Helm Greycastle, a Latinx alternate history  about the Aztec civilization, is launching as a four issue mini-series from Image/Top Cow in April. Written by Henry Barajas (La Voz de M.A.Y.O.: Tata Rambo) it has art by Rahmat M. Handoko (Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Ultimate Spider-Man: Infinite Comic) and colorist Bryan Valenza (Witchblade). It’s a rocking sword and sandal epic set in a world where the Aztecs defeated the Spanish invasion of America.

The book, which was recently successfully launched on Kickstarter,  features some fierce alternative covers by David Lapham (Stray Bullets), Tony Parker (God of War), and Becky Cloonan (Immortal Wonder Woman), along with a bonus Latinx one-shot RPG (5E compatible) written by Tristan J. Tarwater (Rolled & Told) and showcasing art by Jen Vaughn (d20 Dames). You can see some of the alternate covers below AND a preview!

“What if the Aztec Empire defeated the Spanish Conquistadors? As a Mexican-American who has had no formal education on my indigenous background, writing this book has been very empowering,” said Barajas. “I’m excited to share some Mesoamerican history while mixing it with swords and sorcery.”

In Helm Greycastle, the last dragon prince has been abducted—kept prisoner by an unknown threat: AZTEC MEXICA! Helm Greycastle and his outsider comrades are here to save the prince—but are recruited by a resistance plotting to overthrow Montezuma. Will Greycastle help save the people of MEXICA…or rescue the dragon prince and flee?

“Working on Helm has been very challenging for me because this time I am not only a colorist but also a co-creator,” said Valenza. “One of my biggest achievements in 2020 is being able to be involved in this project.”

Handoko added: “I’m having a blast working on Helm Greycastle and bringing Aztec gods to life.”
