Paulette Jimenez and Josias Ocampo have been collecting since the 2000s. They established Bandito Comics in June 2021 using their personal collection. After minor success on the convention circuit, The Banditos opened up their first physical store in June 2023!
The Bandito Comics logo represents Paulette's and Josias' cultural heritage. The colors pay tribute to the Mexican flag, and the Bandito is a tribute to the Mexican-American community that they were raised in.
