A Conversation with Phoenix Studios Founder, Kayden Phoenix

What do you do if you don’t see your culture represented in the media you enjoy consuming? If you’re Kayden Phoenix, you create it yourself. Phoenix, a native of Boyle Heights, California, founded Phoenix Studios, a publishing company where she can put out her own Latina Superhero graphic novels. Once all the heroes – Jalisco, Santa, Loquita, Ruca, and Bandita – are introduced, they will form the team A La Brava, which is also the name of the universe Phoenix has created. The comics feature artists Eva Cabrera, an Eisner-nominated illustrator, and Amanda Julina Gonzalez, a newcomer.

Phoenix, a self-taught screenwriter, spoke with The Nerd Element after her panel premiered at San Diego Comic-Con at Home 2021. Watch along as she discusses her background, what it was like being a panelist at SDCC at Home, and what the future has in store for her growing series of superheroes, as well as representation of Latinas in comics.
