Markosia Spotlight On: Also Known As

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 Also Known As.

Imagine 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?

Martin Simmonds, artist on Black Crown’s “Punks Not Dead”

“An 80-page extravaganza from Jon and Grant that marks some of their best work so far with the added bonus of a creative team in Darren and Rob with all of them surfing the same wavelength. Like binge watching Quantum Leap.”

Markosia Spotlight On: Harker: The Graphic Novel Sequel to ‘Dracula’

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 Harker: The Graphic Novel Sequel to ‘Dracula’.

Although his body is destroyed, Dracula’s dark spirit survives, and only his last remaining “Bride of Dracula,” the Countess Dracule can avenge and save him – as she arrives in London to take brutal vengeance against the Hunters and their families.

With un-living allies including the late Renfield beside her, the Countess is ready for war. But her opposition is fragmented, with Seward in love again, yet addicted to morphine; Arthur distracted by visions of his dead love Lucy Westenra on a London street; Van Helsing haunted bu memories of his son; Mina finding herself aline with Dracula in her dreams – and Jonathan visitied by the ghost of Quincey Morris, warning him of dangers yet to come.

As the devious plans of the Vampire Countess and her allies come to pass, Harker and his friends must find strength to fight back from the brink of despair, taking on a quest that forces them through a variety of familiar locations including Purfleet, Piccadilly, Whitby, Munich, and ending with fire and blood on the Borgo Pass, the very place that Bram Stoker’s novel began.

Updated and re-released to celebrate the anniversary of the debut of Dracula in 1897, Harker is written by British writer Tony Lee (Doctor Who, Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Spider-Man) and drawn/coloured by the acclaimed South African art team of Neil Van Antwerpen and Peter-David Douglas (Starship Troopers), this original graphic novel is a faithful and ‘in canon’ return for the original characters, set six months on from the Count’s grizzly death, and six months before the birth of Jonathan and Mina’s son, Quincey.

And for Vampire afficionados it has three introductions – one from noted Sherlock Holmes and Vampire scholar Leslie S. Klinger, author of The New Annotated Dracula, and two more from Ian Holt and Bram Stoker’s Great-Grand Nephew Dacré Stoker, authors of the official Dracula sequel, Dracula: The Un-Dead, as well as never seen before articles on both the Vampire and Bram Stoker by award winning and acclaimed Dracula historians Elizabeth Miller and Alexander Galant.
