Top Cow has announced writer Henry Barajas and artist Rahmat M. Handoko are teaming for Helm Greycastle, a new Latinx fantasy series that arrives in April.
“What if the Aztec Empire defeated the Spanish Conquistadors? As a Mexican-American who has had no formal education on my indigenous background, writing this book has been very empowering,” said Barajas in a press release from Top Cow. “I’m excited to share some Mesoamerican history while mixing it with swords and sorcery.”
In Helm Greycastle, the last dragon prince has been abducted—kept prisoner by an unknown threat: AZTEC MEXICA! Helm Greycastle and his outsider comrades are here to save the prince—but are recruited by a resistance plotting to overthrow Montezuma. Will Greycastle help save the people of MEXICA…or rescue the dragon prince and flee?
Helm Graycastle #1 arrives on April 26, 2021.
