Red 5 Comics and Simon & Schuster will publish Creator Quentin Lee’s first AAPI science fiction adventure comic book Mystery Brothers, to be available wherever books are sold on April 9, 2024.

Set in New York, Mystery Brothers is an exciting science fiction universe about two Chinese American 13-year-old half-brothers – one of whom may or may not be completely human – battling to save their parents and protect humanity from a robot domination future. 

The publishing deal was previously negotiated by Red 5 Comics’ Scott Chitwood and Margin Films’ Quentin Lee. Red 5 Comics has acquired global publishing rights while Margin Films retains all media ownership to the property.

The comic book is a first collaboration between creator Quentin Lee and Argentinian based artist Elis Zill (IG @eliszill). Quentin wrote the comic while Elis drew. Elis Zill is represented by Argentina’s Altercomics Studio.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Red 5 Comics on my second comic book and I’ve been enjoying working with the uber talented Elis Zill as the co-creator,” said Quentin Lee. “Elis also drew my first children’s picture book Pumpkin Head Lost His Head which is now available on or via”
