The long-awaited Chimera Brigade series kicks off in the U.S. this December, attempting to answer the question: “Whatever happened to the European superhero?” Drawing on a wealth of cult and popular literatures from the late 19th century to just before World War II, The Chimera Brigade rewrites the fictional history of Euro-adventurers into a shared universe not unlike our own.

Comics in the Pipeline: World War X

November 30th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

When a team of scientists on the moon accidentally opens a long-buried alien tomb, similar ancient tombs activate all over the Earth, unleashing a vast destructive force. Is there any hope for humanity? Like Scott Glenn waking up half an hour into The Keep, the pandemonium also awakens a guardian who at various times throughout the ages–from the Roman era through medieval times–has led humanity to repel the creatures’ attacks. His name? Helios.

A series by Jerry Frissen, Peter Snejbjerg, and Delphine Rieu.
