Fresh from his hit stage show Latin History for Morons, actor/comedian John Leguizamo announced through Seed&Spark.com on Twitter that he is launching a new crowdfunding campaign for his creator-owned project PhenomX.
"I grew up loving comic books… but there were no latin people. What happened? We existed! Being Latin IS a superpower, y'all!"

While Leguizamo has written before in Ghetto Klown, an adaptation of his one-man Broadway show, this completely new and original project will be crowdfunded on Seed&Spark.com, which will be their first comic book campaign. As most comics are a collective effort, he will be teaming up with comic veterans like Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, Chris Batista, Jim Muñiz, Jose Marzan, Juan Fernandez, Emilio Lopez, and Dexter Vines to tell the story of Max Gomez aka PhenomX, an ex-con looking to use his new powers for the community he’s from.
