Vatican hitman, Japanese warriors and more in Paragon 8

Issue 8 of the indie comic anthology Paragon is just out featuring a complete 15 page adventure starring the time-travelling demon-hunting Japanese warrior Jikan, ending the current story arc written by The Legendary Shark and drawn by Davey Candlish.

Also in the issue is the second episode of Icarus Dangerous by Dirk Van Dom and Stephen Prestwood – Icarus didn’t plunge to his doom but was rescued and now finds himself trapped on an alien spaceship… and just who is Meriope?

James Corcoran takes over on art for G127 this issue as the action hots up in Rise of the Mekkosapiens, written by Locust of Death.

Finally, there’s the long awaited finale to Undertow – the Vatican hitman is determined to kill the goblin Messiah – but the underworld aren’t finished yet… This is the last chapter of a weird and wonderful tale by the regular team of The Emperor and Davey Candlish.

All wrapped up in a time warping Jikan cover by Chris Askham, it’s the biggest issue yet at 36 pages!

– All for only £3.50, available via paypal through, or for non-UK residents, through (from where you can also buy a PDF version for those who prefer to read on a tablet)
