Teen Jinx Holliday is Riverdale’s go-to babysitter. The (often unruly) kids that she watches over always change, seemingly for the better. The key to her success? Her book of unique fairy tales, all of which tell a moralistic story—usually grim, gruesome ones that frighten the children with Jinx as the star of each and every one. What sinister, I mean, serious lessons will she teach her wards?

SDCC 2022: A La Brava, the First Latina Superhero Team Debuts!

As covid restrictions end in Southern California, the illustrious San Diego Comic Con shines its light welcoming eager comic and toy enthusiasts to run amuck on the convention floor. With their open doors, comes the first Latina superhero team 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.

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 history-making, 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 supernatural teen detective. RUCA, a chola serving justice. BANDITA, the gunslinger in modern day New York. A LA BRAVA, the 1st Latina superhero team in history.

You can see Kayden Phoenix debut A LA BRAVA, the Latina Superhero team graphic novel at her table in SDCC Artist Alley.

Archie Horror returns with Jinx’s Grim Fairy Tales!

Archie Comics is kickstarting Halloween early with the August release of Chilling Adventures Presents… Jinx’s Grim Fairy Tales. The one-shot anthology features a trio of stories hosted by a grown-up version of the classic Archie character Jinx Holliday, better known as Li’l Jinx, and it leads a full season of new horror releases to be announced in coming weeks. 

The issue opens with a framing story by Magdalene Visaggio and Craig Cermak in which babysitter Jinx keeps her unruly charges in line by sharing some especially grim moralistic fairy tales. Visaggio and Cermak also tell one of those sinister stories, “The True Story of Cantanella.” Li’l Jinx first appeared in Pep Comics #62 by Joe Edwards back in 1946. She earned her nickname by being born on Halloween and kept up an appropriately mischievous spirit in a decades-long comics run.

Writer/actor James III and Eva Cabrera contribute “Suzie & the Monkey’s Paw” to the anthology, which is rounded out by “Will the Real Sorcerer Please Stand Up?” by Joe Corallo and Evan Stanley

Jinx’s Grim Fairy Tales releases August 17 in comic shops nationwide, and will boast a cover by Vic Malhotra with an open-to-order variant cover by Archie Horror mainstay Francesco Francavilla.

Witness the Rise of the Latina Superhero at WonderCon@Home

WonderCon@Home 2021

With the rise of superheroes throughout the years in movies and comics, fair representation has been a long-discussed topic. Luckily, Phoenix Studios has answered back by introducing a team of Latina superheroes called A La Brava. In this superhero universe, Latinas of different heritages fight against female injustices. Each book tells its origin story and social cause. In the end, the Latina superheroes form a team called A La Brava.

Being a 3rd generation Chicana from East Los Angeles, Kayden Phoenix wanted to create Latina superheroes as multifaceted, atypical, and diverse as the people she’s always found in the real world. “A big part of my life’s purpose is to give voice to stories as multifaceted, atypical, and diverse as the people we find in the real world.”

Combine Phoenix’s passion with a fresh-eyed Latina artist team like acclaimed Eisner nominated illustrator, Eva Cabrera and newcomer Amanda Julina Gonzalez, an uprooted New Mexican who recently graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design in Animation, and you get beautiful and inspiring crafted pieces of art.

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 taking justice. BANDITA, the gunslinger in modern-day New York.

Though a relatively new Universe, only the first three Latina superhero books are out, WonderCon found and invited the A La Brava to be apart of the show. Kayden Phoenix and Amanda Julina Gonzalez are completely grateful to be in ‘Rise of the Latina Superhero’ panel (Fri March 26th at 1pm PST) as well as have a virtual booth there next weekend March 26th and 27th.
