For an aspiring artist, joining the ranks of Marvel is like the holy grail of sorts: Reaching your highest comic art calling. After years of plying his trade putting pencil to paper, Dave Wilkins did just that.
Dave Wilkins is raising the dead in his new graphic novel El Zombo!!
A super-pumped steroid-zombie-Mexican-demon-fighting wrestler called El Zombo will be fighting against the forces of evil in an over-the-top story featuring beautiful character design, vibrant color work and, of course, Dave’s must-see signature style. The book will also feature multiple illustrations from other super talented artists such as Luke Mancini, Brett Parson, Slixart-featured artist Loopy Dave and many more.
El Zombo, originally created in 2004 and published by Dark Horse Comics, was the first time we saw our hero fight evil. The adventure lasted three issues and was well received by the readers.
We don’t have much more information at the moment, but we know the first edition will be sold at Comic-Con san Diego at Dave Wilkins's booth! This is a must see for anyone attending the event this year! We will try our best to obtain one of these copies to report back on the book!
