La Borinqueña is more than just the story of a young Puerto Rican student who gains mystical powers to help defend her island, it’s also the story of her creator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez. Originally from the South Bronx, Miranda-Rodriguez grew up with a love for comics, creating his own as a kid to sell to friends to help buy more comics. He’s since curated an art show and written for Marvel Comics, as well as worked with Hip-Hop Icon Darryl ”DMC” McDaniels of Run-DMC on their book DMC.


Using elements from the comic art as reference, Bronx-based professional graffiti artists and muralists, the TATS CRU blessed the walls of Casita Maria with an amazing work of art that blends the two artistic worlds together. Perfectionist to the end, they were still doing touch ups before the crowd formed.
