The World of Aluna

(AOTN)- You may be very familiar with Paula Garces’ roles in such properties as “Law and Order: SVU,” “Devious Maids” and the “Harold and Kumar” series of films. But, you’ve likely not heard about her passion for comics and gaming, or of her heroic property that’s taking NY Comic Con by storm this weekend, “The World of Aluna.”

Now, that’s a shame, because “The World of Aluna” is a fresh take on the Super Heroine. One that spins the “touched-by-gods” trope and places it squarely in the Pre-Columbian New World. A butt-kicking, super powered, bridge between two worlds who was just on time in the 1500s.

Garces’ co-creation is also a timely figure for the 21st Century, a role model not limited by history. Aluna is a genre bending, cross cultural superwoman, poised to make some noise with the big comic book boys and girls.

But, now’s the time for you to find out about all that for yourself…

Description:A conquistador, Francisco Cortes, interrupts a ritual in the jungles of South America and encounters the powerful Goddess – Pachamama. Back in Spain years later, his young daughter, Aluna, would rather spend her time fencing with her friend Antonio than take dancing lessons. When Francisco gives Aluna a strange green gemstone, she discovers that she has supernatural strength. But is this a blessing or a curse? ALUNA is a new ‘superhero’ comic book series that takes place in the 1500’s during the Spanish Conquest. A young woman who grew up in Spain escapes to the New World to stop a wicked Spanish prince from waging a brutal slaughter of native people. Once there, she discovers it is her true homeland, and realizes that she possesses extraordinary powers as the chosen warrior of her tribe.
