Comic News: Quartermaine Strikes Again Later This Year From Bluewater

Coming later this year a brand new series from Bluewater Productions on the classic Allan Quatermain character.

This will be the 2nd mini series at Bluewater featuring the iconic character. 
Written by Scott Davis (William Shatner’s TekWar, Ray Harryhausen’s 20 Million Miles More & Dorian Gray) and drawn by Hoyt Silva.

The new series is described as, he is the legend that spawned thousands of imitators, but Quatermain is an action adventure original. It is 1883 and the face of Africa is in transition. Colonial powers are fighting over every inch of land and it is the Africans themselves caught in the vice of violence and exploitation. But Allan Quatermain is not interested in politics; he’s a grieving father travelling back to England to bury his son. That is until the weight of a bizarre attack stops his train and makes off with his son’s body. To get him back, Quatermain must wade through the underbelly of colonial African treachery and face the Dark Heart of the Mountain. This new chapter of the Quatermain saga is full of the excitement of its predecessors and offers a new supernatural twist that may be more than the legendary hunter can overcome.

"It's high stakes adventure, that couldn't be more fun to illustrate," artist Hoyt Silva.

“Writing in the world of Allan Quatermain is truly going to the source of modern action adventure. 
He may be a product of 19th century Europe, but this story of greed, power, grief and redemption is as relevant as turning on today’s news’, said Davis. 

The 1st mini series is available in print at Comic Flea Market as well as digitally on all platforms.
