Along with a collected edition of the Kong: King of Skull Island comic series, Markosia Enterprises has just announced the release of Serpent Wars:
Written by Christoff Rodriguez and Chris Campanozzi, with art by Antonio Rojo, Serpent Wars is set in the 1800s. When a young scientist’s apprentice stows away onto the warship of a British Lord, in order to prove that there are sea creatures downing ships off the shores of South America, his voyage leads to the discovery of a mysterious hidden island “where an ancient race is witness to the epic serpent gods who are now locked in a battle that could decide the fate of mankind”.
Publisher Harry Markos described Serpent Wars as “an absolute must-read”:
The story is based closely around South American myths and legends so you’ll see some fantastic characters. Monsters, magic and mayhem all round! We’re also delighted that industry legend Howard Chaykin will be writing an introduction, which speaks volumes for the project. (Markosia webpage)
Be that as it may, the 128-page graphic novel looks monstrously entertaining.
