Enki Bilal: Legends of Today
Legends of Today brings together the first three volumes created by Enki Bilal in collaboration with the award-winning comics writer Pierre Christin.
Antagonised by an enigmatic character with supernatural powers, which serves as a theme for the trilogy, the three stories delve into the lives of various traditional communities (a village of the Landes, a Breton fishing port, a small working-class town in the North) as they fight against the police, the army, and all those in power, whose action, at the time, was very controversial.
The Nikopol Trilogy
The year is 2025, and Herakles Nikopol has returned to Earth following a 30-years exile in cryostasis. The Paris he lands in, however, is not the one he left. In his absence, the Gods of Egypt have returned to reassert their dominance over the human race.
One God in particular, the renegade Horus, has great plans he can only carry out with the help, unwilling though it may be, of Nikopol himself. Together they embark on a wild adventure that involves politics, intrigue, love… and a brutal, blood-soaked, hockey game.
“An extraordinary comics literary achievement and a cracking good story.”
– Publisher’s Weekly
He created the android. He is their father, he is their god, but also their executioner. He will be given a second chance, to repair all of the damage he has done.
Man and machine collide in this sci-fi epic that questions the very nature of the human soul. In this science fiction adventure, warrior robots known as ‘Exterminators’ are strewn across the galaxy in a host of deadly environments, fighting for their human masters. But when the creator of these mechanical killers finds his soul trapped in Exterminator 17, the balance of power begins to shift.
“Clever, cinematic and absorbing.” – Slings & Arrows

In The Black Order Brigade, a group of aging revolutionaries band together for one last stand against fascism. As they speed around Europe, chasing down leads and picking off old adversaries, they realize they are heading for an explosive showdown!
A group of Communist leaders gather for some sport in a quiet forest in The Hunting Party. Soon the snowy ground is stained red with the blood of more than just animals, as the machinations of the political world weave through the trees toward an unsuspecting victim…
“an engaging, original story that should resonate with audiences interested in the evolving process of history and how it is shaped..” – ICv2
Enki Bilal’s Monster tetralogy collected in English in its entirety for the first time ever.
The Monster tetralogy is Enki Bilal’s most personal work. The story follows Nike, Leyla, and Amir – three orphans born days apart, in the same bed, amidst the bombs of Sarajevo (Bilal’s homeland) during the war of Yugoslavia in 1993. The lives of the three spiral off on different trajectories before bringing them tougher once more.
“Bilal’s artwork is exquisite… A sure-fire bet for science fiction fans.” – Foreword Reviews
