They are arguably the greatest tag team in modern day lucha libre. Brothers, Penta Zero M and Rey Fenix, were orphaned at birth and raised by missionaries who traveled the world teaching them about a multitude of cultures… and each one’s fighting style. Now, as adults, simply being one of the greatest luchadores isn’t enough for Penta! With the help of his brother, he has found the location of an ancient power that he believes can make them the greatest warriors the world has ever known!
Lucha Brothers #1, which will be released on September 8th, can be preordered right now at TheLuchaverse.com, and will soon be coming to local comic shops.
