PRE-ORDER NOW – The Return of the Son of Eleventh Hour

covers_new.inddCelebrating 10 Years Of Orang Utan Comics!

It’s Orang Utan Comics’ tenth anniversary and we’re having a party…and you’re all invited!

However, so are space pirates, dragons, Vikings, extra-humans, vampires, axe murdering cheerleaders, werewolves, Boadicca, more vampires, a super hero, outlaws, a gelatinous cube, a doom laden message from the future and a whole cast of weird and wonderful characters.

It’s going to be quite a party.

The Return Of The Son Of Eleventh Hour features eighteen stories from the past, present and, quite possibly, the future of Orang Utan Comics. It all kicks off with a brand new prologue to The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley and ends with a rarely seen Hero: 9 to 5 short. It’s been ten years and OUC are still making comics for a strange new world.

Available to pre-order now on Amazon worldwide, The Return Of The Son Of Eleventh Hour is the anthology that quite literally has something for everyone!

The creative minds at Orang Utan Comics have teamed up with UK graphic novel publishing power house Markosia to bring you two thrilling new books in time for the London Super Comic Con.

In Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus the creative team of Ian Sharman, David Gray and Yel Zamor return us to a world where the rich can afford the best in super hero protection, but the poor have to get by with the heroic equivalent of third party, fire and theft. The “Lone Knight” returns from the pages of Hero: 9 to 5, but how will The Loner and the finest men and women that publicly funded super hero protection can supply cope when a mysterious figure leaves a trail of unconnected corpses in his wake? How will a young hero deal with the loss of his mentor? And, more importantly, how will Thunder Woman get her groceries when she runs into Lash Lady at the store? In a world where being a super hero is just another job, what happens when there’s nobody left alive to pay the bill? Quietus – some men just want to watch the world die.

Zakk Ridley is just your average smuggler and rogue until he and his robotic partner, Dan, get caught up in an intergalactic conspiracy. Zakk dreams of an easy life roaming the galaxy and making a fast buck or two, but as they say, in space no one can hear you dream… The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley is written by Orang Utan Comics’ founders Ian Sharman (Alpha Gods/Hero: 9 to 5) and Pete Rogers (The Interactives) with stunning fully painted art by Ewan McLaughlin.

Those who’ve been following the fortunes of Orang Utan Comics will know that these two books have been a long time coming,” said Hero: 9 to 5 and Zakk Ridley writer, Ian Sharman. “2013 was something of a roller coaster year for me and it feels exceptionally satisfying to be starting 2014 with the launch of two books I’ve been looking forward to getting into people’s hands for years.” Orang Utan Comics have plans for more releases throughout the year, including a hardback collection of Alpha Gods: Betrayal, a series that should also be seeing its animated debut later in the year, and the first print collection of their ongoing web comic series, Spacescape.

The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley and Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus are both now available to pre-order from the Orang Utan Comics online store. Both books will be released at London Super Comic Con on 15th-16th March 2014 at the Excel Centre in London, and there are options to pre-order to pick up at the convention and to pre-order for mail order delivery after the show. All mail ordered books will be shipped signed by writer Ian Sharman, who will be on hand to personally sign books at LSCC. Both books are offered at special LSCC discount prices. The regular price for The Intergalactic Adventures of Zakk Ridley is £17.99 but you can get this 100 page, full colour hardback for just £15. The regular price for Hero: 9 to 5 – Quietus is £11.99 but you can get this 96 page, full colour softcover for just £10.
