Hansel Perez

I was born in Guatemala and raised on Long Island. I learned about American culture by watching TV shows like Sesame Street and the Muppet Show. I can attest, diversity in children's media is important. When a child sees themselves represented on screen or in a book, it expands their horizon. They can be the hero (and not a side-kick). For this reason, I'm committed to telling stories that feature Latinx protagonists. I'm currently working on an online comic sequel to the Brothers Grimm story Hansel and Gretel called, Where's Gretel?

A Random Cloud
My dad's cars
Where's Gretel?

Gretel has vanished into the jungle.
Her father and brother each feel
feel guilt about her disappearing.
Can they find her in time before the
Guatemalan jungle consumers her?

Where's Gretel will be a web comic
about the mystery of family love.

Coming Fall 2021.
