PRICE: £16.99 / $24.99
THIS IS A STORY OF HEROIC DEEDS... The cult classic film Hawk The Slayer continues in a brand-new comic book sequel! Years after the final defeat of Voltan, his brother Hawk suspects the influence of the Dark One’s masters- the ancient and malevolent Black Wizards, whose touch remains a blight upon the mortal world. At the behest of his mysterious sorceress ally, Hawk gathers comrades old and new- Gort the Giant, Crow the Elfin bowman, warrior woman Bella and the dubious bard Wain- and sets out to finish the Wizards once and for all. But what awaits him, deep beneath the once-holy fortress of Dainsford, is a horror beyond his darkest nightmares. Writer Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys) and artist Henry Flint (Judge Dredd, Sancho Panzer) unite to conclude the tale from the 1980 fantasy adventure, as the characters brought so memorably to life by Jack Palance and John Terry return for one final battle… WHEN THE LEGIONS OF DARKNESS STALK THE LAND!
