Zorro has been appearing in comics since the 1940s, with reprints and original stories printed worldwide. With stories published by a variety of the best names in comics, including Dell Comics, Western Publishing, Le Journal de Mickey, Topps, Dynamite, and most recently, American Mythology, Zorro's amazing exploits have inspired readers for generations, and will continue to do so for years to come.
American Mythology is a new comic book publisher with an impressive early line-up of titles, including fresh, new titles, and comics based on beloved licenses, including The Three Stooges, Stargate: Atlantis, and the Pink Panther. Some of American Mythology’s contributors include Eisner-award winning artist Mark Wheatley, J.C. Vaughn, Andrew Mangum, and James Kuhoric.
American Mythology’s classic Zorro adult horror series pick up after the end of the events of Curse of Capistrano, and sees the masked hero face off against undead conquistadors, evil brujos, and other supernatural threats. Two four-issue (20 pgs each) series will run, Swords of Hell (first issue released October 2018), and Sacrilege (projected release in February 2019). American Mythology is also publishing a series of vintage Zorro comic reprints from Western Publishing’s 1960s-70s French editions published as Zorro: Legendary Adventures. Book 1 is planned for late 2018, with Book 2 following in March 2019. Each series also features several special artist variant covers for each issue.
