Which gives me a good excuse (but did i need any?) to mention the work of Dulce Pinzón. The Real Story of Superheroes series pays homage to a hero who has gone unnoticed: the Mexican immigrant worker in New York. Many of them work long hours in extreme conditions for very low wages which are saved at great sacrifice and sent to families in Mexico who rely on them to survive.
