Synopsis

Nikolai Dante Hero of the Revolution by Robbie Morrison, Simon Fraser, John Burns

Year of the Tsar 2676 AD. The bastard son of the Romanovs, Nikolai Dante, leads a rebellion against Vladimir the Conqueror. Supported by the tyrant's daughter, Jena Makarov, his mother the pirate queen Katarina Dante, and some of his weapons-crest-enabled siblings, can Dante defeat his nemesis and bring peace to the empire, or is there another fiendish figure preparing to take control? With gripping writing from Robbie Morrison (Shakara, The Authority) and jaw-dropping art from Simon Fraser (Lilly MacKenzie and the Mines of Charbydis) and John Burns (Bendatti Vendetta), prepare for a wild ride of action and intrigue as Nikolai Dante's epic adventure gets closer to a mind-blowing conclusion!

About the Author

Robbie Morrison is one of 2000 AD's most popular writers, having co-created The Bendatti Vendetta, Shakara, Shimura and Vanguard, and has chronicled the adventures of Judge Dredd in 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine. He is also co-creator of fan-favourite Russian rogue Nikolai Dante, which won an Eagle award for 'Best UK Character', beating Judge Dredd to this accolade for the first time in almost twenty years. In the US, he has written Spider-Man's Tangled Web for Marvel and The Authority for DC/WildStorm. His and artist Charlie Adlard's critically acclaimed graphic novel White Death has also been hugely successful in both Europe and the US. John Burns' painted art has graced several 2000 AD series, notably Judge Dredd and Nikolai Dante, as well in as his own co-creation, The Bendatti Vendetta. He has also contributed to Black Light, Doctor Sin, The Scarlet Apocrypha, Vector 13 and Witchworld. Outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he has pencilled Eclipse's ESPers and the James Bond miniseries, A Silent Armageddon. Simon Fraser is best known to 2000 AD fans as the co-creator of Russian rogue Nikolai Dante, whose adventures have been a staple of the comic since his debut in 1997. Fraser is also the co-creator of Family in the Judge Dredd Megazine, and has drawn Judge Dredd and Shimura. His best-known non-2000 AD work is Lux & Alby: Sign On and Save the Universe, a collaboration with Scottish post-punk author Martin Millar. Fraser's creator-owned project Lilly MacKenzie and the Mines of Charbydis has recently seen print in the Judge Dredd Megazine. His website is www.simonfraser.net.
