AWA Studios Reveals Primos by Al Madrigal and Carlo Barberi
AWA (Artists, Writers, Artisans) has announced the All-New Latinx Superhero Comic Series, Primos which will debut February 2, 2022 in both Spanish and English (solicitation date: November 19, 2021). From the mind of renowned Latinx comedian, actor, writer and producer Al Madrigal and artist Carlo Barberi, Primos brings together three distant cousins, bound by their ancient spacefaring Mayan lineage to the historical King Janaab, with a profoundly special purpose: to save the world as we know it. They are the “Primos,” and they are Earth’s last hope.
The ultimate Latinx heroes for the 21st Century are here! Centuries ago, two Mayan brothers constructed a spacecraft that sent them hurtling into outer space. Returned to Earth only to find their culture and civilization destroyed, one of the brothers vows revenge and seeks to decimate the planet with intergalactic technology gathered on his travels. To prevent this, his sibling creates a contingency plan that activates the world’s protectors – three descendants of their own family who have been granted great power. Now, the fate of the universe lies in the hands of three cousins scattered throughout Central and North America who have never even met.
