Dream Destination, a media company founded by John Gonzalez, make their Latino Comics Expo debut this October 11 & 12. Their comic book series, THE ELITES UNIT 52, is written by John and Carlos Gonzalez, illustrated by Julien Aguilera and edited by Michelle Gonzalez.
Cartoonist Javier Hernandez, creator of El Muerto, will be debuting two new books at the Expo, MORE COMICS and the LOS COMEX FELIZ NAVIDAD SPECIAL. In 2011, he co-founded the Latino Comics Expo with Bay Area patron of the arts, Ricardo Padilla.
Daniel Parada, creator of the comic series Zotz: Serpent and Shield, returns once again to the Latino Comics Expo.

Daniel is currently working on issue #3, and will have the first two books available at the Expo.
Tragic Hero Comics join us for their first Latino Comics Expo. Publisher Ray Zepeda is the writer of their flagship title, ANTI-HERO 113, which he describes as a "collection of stories featuring aberrant Heroes, Antiheroes, and Villains for a whole new generation!". Ray's collaborator on the book is artist Ryan Scales.
