A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
In this wildly entertaining fantasy debut we meet Broxo, the only surviving member of a tribe of barbarians who once occupied a now-desolate mountain. All alone in the world, Broxo spends his time on the mountain hunting and avoiding the man-eating walking dead that periodically drag themselves out of a fetid lake.
Everything changes when Zora, a foreign princess, arrives on the mountain seeking Broxo's lost tribe. Can the two young warriors together defeat the living dead?
With accessible and beautiful art, killer fight scenes, and a story that mixes humor, romance, and classic high fantasy, "Broxo" is a tale you're sure to enoy.
Zack Giallongo is a professional cartoonist, cheese enthusiast, and amateur banjo-ist. His first solo graphic novel, "Broxo, " is about teenage barbarians and was published in 2012. It hit #4 on the "New York Times" Bestsellers list.
