Días de Consuelo Release Date Rescheduled to March 1, 2022

Radiator Comics is pleased to announce the release of Días de Consuelo by Dave Ortega has been rescheduled for March 1, 2022. The book is available for pre-order on the Radiator Comics website.

A tender biography filled with struggle and hope, Días de Consuelo brings to life the memories of the author’s abuela as they coincide with the storm of events that framed one of the most important uprisings of the twentieth century: The Mexican Revolution.

This graphic novel introduces middle grade through adult readers to the captivating story of Consuelo, her mother Evarista, grandmother Isabel and sister Beatriz as their lives are upended apart by civil war. Días de Consuelo is also the perfect introduction to revolutionary figures like Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata, the series of uprisings that they led to put an end to centuries-old systems of oppression, and the toll that this violence took on daily life. With its expressive cartooning style, this book celebrates the Mexican-American experience in a way that has yet not been seen in the comics medium.

The book’s originally scheduled release date of November 15, 2021 fell victim to the supply chain crisis facing many publishers and other industries.
