    Default The Ken Broeders 'Apostata' Graphic Novels

    I couldn't resist - despite not knowing a word of the language. The artwork is amazing however and made me read it purely as a visual feast!

    It's such a shame it's not been translated into English.

    This looks so cool and the best thing is that I'm Dutch!
    +rep for showing this epic comic. It's one of the few stories where the troops are realistic.
    Where did you buy them?

    Thanks for the rep Sebastianus Somerus! I bought it online from a great site - Lambiek

    Received the books within seven days after ordering. I have read them all twice now and am still drooling over the illustrations.

    I've been aware of Ken Broders for a while now. Sadly, there is no English translation (or any translation into any other language as far as I know) and both the style and accuracy of the story and its illustrations are spot on. It has a nice adult theme to it also, which I find refreshing.

    The illustration are superb. Just waiting for that translation now!

    I know exactly what you saw Diocle - I tried including it in my AAR in the episode where Hypatia and Julian finally fall for each other. Sadly, Imageshack had and continues to have other plans...

    The artist is clearly very talented, in *all* aspects that are pleasing to the eye...

    Just waiting for that English translation now. If French has already been done, English will (hopefully!) follow suit soon.
