About the Author

Elvira Carrizal-Dukes is the writer for DUKEScomics. She was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. She is currently a doctoral student in the Rhetoric and Composition program at The University of Texas at El Paso where she teaches Chicana/o Cinema and Chicana/o Theatre. Elvira earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in Film from Columbia University in the City of New York. She earned her bachelors degree in Journalism and Chicano Studies with a minor in Theatre Arts from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
Through comic books Elvira reaches visual readers. She wrote her first graphic novel called A.W.O.L. featuring a Latina soldier on unauthorized leave from the military. She is searching for her kidnapped brother in the El Paso, Texas, Mexico/US border region. El Paso is home to Fort Bliss, one of the largest military installations in the U.S. Much of Elvira's work is centered around her hometown and the socio/cultural/historical contexts of the El Paso, Texas, and Juarez, Mexico, borderland.
Elvira is also the author of Dukes of Chuco (DUKEScomics, 2018), as well as a play Father's Shadow / Sombra del Padre (Dramatic Publishing, 2001). Elvira is a filmmaker and the writer, director, and producer of Mariposa (2006) and The Weeping Pimp (2015).
