Don’t worry this isn’t the next installment of Captain America. Kompany X is teaming up with Chamber Six to create Johnny Delgado is Dead: The Ballad. The first issue will be available at Comic-Con International on July 26, 2007.
According to Kompany X, JOHNNY DELGADO IS DEAD: THE BALLAD centers on two childhood friends who are bound by the code of brotherhood, loyalty… and fate. Closer than brothers, one is destined to be murdered, and one is destined for a legendary revenge.
“I have always been very drawn to the classic myths of the Latino communities. For many generations, the myths and legends of the Latino people have been told and retold in corridos, songs that kept alive their culture and their heroes.” Says John Leekley, “It seems that in every era, there were those who were ‘chosen’… heroes who rose up and defended the rights of the innocent and brought justice to the guilty. I have always been drawn to these ballads. I was introduced to them by a friend of mine, Edward James Olmos, years ago. Now I am working with Eddie’s son, Michael, to bring to life a new legend…JOHNNY DELGADO IS DEAD: THE BALLAD.”
Johnny Delgado is Dead: The Ballad will be distributed by Silent Devil.
