Hector Cantu, Sara Woolley Gómez, Josh Trujillo & El Verde at the LCX 2016!

Meet the talent joining us this year at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA this August 6 & 7.

Hector Cantu is the writer and co-creator (along with artist Carlos Castellanos) of the nationally syndicated BALDO comic strip, launched from Universal Press Syndicate back in 2000. It's the first comic strip featuring a Latino family as the stars.

Sara Woolley Gómez is an award-winning illustrator and art instructor whose recent work, "Los Pirineos, the mostly true memoirs of Esperancita Gómez" chronicles the story of a young girl growing up in, then being exiled from, Colombia. The book was recognized by the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC).

Josh Trujillo is a writer, editor and publisher who's recent work includes two ADVENTURE TIME graphic novels from BOOM! STUDIOS. Other comics he's contributed to include Death Saves: Fallen Heroes of the Kitchen Table and Anything That Loves: Comics Beyond Gay and Straight. 

El Verde is both a web comic and theater play, chronicling the adventures of Mexican superhero El Verde. Written by Anthony Aguilar and directed by Alejandra Cisneros, El Verde delivers it's action comedy with political and cultural satire. There will be a reading of an El Verde play on Saturday at the Latino Comics Expo. Stay tuned for details.
