We like to keep an eye on Jean-Marc Lofficier's Hexagon Comics USA line, European comics mostly written by Jean-Marc Lofficier, translated into English and distributed solely through his website, Amazon page or at conventions. Selling enough copies to make it more than worthwhile, as well as making certain comics available to a wider English-speaking audience. Right now that also means avoiding any kind of shutdown that doesn't include the postal service. Retailers can purchase Hexagon Comics at a 40% discount from distributor Ingram or from the publisher. And in November, that means Bronze Gladiator from Christophe Ouvrard.
7×10 squarebound trade paperback, 64 pages color. ISBN-13: 978-1-64932-069-8. US$19.95.
Story, Art & Cover by Christophe Ouvrard.
You saw his origins in STRANGERS #0, you followed his adventures alongside the STRANGERS; now discover the conclusion of his saga. The exploits of Prince Starko, a.k.a. the BRONZE GLADIATOR, have come to the attention to KAHEZAR, the usurper who murdered his father to steal the throne of the far off planet Arena.
The return of the legitimate heir was inevitable, but the final confrontation between Starko and Kahezar still has many surprises in store… This issue includes a bonus story about the Gladiator's very first adventure after his arrival on Earth.
