Latinx Comic Writer Eric Esquivel Receives Death Threats Ahead of San Diego Comic-Con and Uses it to Spotlight Lantix Creators

Latinx comic writer Eric Esquivel woke up to a death threat on Wednesday that stated “We’re not sending I.C.E. to Comic Con, we’re sending exterminators.”

Esquivel is one of a handful of creators who will be relaunching DC‘s Vertigo imprint. Along with creator Ramon Villalobos the two will be releasing Border Town in September, the first new series to be launched as part of the new direction for the comic line.

The description of the series is below.

When a crack in the border between worlds releases an army of monsters from Mexican folklore into the small town of Devil’s Fork, Arizona, the residents blame the ensuing weirdness—the shared nightmares, the otherworldly radio transmissions, the mysterious goat mutilations—on “God-dang illegals.” With racial tensions supernaturally charged, it’s up to new kid in town Frank Dominguez and a motley crew of high school misfits to discover what’s REALLY going on.

While we could go on about the toxic elements that lie within the comic community and in society as a whole (Esquivel’s Tweet is full of them in responses), we’re taking Esquivel’s lead to use this opportunity to promote Latinx creators.

If we’ve missed any we apologize and please add more in the comments!
