Curse of El Cucuy Vol. 1: Print Edition
The Curse of El Cucuy is a young adult/horror comic based loosely on the myth (or is it?) of Cucuy-the cross cultural Latin Boogeyman--set in a border town in the US southwest, and was adapted from an award-winning spec screenplay. Created by screenwriter Craig Phillips, who is also a cartoonist, film blogger, and short story writer (with an MFA in creative writing), with the talents of New Mexico-based artist Turner Mark-Jacobs who is influenced by the work of Mike Mignola, the intent of the series is to elevate and center Latino stories and create cross-cultural understanding in these dark times. Future volumes of the series will add other writers and artists, and there will be a Spanish language version of the comic later in 2020. Spain-based cover artist Nache Ramos did the cover art. We aim to release future volumes of the series in subsequent years.
