Kade Identity

    (Arcana, 2005)
™ and © 2004 Arcana Studio

Sort of a Heavy Metal hybrid of Dungeons and Dragons and Masters of the Universe with broad references to Christianity added for texture, Kade features tattooed he-men swinging battle axes and raven-haired gladiator babes with ample breasts.

Writer/creator Sean O’Reilly left most of his character development “shrouded in mystery”, but we know the title character was born on the day of the Black Sun from which ancient prophecies said would come a savior. So it is that Kade sets about freeing his world from the demon named Apollyon who has in turn set about destroying Kade to thwart the prophecy. Readers can follow the bloody conflict’s progress in full-color, oversized panels.
