“ZORRO KILLS #1,” a new comic series, is set to be released in 2024. The first issue, “GOD’S CHILDREN ARE NOT FOR SALE,” features a version of Zorro that is more violent and distinctly Mexican compared to traditional depictions. The story focuses on Zorro fighting against child trafficking.
The comic’s art style is influenced by the realistic, pulp horror visuals seen in black and white Vampirella comics. The initial release will be a 24-page issue, and its success will determine the possibility of future issues.
In addition to the main story, the first issue includes a 6-page manga-style comic titled “PHUKET MAMA,” introducing a character from Phuket, Thailand.
The team behind “ZORRO KILLS #1” has approached various comic book companies and distributors for potential collaboration but is also prepared for an independent release. The comic aims to offer a fresh perspective on the iconic Zorro character and expand the range of stories in the comic book genre.
