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?

Where's Gretel?

Gretel and Hansel have returned
to live with their father. It has
been a year since he abandoned
them in the Guatemalan jungle.
Children are resilient, but trauma
is very hard to forget.

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

Coming Spring 2021.
