Mad Cave Announces New Series from 2019 Talent Search Winners
Diego Gomez is tired of the drugs and violence that surround him. He wants nothing more than to escape west and leave the neon lights of 1980s Miami behind him. With the help of three friends, Diego hatches a plan to rob the most dangerous gang in the city, Los Marielitos. Filled with Latin-American influences, Dry Foot is a coming-of age-tale that deals with family, friendship, trust, and adversity.
Many would kill to live in the Magic City. Others would die to leave it behind.
Story by Jarred Lujan, with art by Orlando Caicedo (Pound) and colors by Warnia Sahadewa (Shades of Magic). Letterer Justin Birch (RV9) rounds out the creative team.
Mad Cave’s own Chris Fernandez has this to say:
“I am so excited to see this mini-series come to life, not only because it takes place in the city I call home, but also because of my Latin heritage. This is a story that is relatable in more ways than one and so are the characters in it. Dry Foot will have you laughing at the characters as they interact, cheering for them to succeed, and crying when it’s all over and I hope you enjoy every second of it!”
“Dry Foot was a uniquely emotional experience for me. A lot of me, and my own group of teenage troublemaker friends, made its way into the script. I’m very proud of this book, of the incredible art team that brought it to life, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
Artist Orlando adds:
“I’ve been having a blast working on Dry Foot! It’s been a joy and an honor to be able to depict Latin characters and culture on the comic page, not to mention the fun I’m having getting to draw a story set in the 1980s. Plus, we have a great team working on the book and everyone is bringing their A-game which shows in the finished product. Can’t wait to share this book with the world.”
Dry Foot #1 will hit store shelves in June 2020.
