Creator and Writer Kayden Phoenix Bring ‘A La Brava‘, an all Latina Super Heroine Team to WonderCon, in Anaheim, CA, Friday, April 1 through April 3, 2022.

WonderCon is back! The excitement is in the air and fanboys and fangirls alike could not be more excited to return to visiting conventions. However, no convention would be complete without an Artist Alley and with that comes longtime fangirl turned comic creator, Kayden Phoenix.

Phoenix, a Los Angeles, CA native has longed for representation within the comic book world and who better to create a series of graphic novels based on Latina characters than a Chicana herself?

Enter, ‘A La Brava‘, an all Latina Super Heroine

Team that features five heroines all across the United States from the New York, Florida, Texas and California. Each has her own unique abilities and origin stories, creating a world for Phoenix’s characters that could eventually lead to Latin America.

We spoke with Phoenix about her artistic style, what it means to crossover from fangirl to creator and how important representation is to an ever expanding audience.

Official Synopsis:

As covid restrictions end in Southern California, the illustrious WonderCon shines its light welcoming eager comic and toy enthusiasts to run amuck on the convention floor. With their open doors, comes the first team of Latina superheroes in comic book history, A La Brava.

Creator/Writer Kayden Phoenix, having been a long-time full pass attendee herself, is proud to see herself on the other side of the table with her publishing company, Phoenix Studios.

Always inspired by WonderCon’s brilliance, Kayden Phoenix wanted to create Latina superheroes that empower and invigorate. “I want to create a superhero mindset for all marginalized individuals, particularly Latine.” Support from national news channels like
Disney/ABC Eyewitness News 7, Spectrum News 1, and international Spanish stations, Univision and Telemundo, have broadcasted Phoenix’s comics echoing the importance of diverse representation.

Combine Phoenix’s vision with a fresh-eyed Latina artist team like acclaimed GLAAD and Eisner-nominated illustrator, Eva Cabrera (SANTA, LOQUITA) and newcomer Amanda Julina Gonzalez (JALISCO, RUCA), an uprooted New Mexican who recently graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design in Animation, and you get historymaking, invigorating art for new audiences.

JALISCO, a blade-wielding folklorico dancer that uses her culture as her weapon. SANTA, a brawler that takes down the ICE detention centers. LOQUITA, a teen detective in the supernatural world. RUCA, a vigilante serving justice. BANDITA, the gunslinger in modern day New York.

Barely getting started with the universe, four of the five origin stories are already out, with the 5th superhero being printed. Phoenix Studios’ Phase II and III are already in progress. Phoenix will be in 3 WonderCon panels this year “Diversity in Comics, Films, & Games; Queer Creators of Comics Assemble!; and the annual “Enter the Latina Superhero”.
