Another El Paso artist, getting national attention!

El Paso comic book author, publisher and historian Jaime Portillo will be featured in an upcoming segment of "American Lawmen" on the American Heroes Channel. (Formerly the Military Channel.)

Jaime, and other local historians, will appear in the episode "Dallas Stoudenmire: The Hero Of El Paso". Stoudenmire was an early El Paso lawman, most widely known for his role in the infamous "4 dead in 5" gunfight.

Portillo's graphic novel "Hell Paso" was made into a video game last year and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy commissioned him to write "Escape From Alcatraz: Back From The Dead", which was released earlier this month.

The "American Lawmen" episode premieres Wednesday, March 16th, at 8:00pm El Paso time. The American Heroes channel is Time Warner channel 140, Direct TV channel 287 and/or Dish channel 195.
