Titan Comics and Statix Press announced at NYCC creator Pau’s Prix Du FIBD Angoulême award-nominated comic – Atlas & Axis – is being translated 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!
Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai said of the news:
“I have been a fan of Pau’s Atlas & Axis for years, collecting the French editions. Pau’s cartooning and clear storytelling transcends language barriers. Now, thanks to Titan Comics, I can enjoy this wonderful series completely!”
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.
