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 activist Ramon Jaurigue. The comic had a successful Kickstarter campaign during October 2018, and the three-issue limited series was published by Top Cow Productions during mid-2019, with a collected trade paperback released later in early 2020.


From the official production description:


“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.”
