Latino Comics Expo fundraiser: EL MUERTO screening on August 13, 2017

The Latino Comics Expo has partnered with The Frida Cinema in Santa Ana, CA for a special screening of the cult film EL MUERTO



Based on the comic book by Javier Hernandez, EL MUERTO tells the tale of Diego de La Muerte, a young man killed and resurrected by the Aztec god of death on the Day of the Dead, tasked against his will with performing an evil act.

The film stars Wilmer Valderrama, Angie Cepeda, Joel David Moore, Tony Plana, Maria Conchita Alonso and Michael Parks.


The screening takes place Sunday, August 13 at The Frida Cinema, Orange County's premiere arthouse cinema showcasing independent, foreign & classic films. Following the film will be a Q&A with screenwriter/director Brian Cox and El Muerto creator Javier Hernandez.

All attendees of the screening will receive a free commemorative color print created by Javier Hernandez, plus there will be raffles for rare El Muerto comics, prints and even original artwork.




The fundraiser will help raise money for the Latino Comics Expo, the nation's premiere convention dedicated to showcasing Latino comic creators, writers and artists, as well as others working in related popular arts. This year's Expo will once again be held on November 11 & 12 at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA.
