Graphic novels

Two of those graphic novels are Bronx Age Triple Threat and La Mala Noche, a pair of graphic novels that take a darker approach to super-powered beings. Triple Threat is a deals with a triptych of superhero stories told across several generations. The stories are intended to introduce readers to a fictionalized history of the Bronx replete with heroic, yet tormented masked crime fighters. The trio of tales posit the premise that superheroes actually existed in the Bronx’s past, and “reintroduces” the adventures of The Brawler from the early 1930s. Another hero whose exploits are covered is Brother BX, who hails from the turbulent 1970s during the Bronx’s gang era. Then — rounding out the series — is the modern day vigilante known only as BX.
