I am writing this post to address the events that began to unfold a couple of days ago on twitter. What started as an expression of freedom of speech quickly became ugly, as one of our creators chose to cross a line. Continue reading “Update”
This is the official adaptation of Azteq vs The Prowler – an upcoming feature length film that revives the Lucha Libre genre and combines it with a slasher! Filming is underway in Dallas, so be sure to check in soon as wrestling stars Aski The Mayan Warrior, Mike Knox, Michael Tarver and more lend their talents to this awesome project!
A very limited amount of print copies are available, signed by writer Roberto Mercado – so be sure to get yours now!
***Update: If you are reading this, you may not now about our latest kickstarter project, which you can view here – Macbeth: The Red King***Late last year, we took a big leap and launched our first crowdfunding campaign via kickstarter. It was perhaps the most stressful experience I’ve had in the 2 years that Lucha Comics has existed, but it was definitely one of the most satisfying as well. From a slow start, to getting into Bleeding Cool, and (just barely) crossing the finish line, I figured I was long overdue in reflecting on what I believe was our largest accomplishment to date.

This gripping “Reality-Based Fantasy” is best described as Lord of the Rings meets The Devil’s Advocate. It is where history, as well as the future of humanity, are examined under Islamic and Biblical light, in an effort to comprehend the nature of the Devil, his minions, and plans for the demise of Humanity.
What can we do to ensure that Humanity not only survives, but wins and thrives?
Marwan ElNashar brings his Action/Fantasy tale to Lucha Comics. Incredible artwork and an ageless story bring together a team of interfaith heroes that must put aside their differences because they are the only ones that can save our planet.
Volume 1: The Devil’s War
A Pharonic Queen that helped Moses during the Exodus, A Rabbi that aided Jesus, and a Roman commander that saves Mohamed, find a way to unite in the spiritual dimension of Jannahim. They must set aside their differences to prevent Satan from recruiting the Third Horsemen of the Apocalypse and edging ever closer to completing his army of darkness!
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in a concealed realm.”
When you’re lost with no way home, every step could be your last. This is a lesson our two mysterious protagonists learned quickly, as they make their way through unfamiliar and unforgiving territory.
Jory Abbott was inspired to tell this story through the artwork of Jeff Harvey as he felt that he was at a bit of a low point, a darker place. This led to an origin story that might be a bit darker than what most Comic Book readers are used to. Jory and Jeff have really poured themselves into this book, with characters that are a reflection of reality. There will always be things that go bump in the night. The genesis project created two people who could bump a little bit harder.

The story of Lucha Comics, and our kickstarter for The Kursk made it to bleeding cool! Check it out here…
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, a den for everything comic book related, and of course that meant that I fell in love with everything comic book related. I remember watching Batman and X-Men cartoons on TV, sprinkled in between classics like GI Joe, Transformers, and Thundercats. As time has gone by our culture along with the quality and quantity of product has grown to extraordinary proportions, and I’m more than grateful to have a small part in all of this growth. I absolutely love indie creators and the passion they show for their product; it’s unmatched in any other industry and it pumps me up to see others so passionate about their comics. Often times indie creators are overlooked and under appreciated in the comic industry, so it’s my mission to shine a light on them and get their message out to the public.
I do reviews and opinion pieces for Comicbooked.com along with a team of really wonderful and really dedicated folks that share my love for everything comic related. We all have love for comics and comic creators like Lucha Comics and other indies. We love doing reviews and we love shining light on Kickstarter projects like The Kursk.
We believe in indie creators and we want more than anything for them to succeed so we attempt to shine a light on their projects for readers to consider and hopefully back. I encourage everyone to help and be a part of something great while assisting someone with their passion and making something they love come to life. There is no greater feeling than helping people and the best part is that in the end backers get great books to read, and know they were a part of the creation.

The graphic novel adaptation of Sasha Janowicz’ award winning play concludes! The K-141 Kursk, Oscar-II class nuclear-powered cruise missile submarine and pride of a rejuvenated Russian Navy, has sunk in the Barents Sea. A frantic rescue effort has failed. 118 Brave souls give their lives to the sea. Now, all that is left is to bury the dead and mend the living.
The Kursk #1 was praised for art by Andrea Montano and her fearless expression in this macabre political thriller. The Kursk #2 brought us closer to the events that happened on August 12th, 2000. The Kursk #3 showed us the frantic effort to rescue Russia’s brave sailors. Now, all that is left is sorrow.
In 2010, Australia nominated Sasha Janowicz’s play for the Helpmann Awards for Performing Arts. Sasha won the 2007 Bell Award for Best New Play, and three Matilda Awards – Best New Australian Play, Best Direction, and Best Independent Production.
