Border Town #1

Sep 12, 2018

This is a comic that includes a chupacabra disguised as a cop getting taken down by a teenage luchador in a Superman t-shirt alongside an undocumented Afro-Latina immigrant with a gun.

Here's hoping many more enjoy this re-introduction to Rainbow Brite, and the talents shaping her world.
