Heroes 1.0". A collection of early titles that paved the way for Bronx Heroes Publishing.
"latinos in comics" features a real south bronx hero in 2015.

Benjamin Melendez is a real life Bronx Hero. The legendary founder of the Ghetto Brothers initiated the 1971 gang truce that led to the creation of hip hop in the South Bronx. His life is now turned into a graphic novel. In conversation with the author Julian Voloj, Melendez discusses growing up in the South Bronx, the events that led to the gang truce, and how it feels to be now in a graphic novel.
