Athena Voltaire Unearths High Adventure at Action Lab
Globetrotting aviatrix Athena Voltaire takes on Nazis, occult science, and mythical creatures against the backdrop of the 1930s. Now she’s bringing her knuckle-dusting style of pulp adventure to Action Lab Entertainment.
Athena Voltaire launched as part of the Modern Tales family of webcomics in 2002 and was nominated for a Best Digital Comic Eisner Award in 2005. The feature was included in St. Martin’s The Year’s Best Graphic Novels, Comics and Manga (2004 edition), and has subsequently garnered Manning and Harvey Award nominations, as well.
A re-release of the hardcover Athena Voltaire Compendium will mark the heroine’s Action Lab debut, followed by Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess, an all-new 3-issue mini-series. Additional planned releases include a one-shot special and a prose collection.
