Larry Hama may be known as the “godfather of G.I. Joe” but he’s also an accomplished author as well. He’s also the co-author of a brand-new graphic novel that was released today!
Check out this synopsis:
Alaric Moebius and Basil Fox are two lovable scoundrels looking to make a quick fortune. Basil is a former SAS trooper turned Queen’s Guard by day and thief by night. Moebius is an Oxford-educated charmer with a knack for getting into trouble. Together they chase adventure under the patronage of “The Collector,” a mysterious billionaire with a taste for rare and valuable supernatural objects of the occult. This first volume contains the first three adventures in their career together, introducing the unlikely duo for the first time in a highstakes chain of pulpy high adventures! Written by the legendary Larry Hama (G.I.Joe, Wolverine) with creator Ryan Schifrin, these wild adventures have the thrills of Indiana Jones, the wit and banter of the best buddy-cop pairings, and the globe-hopping wonder of James Bond. An exciting thrill ride from cover to cover!
Okay, let me get this straight— “Indiana Jones” and “James Bond” are used in analogies to describe this? I’m sensing some pulp adventure of the highest order coming from this book which is, fortunately, on its way to me already from Amazon! I’m a sucker for good pulp adventure novels as well as classic spy thriller. Considering that this is written by one of my favorite writers, this purchase was a complete no-brainer. If you’re a fan of high adventure novels or the spy genre, you might consider giving this one a read. Even better– the second graphic novel in the series is due out on July 28, 2015!
If the description above isn’t enough to whet your appetite or if you’re curious about the world of Basil and Moebius, check out this short film by the series creator Ryan Schifrin and featuring the talents of Ray Park, Malcolm McDowell, and Kane Hodder.
