Sean Murphy has talked about his love for Zorro and wanting to write and draw a Zorro comic book for some time. The rights have been licensed from the likes of Topps and Dynamite Entertainment over the years, but it seems that Sean Murphy had decided to do that bit himself as well. Sean Murphy posted to Instagram, saying ” I’m starting concept art for my next book, temporarily called “Zorro: Man of the Dead” I licensed the rights myself, so it’ll be publishing under my own new label. More details to follow!” As well as plenty of that concept art, including surprising vehicles, suggesting this may be set in the modern day.
J Scott Campbell replied saying “Nice!! I know this has been something you wanted to do for a while. Glad to see it happening” Nick Derington added “Glorious. Tornado. What a mighty steed. Can’t wait.” We await news of Sean Murphy’s imprint, as well as whatever is to be announced in next week’s Batman: Beyond The White Knight #8…
