EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE TITLE ATTACK AT ACAPULCO: A BLACK DEMON TALE AVAILABLE AT NEW YORK COMIC-CON
SCOUT COMICS AND MUCHO MAS MEDIA PARTNER TO LAUNC
(Los Angeles, CA/New York, NY) FRIDAY OCT 8TH 2021 – SCOUT Comics, one of the fastest growing independent comic labels in the US, is partnering with the Los Angeles-based independent production company Mucho Mas Media to launch LatinX brand Chispa Comics. Their new imprint, helmed by veteran comics creators David Bowles (Clockwork Curandera), Hector Rodriguez III (El Peso Hero), and Javier Chapa (Blue Miracle), was created to explore within the global LatinX community and communities of color to find diverse creators and curate stories that are culturally relevant across various mediums of entertainment.
“We’re so grateful to be working with SCOUT and have always been huge fans of their mission, and are eager to help create and publish more comics that support and celebrate the voices and stories of the LatinX community,” said Javier Chapa, the imprint’s CEO.
Scout’s President, James Haick III, said of the partnership,“We here at Scout couldn’t be more excited about partnering with the amazing team at Mucho Mas Media. We can’t wait to share the exciting plans and titles we have coming out for Chispa. This is the beginning of something very special.”
Their first release, ATTACK AT ACAPULCO: A BLACK DEMON TALE, puts readers in the middle of the busiest week of the season when things on the Pacific coast of Mexico are not as they seem. Written by Sebastian Martinez-Kadlecik (Eisner-nominated Quince) and illustrated by Bruno Oliveira (Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool), ATTACK AT ACAPULCO is rooted in the Mexican myth of the Black Demon, an ancient megalodon that lurks the seas, guarding nature at the behest of Tlaloc, the supreme Aztec god of rain, earthly fertility, and water.
Along with ATTACK AT ACAPULCO, Chispa will be releasing The Fantastic Flame, a new comic series written by Alex Segura (Star Wars—Poe Dameron: Free Fall) and Chantel Acevedo (The Distant Marvels) and illustrated by Richard Ortiz (DC Bombshells, Southside Serpents). Other titles include Thanks! -Romina by Giulie Speziani, limited series Dial “F” for Foodie by Aaron Duran, Mashbone & Grifty by Oscar Garza and Pablo Esquivel, and Chispa’s own horror anthology, Catrina’s Caravan, edited by David Bowles and Hector Rodriguez III.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/exclusive-premiere-title-attack-at-acapulco-a-black-demon-tale-available-at-new-york-comic-con/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ScoutComics-600x261.pnghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ScoutComics-150x65.pngNews
