Ablaze Launches "Gung-Ho" in December 2019 Solicitations

New comic publisher Ablaze, that is suddenly not publishing public domain Conan comics as The Cimmerian anymore, or at least not through Diamond, announced that the company will be publishing Gung-Ho by Benjamin von Eckartsberg and Thomas von Kummant in December.

Gung-Ho is the first title in part of an overall larger deal with leading French publisher Editions Paquet. Ablaze will also be bringing other select titles from Paquet to English readers worldwide.

Gung-Ho takes place in the near future, when the "White Plague" has almost completely decimated humanity, and civilization is only a sweet memory. The world as a whole has become a danger zone, where survival is only possible within towns or fortified villages. Enter orphaned brothers Zach and Archer Goodwoody, troublemaking teens who have just arrived at Fort Apache, and about to learn the hard rules of integration into the colony. Outside the walls lies a hostile and deadly environment, but inside is also a dangerous place, as the boys are about to find out.

Here's the solicitation, as well as further issues of Mirka Andolfo's Unsacred, Charlie Adlard's Vampire State Building and an original graphic novel by Clayton JuniorWild Thing Or: My Life as a Wolf .

Wild Thing Or: My Life as a Wolf tells the story of an affectionate and inquisitive Labrador named Silver, who grew up on a farm with his master and his hundreds of sheep. But Silver dreams of adventure, bored by the monotony?of his farm life… What is beyond the hills? Where does the river flow? Which animals live in the forest? So many questions without answers… One night, Silver meets a trio of hungry wolves. Attracted by their unhindered life, as enticing as it is dangerous, he decides to follow them, and learns to live the wild life with the pack, which is rough and exhilarating at the same time. Along the way he discovers love, and the ravages of human civilization that are reducing the living space of animals, threatening their very existence.
