THE BRONX -

A comic book artist is helping to raise money for victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez is the creator of La Borinqueña, a Puerto Rican superhero with mystical powers that allow her to control storms.

Rodriguez's work is on display at the Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education in the Bronx.

He hopes to sell large prints of La Borinqueña and says all proceeds from the sale of the prints will go to benefit hurricane relief efforts.
