“(…) The true story 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 local Pascua Yaqui tribe. Largely due to Ramon’s activism, both in M.A.Y.O. in and with Model Cities Program, Yaqui were successfully integrated into the expanding metropolis of Tucson: families bought property, roads and sidewalks were built, and sewage systems installed. Ramon and his colleagues even founded a night school to help adults learn English and established the region’s first low-cost clinic to offer birth control.”
Lettering samples from “La Voz de M.A.Y.O: Tata Rambo", a comic book written by Henry Barajas, drawn by J. Gonzo, and edited by Claire Napier, inspired on the true story of Ramon Jaurigue. The comic had a successful Kickstarter campaign during October 2018, and the three-issue series will be published by Top Cow Productions during mid-2019.
“Bernardo won’t just be a letterer on your comic, he is a collaborator. It’s rare to work with someone that takes on a project and takes it personally while professionally offering notes to elevate your art. He deserves every penny.”
– Henry Barajas, writer.
