Who is soda pop comics?

Soda Pop Comics was created in 2007 by Carla Rodríguez (Writer) and Rosa Colón (illustrator). It’s the first female-run comics studio in Puerto Rico. Their philosophy is to focus on well crafted, colorful and interesting sequential art. They’ve self-published more than 60 individual publications, from series, one-shots, mini comics, art zines, and anthologies.

 

Their webcomic Cupcake Graffiti (2008-2015) won Best Webcomic at the Puerto Rico Comic Con Heroes Awards (2012). It was published in the newspaper, Metro PR, from October 2012 up to April 2013. Soda Pop Comics has tabled in local comic conventions and abroad.

 

In 2013, they curated their first sequential art exhibition “Paracosm: Arte Secuencial” accompanied by an original 24 page comic titled Paracosm. Since then, they have organized and collaborated in various art expos showcasing illustrations from Puerto Rican artists.

Soda Pop Comics is passionate about helping the Puerto Rican comic scene.

They’ve hosted workshops and classes on sequential for children and adults. To encourage more women to make comics, they published Soda Pop Anthology, a collection of comics by Puerto Rican women.

 

Soda Pop Comics created “Tintero: Festival de Comics y Arte”, an art festival focusing on comics and art, showcasing and promoting self published works in Puerto Rico.

Carla Rodriguez is a pastry cook and has a flair for storytelling. Carla Rodriguez is the winner of Puerto Rico Comic Con Heroes Awards Best Writer 2012.

 

Rosa Colón is a graduate of the University of Brighton (UK) with an MA in Sequential Design and Illustration, and a BA in Fine Arts from Puerto Rico University.
