J. Gonzo and Keith Rainville at the Latino Comics Expo San José

J. Gonzo, creator of the lucha-libre comic book LA MANO DEL DESTINO, will be joining us once again at the Latino Comics Expo. The former Senior Art Director for McFarlane Toys/Todd McFarlane Productions and Creative Director of an ad agency, Gonzo is currently in the middle of his six issue series featuring his once-champion Luchadore and his quest to seek retribution on his betrayers.

Keith Rainville, author and publisher (FROM PARTS UNKNOWN, ZOMBIE MEXICANO) has written extensively on masked wrestler pop culture and vintage Mexican monster media since 1995. He returns to the Expo with two exciting panels exploring the worlds of classic Mexican horror and superheroes in film and comics:

On Saturday, he'll be presenting his popular Heroes of Mexican Comics (with special guests Rafael Navarro and J. Gonzo) and on Sunday he'll debut a new presentation, Lost Monsters and Forgotten Horrors of Mexico. Details on all our panels will be posted here soon. 

The Latino Comics Expo San José will be held the weekend of October 11 & 12 at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on the campus of San José State University. The event runs on Saturday from 10am-6pm and on Sunday from 1pm-6pm. Admission to the Expo is free.

In addition to our two exhibit rooms featuring cartoonists, writers, illustrators, zine makers, book vendors and more, the Expo will feature 2 days of panels, presentations and children's workshops.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library is located at
150 E San Fernando St, San José, CA 95112.
