Shakara The Destroyer graphic novel
As readers may know, I’m a fan of Henry Flint‘s art, kind of obvious since I got him to provide visuals for all my recent releases. One of his finest comic book creations – along with writer Robbie Morrison – is the alien Shakara, a lone assassin, seeking revenge for the destruction of his race. This ran for five series’ in the UK comic anthology 2000ad and finished last year with an epic finale that I won’t spoil here.
This final series is now collected (along with the 4th series) in a graphic novel priced £14.99 – or even cheaper if you get it from Forbidden Planet! The first 3 chapters are also available at the bargain price of £12.99 here. For anyone who enjoyed Kevin O’Neill‘s Nemesis the Warlock or Simon Bisley‘s take on the ABC Warriors books, this is on par with those classics – stunning visuals and plot set pieces to blow your mind.
I’ve also been reminded that Factory Road still have a small quantity of the 2 colour screen printed tea towels that they made for our recent exhibition, sporting Henry’s line drawing for my album cover. Check them out on their shop.
