El MUERTO

Updated: Jul 20, 2020


El Muerto: The Aztec Zombie was the brain child of artist and creator, Javier Hernandez, and published through imprint Los Comex since 1998. Wanting to give life to a superhero that embodied the passion and mythology of The Mexican American culture, Javier went to work pencilling his protagonist. Juan Diego De La Muerte. A 21 year old Mexican American who was abducted and sacrificed by Mictlantecuhtli and Mictēcacihuātl the Aztec gods of death. Only to return a year later a super powered, skull faced, Mariachi suit wearing chingon! This series has been super empowering to young nerds of color who read it, and is essential in helping to pave the way for POC superheroes in american pop culture. #elmuertotheazteczombie #elmuerto #pocsuperheroes #superheroesofcolor #mutantorminority
