"Just as Strange as You" Starring Germán Aguilar & Eva Quintero of the Strange Academy

Writer: Terry Blas
Artist: Julius Ohta
Colorist: Erick Arciniega 

"It's important for me that Latinas see themselves reflected back as smart and resourceful and brave and adventurous. Eva's character is very much informed by that and sending her to Strange Academy and off on an adventure with fellow Mexican student, German Aguilar was such a fun way to showcase both of their powers and the possibilities they hold," says Blas. "She made a promise to Humberto/Reptil that she wouldn't stop learning magic until she knew how to find his parents and Comunidades kicks off the beginning of her journey to do that."

"Pa'lante Juntos" Starring White Tiger

Writer: Daniel José Older
Artist: Germán Peralta
Colorist: Jesus Aburtov

"As Marvel's first Latinx Super Hero, White Tiger holds such an integral and iconic status in comic book history, and it was an incredible honor and privilege to be able to write a story about him and the legendary Young Lords, revolutionary activists from the same era," says Older. "I'm thrilled to be part of this amazing project along with so many incredible creators."

"Legados" Starring White Tiger (Ava Ayala) 

Writer: Amparo Ortiz
Artist: Caio Majado
Colorist: Dono Sánchez-Almara

“Writing a story for Marvel was already a dream come true, but to slip into Ava Ayala's shoes in Puerto Rico is an honor I'll cherish forever," says Ortiz. "I wanted to redefine what she considers strength and reinforce her commitment to the island her family calls home.”

"Latinx and Proud" Starring Spider-Man (Miles Morales) and Spider-Girl (Anya Corazon)

Writer: Julio Anta
Artist: Enid Balám
Inks: Oren Junior
Colorist: Federico Blee

“I’m so proud to participate in this MARVEL VOICES anthology, and honored to have the opportunity to tell this story–a multi-generational conversation between Anya Corazon, Miles Morales, and his mother Rio about the term 'Latinx,'" says Anta. "While this is no doubt a contentious topic within our community, I hope that this comic helps to explain it, and makes a case for inclusive language and respecting each other’s personal identities.”

Writer: Juan Ponce
Artist: Wilton Santos

“It's truly an honor to take part in such an important book--in my wildest dreams, I couldn't imagine this," says Ponce. "Nina the Conjuror is the Brazilian Sorcerer Supreme of the 1950's, her world is so unique, I knew early on I just had to tell a Nina story, because she's truly one of a kind.”

"Loco-Motion" Starring Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)

Writer: Yehudi Mercado
Artist: Mauro Fodra 
Colorist: Fernando Sifuentes

“I was absolutely thrilled to be able to play in the world of Ghost Rider, especially with Robbie Reyes," says Mercado. "I'm a huge fan of Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, the original creators, and I love putting car chases in my books. I think it's more important than ever to highlight strong, heroic Latinx characters. My one-shot is definitely not subtle, but we live in very unsubtle times.”

"Operation: New World" Starring Risque

Writers: Desirée Proctor & Erica Harrell 
Artist: Paco Medina
Colorist: Federico Blee

“With the X-Men expanding their territory beyond Krakoa, we thought Risque would have an interesting point of view on this as both sides of her family (Cuban and Seminole) were oppressed by foreign colonizers," says Proctor and Harrell. "We’re so excited Marvel let us tell this story, and to work alongside Paco Medina, Frederico Blee, and Ariana Maher.”

Writer: Alex Segura
Artist: Alba Glez
Inks: José Marzan Jr. 
Colorist: Cris Peter

"I grew up reading X-Men and New Mutants and have a love for the Claremont/Sienkiewicz run, so being able to add to that mythos through one of my favorite X-characters, Sunspot, was a huge honor," says Segura. "I hope fans enjoy our story."

"There isn't a Super Hero in all of comics that means more to me and I'm excited to have contributed to this Spider-Man's mythos."
