Martin Eden’s acclaimed “O Men” Return!

The O Men Book 5 - CoverAfter a six-year hiatus, O Men creator Martin Eden is bringing the series back to finally complete the story.

The O Men – an epic superhero soap opera – began in 1997 and was one of the most prominent UK small press comics of its time, earning itself an Eagle Award nomination, but after 35 issues, Martin put the series on hiatus in order to publish his Spandex series.

Recently, Martin has been collecting all of the previous O Men issues across four books.

Nearly 20 years after Martin launched the title, the final eight issues of The O Men will appear monthly on Comixology from February 2016, leading up to the print version of the final O Men collection in late 2016. (Martin tells us Book Four is due for digital release in November).

The final issues promise to wrap up all of the storylines and answer all of the series’ questions – including the real reason why the team is called The ‘O’ Men… Plus, there will be strong hints about Martin’s next epic project.

Martin will be appearing at the Thought Bubble convention on November 14-15 with a special black and white O Men Ashcan issue, which contains an all-new mini O Men issue.
