Past EventsJan. 26, 2019: La Voz de MAYO Tata Rambo Release Party
Hi De Ho Comics is proud to host another Comadres y Comics Podcast sponsored event, La Voz de M.A.Y.O. Tata Rambo Release Party with creator Henry Barajas on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 6 PM.
A resonant, neglected slice of American history is told for the first time, in graphic-novel format. Featuring art by Jason “Gonzo” Gonzalez, edited by Claire Napier, and script and lettering by Henry Barajas: journalist, comedian, author, native Tucsonan, and great-grandson of the story’s main character, Tata Rambo, aka Ramon Jaurigue.
La Voz De M.A.Y.O. is 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.
Utilizing newspaper clippings, interviews with surviving MAYO members, and Ramon’s authored articles, La Voz De M.A.Y.O. dramatizes the remarkable life and achievements of my great-grandfather—and in so doing, tells the story not just of a single man, but of a family, a tribe, a nation.
Join us for a Q & A with Henry and a grand celebration of his success and Tata Rambo’s legacy.Dec. 15, 2018: Star Trek Waypoint Signing

When a crack in the border between worlds releases an army of monsters from Mexican folklore, the residents of Devil’s Fork, AZ, blame the ensuing weirdness—the shared nightmares, the otherworldly radio transmissions, the mysterious goat mutilations—on “God-dang illegals.” With racial tensions supernaturally charged, it’s up to new kid in town Frank Dominguez and a motley crew of high school misfits to discover what’s really going on in this town torn between worlds.
Eric will be on hand to meet fans and sign copies of issue #1. There will also be a Food and Arts & Craft area sponsored by Comadres y Comics Podcast, a podcast that highlights the Latinx presence in the comic book industry as creators, characters and fans.
