Top Cow has announced it will release La Mano del Destino by J. Gonzo in May 2021.
“When Gonzo told me he was doing this book I had no idea what to expect, it was a world I was completely unfamiliar with,” says Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “Then I read it, laughed, and fell in love with these colorful characters. I’m glad we picked this one up.”
La Mano del Destino tells the tale of a once-champion Luchador – who, after being betrayed by his friends and unmasked in the ring, agrees to a Faustian bargain with a mysterious promoter.
