A new graphic novel by Martin Hayes and Chris Askham – Abominable Glory – is a gut-ripping yarn of blood and bullets, monsters and madmen, and bravery beyond belief – and we have a sneak peek…
The Himalayas, 1943. When a plane carrying a spy with a head full of Axis war secrets goes missing above the Zemu Glacier, a group of elite British Commandos is dispatched to get him back. But who else is looking for him? And what else is prowling the icy wastes?
Abominable Glory is published by Markosia and will launch at the London Super Comic Con in the Excel Centre on Saturday 14th March, 2015.
Written by Martin Hayes, whose previous projects include the graphic novels Project Luna: 1947 and Aleister Crowley: Wandering the Waste, and with art by Chris Askham, who has illustrated for Siti’s Sisters, Zarjaz, and DogBreath, Abominable Glory is 80 pages of grey-scale monster mayhem.
Martin and Chris will be signing at the Markosia booth from 10-12 on the Saturday and Sunday of LSCC.
