Denver Comic Con '15: Brian Venegas Brings Rotoro

Local comic creator Brian Venegas is taking his new comic book to Denver Comic Con… here's a quick peek at the Rotoro.

I started experimenting with the idea of the Rotoro project about two years ago after hearing stories about my grandfather who was born in Zacatecas Mexico in 1878. That's right, 1878. He died the year I was born and was well into his 90s at the time. There was always such a sense of myth and legend in these tales, and it inspired me to create a graphic novel dedicated to the history and culture of Mexico. Some of these stories are sad, but as I discovered in my youth, death and sadness are an integral part of Mexican storytelling. I value this, and in response created Rotoro, a character that is thrust into the vast unknown reaches of what it means to be human. For better, and worse.

You can find Brian – and Rotoro –


Oh and there are stickers and T-shirts too…
