Imagine a country that was closed to the outside world for centuries? This is how life was in Japan 160 years ago.

Fact and fiction are combined in this story of how passionate ambition sparked the end of an empire.

Markosia Spotlight On: The Shadow of a Terrible Thing

Each 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 The Shadow of a Terrible Thing.

The Second World War had ended. Humanity was at its lowest, recovering from the death and destruction of millions of people and their homelands.

We were weak and vulnerable.

It was at this time that the Aliens decided to invade. They were advanced and all-conquering Aliens, in search of raw materials, resources for their own planet. Earth was that planet and it needed to be harvested and then destroyed before it became a powerful enemy. And it was now ripe for invasion.

Only the Humanity Department of Resources stood in their menacing way, and in the way of the total annihilation of our beloved planet Earth.

Hollow Girl – Vol 6: Little Sister – OUT NOW!

“I have to admit, that’s when I got a little obsessed.”

There’s a girl in a mask killing bad guys, but it’s not Katherine Harlow. She’s disappeared and a less experienced but enthusiastic wannabe has sidled in to take her place. You can bet that when Kat returns to reclaim Hollow Girl’s mask, there’s going to be a reckoning, and not just with her ‘Little Sister’. Because Detective Collins has crossed a line, leading to an inevitable and bloody final showdown.

By Luke Cooper, the creator of A Glimpse of Hell and Figments, and artist behind Wolf Country and the True Believers Comic Award winning GoodCopBadCop.

“Safe to say this is a mature title but with Luke’s pacing, his scene development by mixing up those panel layouts and his ability to hammer home some impressive action sequences … the whole book has a flow to it and with that you get swept along in every scene that unfolds. A harsh, brutal but rewarding read that makes you want to see more of Luke’s work.” – COMICHAUS

Hollow Girl – Vol 6: Little Sister is out now and available to order from the links below!

Markosia Spotlight On: Children Of Saigo

Each 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 Children Of Saigo.

Kagoshima, Japan 1877. Before leading his clan against the the Empire and certain death, Saig Takamori, Japan’s last great Samurai, pulled aside a young soldier named Koji Iwanaga and gave him an impossible order: Koji was to flee the country, escape to America and keep the tenets of Bushido alive.

Koji obeyed, and, to this day, his descendants live under the code of the Samurai — sort of.

Meet the Iwanagas: Ben, Shiro, Zoe and Teron. Four siblings born and raised in Chicago, trained in sword fighting, and about one sit-down dinner away from killing each other. But when Tomoe Yamada, a Yakuza mob princess, arrives to collect their heads as trophies, the dysfunctional brood must put aside their differences to defeat Tomoe and her army of assassins.

Cue the gunplay and swordfights.

Saving Manno – OUT NOW!

An inspiring and uplifting memoir about one small-town teacher’s eye-opening travels around the world and his relentless efforts to rescue a chimp in danger.

As a child, Spencer Sekyer’s world was a simple one. He grew up in a small town, where many of his days were spent pursuing his dream of becoming a professional athlete. But when his athletic career ended, he found himself seeking new goals.

Spencer returned to school and became a teacher. Realizing he still had much to learn about the world, Spencer set out to explore its most dangerous areas. He travelled to Sierra Leone to volunteer in a local school, followed by trips to Afghanistan. Each time, Spencer returned home a little wiser, a little more emotionally mature, and a little more ready to give back to a world that had given him so much.

In Duhok, Kurdistan, Spencer’s journey took a new turn. After stumbling into a local zoo, Spencer formed an unlikely bond with Manno, a young chimpanzee who had been kidnapped from his family in central Africa and sold into captivity. Determined to get Manno back to his home, Spencer began to investigate the shadowy, dangerous world of global animal trafficking. Facing resistance at every turn, and with ISIS closing in on Duhok, Spencer finally set in motion an international effort to get his friend to safety, before it was too late. Bursting with compassion, inspiration, and courage, Saving Manno is a testament to the fact that every one of us has the power to change lives and make the world a better place.

Written by Spencer Sekyer and illustrated by Gayashan Elpiyita, Saving Manno is out now in hardback and available to order from the links below, with a paperback edition to follow in May.
