A few years have passed since Hawk and his trusty band of warriors defeated the evil wizard Voltan, but Hawk is still uneasy, fearing that the Dark wizards have only temporarily disappeared and are due to return. Once again, Hawk must assemble a team of warriors to confront the returning evil. The Mind Sword may be the key to saving the world, but is it also responsible for the resurgence of these ungodly forces?

“Watch for me in the night!”

The first issue of the comic book sequel to the legendary British sword-and-sorcery flick Hawk the Slayer is available for review!

Out in April, this five-issue US-format mini series recaps the low budget 1980 fantasy flick directed by Terry Marcel, before launching into a brand new adventure with Hawk and his band of friends!

Simon Pegg, star of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and legendary slacker comedy Spaced, said: “It’s a testament to the lasting impact of Terry Marcel’s 1980, low budget fantasy adventure, that 40 years on Garth Ennis and Henry Flint have revisited the world of Hawk and the last elven mind stone, to bring us this lovingly crafted sequel.”

This project is a dream come true for writer Ennis – who’s been a massive fan of the movie since he saw it as a child. The art by Henry Flint is simply sublime, managing to capture the charm of the original while also adding his trademark gritty dynamism.
