More from the New York Times:
The comic book community is teaming up again to raise money for Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Puerto Rico with the release of the anthology “Ricanstruction: Reminiscing and Rebuilding Puerto Rico” on May 23. It is being produced by the graphic designer Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez. “I wanted to inspire people, to share stories about the island and to help rebuild,” he said. All profits from the book will benefit relief efforts.
One of the highlights for Mr. Miranda-Rodriguez is that La Borinqueña, the Puerto Rican heroine he created in 2016, will be fighting alongside Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and other DC Comics characters for the betterment of Puerto Rico. DC Comics allowed the use of their heroes because profits from the comic will benefit organizations like El Puente, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit group that will provide solar-powered lamps, clothing, food and other supplies to Puerto Rico.
