Kompany X has announced its newest title Johnny Delgado is Dead (published by Top cow), will be making its debut at the San Diego Comic-Con. While set in the modern day, the story is loosely based on Pancho Villa and Zorro.
“As a proud member of the Latino community, it was a thrill to write something that honors those roots but at its core is just a great and classic story told through a visually stunning medium,” says Michel Olmos (son of the legendary Edward J. Olmos). Mincheff and artist Chris Moreno are all of Latino descent, which contributes to the authenticity of the story.
Take the jump for a sneak peek at the first issue arriving in September.

JOHNNY DELGADO IS DEAD centers on two childhood friends who are bound by the code of brotherhood, loyalty…and fate. Closer than brothers, one is destined to die and the other to secure justice as a tale of corruption and murder along the U.S./Mexican border unfolds.
