This gripping “Reality-Based Fantasy” is best described as Lord of the Rings meets The Devil’s Advocate. It is where history, as well as the future of humanity, are examined under Islamic and Biblical light, in an effort to comprehend the nature of the Devil, his minions, and plans for the demise of Humanity.
What can we do to ensure that Humanity not only survives, but wins and thrives?
Marwan ElNashar brings his Action/Fantasy tale to Lucha Comics. Incredible artwork and an ageless story bring together a team of interfaith heroes that must put aside their differences because they are the only ones that can save our planet.
Volume 1: The Devil’s War
A Pharonic Queen that helped Moses during the Exodus, A Rabbi that aided Jesus, and a Roman commander that saves Mohamed, find a way to unite in the spiritual dimension of Jannahim. They must set aside their differences to prevent Satan from recruiting the Third Horsemen of the Apocalypse and edging ever closer to completing his army of darkness!
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in a concealed realm.”
Lucha Comics is thrilled to partner with MARZ publishing to bring this story to our readers. Expect it very soon on Google Play, Amazon Kindle, Comics+, and ComiXology!
Decades ago, millions around the world, and particularly in Mexico and Latin America, were thrilled by the exploits of the original masked superheroes: Luchadores. These masked Mexican wrestlers sold out arenas through Latin America, and stars like Blue Demon became cultural icons, transcending the sport of Lucha Libre (Mexican professional wrestling) to TV and Film. Their adventures soon carried over into another popular medium: comic books (or historietas as they are known in Mexico).
Comic books like the one below became cultural staples, and would have runs in the decades, that rival those of today’s most popular superheroes. It was not that long ago that Blue Demon was a bigger household name than Spider-Man in Latin America.
