Axa: The Movie & The New Adventures



Had all this stuff for a while but completely forgot I had it, so here it is now, gang.
Firstly, there's an Axa movie in development. These pics are from a piece Down The Tubes did last year, and there doesn't seem to be much movement since then, but we live in hope.


The other stuff I've been sitting on is Axa: The New Adventures. I don't have a lot of info on these but Romero did eight more Axa stories, long after the original run in The Sun, for the Spanish or Dutch market. This edition prints 4 of them, for instance.


Ages back, I came across them on the net, and started translating them into English. ( via google translate, which means the dialogue is as stilted as in the original stories! ) They have various titles, but in keeping with the original run, I'm calling them Axa: In The Beginning, Axa In The Beehive, Axa In The Castle Of Monsters, Axa In The Wasteland, Axa In The Pool Of Time, Axa In The Mountains Of Snow, Axa In The Freakshow & Axa In The Real World.
So here's the first one - if you all want to see more, you know what to do!

  2. That'd be my view. At some point I'll put 'Axa In The Real World' up. It's where she kind of meets Romero, and tells him off for constantly putting her in danger, just for his ( and our ) entertainment.
