John Leguizamo’s PhenomX #1 Features a Cover by Todd McFarlane
The highly anticipated creation, PhenomX is heading to comic shops this November from acclaimed actor, John Leguizamo. The first issue is an extra-length comic featuring cover art by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane.
McFarlane and Leguizamo first met on the set of the 1997 Spawn movie, where Leguizamo delivered a memorable performance as Spawn’s arch-enemy, The Clown. In 2018, the two creators re-connected at New York Comic Con and made the decision to put their heads together.
PhenomX centers around the character, Max Gomez, who was wrongfully imprisoned and is desperate to regain his freedom. Max agrees to become a subject in an underground government experiment.
When the trial gives him phenomenal shape-shifting abilities, Gomez learns his new “freedom” requires surviving a superpowered war fought on the streets of NYC.
Fans have been anticipating Leguizamo’s Latin superhero since a crowdfunding campaign was announced in 2019 for his creator-owned project PhenomX. The all-Latino creative team launching Leguizamo’s new hero includes artist Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez—author of the comic series La Boriqueña—as well as cover art by Jim Muñiz, José Marzán, Jr., and Juan Fernández.
PhenomX #1 will be available at comic book shops and digital platforms, including Amazon, Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play on Wednesday, November 3 (SRP $6.99):
