Volcano Goddesses, Golden Dawns and Sorcerer Popes


It’s Sunday, the countryside is silent and dreary, yesterday people in decontamination suits walked the streets of our village decontaminating the area – a scene out of too many SF/horror movies – and today I decided I’ll be lazy, recharge my batteries and go through a collection of Athena Voltaire comics a friend sent me – I’ve been through Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess this morning, I’ll devote the afternoon to Athena Voltaire and the Sorcerer Pope, leaving Athena Voltaire and the Golden Dawn for the evening
Because I meed a little of high-octane pulp adventure in my life.

And here’s a gallery of covers, for your entertainment (If you’ve not read the Athena Voltaire comics… you should)

  1. Decontaminating suits? REALLY? Wow. What are they decontaminating that’s outside in the streets? The schools here are mostly closed for a good cleaning, but nothing in the streets.

    I haven’t read these graphic novels, but they have fun covers for sure.


    • I think they were washing the tarmac with some chemicals, or something like that. I don’t know exactly because we were ordered to stay inside while they worked

      And yes, the covers are the right sort of pulp fun that I like – as are the comics.
