New York Comic Con 2017: Statix Press Announces English Translation of Atlas & Axis!

Titan Comics and Statix Press have announced that creator Pau’s Prix Du FIBD Angoulême award-nominated comic – Atlas & Axis – is being translated for a whole new US audience, next January.

In the fantastical world of Pangea, all the animals talk and walk on two paws. Warriors Atlas and Axis are mutts of very different pedigrees: Atlas is intelligent and rational, a calculating hero, while Axis is more likely to take a wild swing when his blood runs hot. When our roaming adventurers return home to find Viking raiders – brutes from the North who pillage and kill all who fall under their claws – have destroyed their village, they set off on a perilous quest across land and sea to save what remains of their friends and family!

Featuring an all-new cover by Roman Dirge, the creator of cult-favorite Lenore, Atlas & Axis Issue #1 arrives in comic stores and digital devices on January 10, 2018.

Chaos never looked so cute in the form of our favourite little dead girl!

All four parts of the ‘Who Will Die’ storyline are collected together for the first time in this, the sixth Lenore collection.

In a storyline that has been building for over a year, Roman Dirge, the so-called ‘Arch-Deacon of the Macabre’ has been slowly ratcheting up the tension and silliness in a story arc that will see one of his most beloved characters pushing up the daisies — FOR GOOD, we kid you not..!

NO, seriously. This isn’t one of those dead for a year kind of deals other publishers do – this is the real deal. DEFO dead! Deader than a door nail kind of dead. The sort of dead that leaves the reader gasping in stunned amazement at the sheer audacity of the thing. Seriously, as god is my witness someone’s dying or my name isn’t Ferdinand Marco De Boing Boing III.
It’s going to change the way we see dead people in comic books for all time!

Someone’s going to die…

After four issues it’s time for a death in the family.

And we’re not talking about a case of mild death – you know, when a character comes back after a year or so, no longer dead. We’re talking dead-dead. Dead as a doornail dead, the pushing up daisies kind of dead. And Roman swears blind it’s sticking, “no one’s curing this dose of the deads,” said he, if we’d asked him and he’d said that in response.

But who will it be..?

Will it be Lenore, the titular star of the comic, or maybe Ragamuffin, her stalwart and loyal companion? Perhaps Death will come a knocking on the door of Pooty, the trident armed, bucket-headed demon from Heck, or maybe it’ll be the sinister, eons-old serial killer, Mr. Taxidermy – the self appointed protector of Lenore and children everywhere?

Or perhaps it’s that new, good-looking crewmember dressed in the red shirt.
There’s only one way to find out…

Taxidermy is missing and Lenore has an important question for him, so she forces Pooty and Ragamuffin to join her in a mighty quest, dressed as fantasy heroes, to rescue their lost friend from the evil clutches of something that is clutch-y. What obstacles will be thrown in the path of our brave and noble warriors? Honestly, no idea yet. Seriously, I just thought of this like 2 minutes ago while watching TV. It’ll be epic-y though. EPIC-Y!

This is the last issue before the big battle happens that destroys the town of Nevermore and forever costs one of the main characters their lives. It’s all been leading up to this. Well, not THIS, this. Next issue is the THIS, this. THIS is confusing. Whatevs…Lenore and gang do a fantasy quest. Funny happens. *Drops mic*
