Markosia Monday Spotlight On: Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus

covers_new.inddEach week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue. This week it’s the turn of Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus.

Welcome back to a world where the rich can afford the best in super hero protection, but the poor have to get by with the heroic equivalent of third party, fire and theft. The ‘Lone Knight’ returns from the pages of Hero: 9 to 5, but how will The Loner and the finest men and women that publicly funded super hero protection can supply cope when a mysterious figure leaves a trail of unconnected corpses in his wake?

How will a young hero deal with the loss of his mentor? And, more importantly, how will Thunder Woman get her groceries when she runs into Lash Lady at the store? In a world where being a super hero is just another job, what happens when there’s nobody left alive to pay the bill? Quietus ‚ some men just want to watch the world die.

With an introduction by BAFTA Award nominated writer, Mike Carey!

Markosia Monday Spotlight On: White Knuckle

covers_new.inddEach week we’ll be turning the spotlight on one of the many quality graphic novels from our extensive back catalogue. This week it’s the turn of White Knuckle.

Forty years ago, Seth Rigal was a man to be feared – a serial strangler with a string of victims. Now nearly seventy and tormented by a lifetime of monstrous violence, Rigal lives on the verge of poverty and quietly waits for the death he knows he deserves.

Tortured and confused, still tormented by the drives that made him a killer in his youth, Rigal finds himself almost unconsciously stalking the daughter of his final victim – only to have his precious anonymity snatched from him when he accidentally saves her son’s life. Seth Rigal, formerly known as the Gripper, just became a local celebrity.

The bodies won’t stay buried any longer. White Knuckle is a complex and intense psychological thriller, distorting the ever-popular “retired gunslinger” motif into a rain-slick urban fantasy of murderous men and the needs that drive them.

Also Known As – OUT NOW

covers_new.inddImagine losing the one you love, only to find that everything you believed about them was a lie. That’s what happens to Cavalry Officer Lucas Wilson, as he watches his wife Elizabeth murdered before his very eyes, just moments before he’s hanged by his corrupt commanding officer Nathaniel Monroe.

Offered a chance to redeem his broken soul by the Reaper Jemma, Lucas is recruited by Charon the Ferryman, otheriwse known as Death to reap souls for him, on the condition that once he’s finished, Lucas can join his wife in Heaven. And for a hundred years, Lucas does this – working in a race against time to gather souls for Heaven before Charon’s ancient enemy Cerberus and her demonic Rogues can drag them to Hell.

However, a century later, Lucas finds himself facing his long-dead wife, now reincarnated into a new body – Faith Jones. Realising that everything they’ve been told is a fallacy, Lucas and Jemma go against their orders, saving Faith and starting a journey to learn the real story behind Charon and Cerberus, one that not only reveals the truth about them, but more importantly the truth as to where the souls really go when they’re claimed.

Hunted by Charon’s psychotic enforcer Thade and the reanimated Nathaniel Monroe, Lucas, Jemma and Faith must place their lives in the hands of long believed dead allies, chivalrous knights and traitorous friends as they try to find a way to not only stop Charon and Cerberus, but to save every soul ever taken by them.

But at what cost?
