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 August that means Starpuck and Strangers Origins: Starlock1. Flash Gordon artist Eduardo Garcia is drawing The Secret Origin Of Starpuck, with Gabriel Mayorga on Jaleb's Quest and The Dastardly Menace Of Doctor Morbyde, all written by Jean-Marc Lofficier and a cover by Stan Sakai. Take a look.
