Image Comics has announced the coming release of La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo, an original graphic novel by Henry Baraja, J. Gonzo, Bernando Brice, and editor Claire Napier.
La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo is based on the oral history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the Pascua Yaqui tribe—paving the way to their federal recognition. Meanwhile, Ramon’s home life suffered as his focus was pulled from his family to the wider community, and from domesticity to the adrenaline of the campaign.
A resonant, neglected slice of American history, La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo brings to life for the first time the story Barajas’ great grandfather, Ramon Jaurigue, a.k.a. Tata Rambo, and showcases his important cultural contributions.
La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo is scheduled to arrive on November 13, 2019.
