Only Count Eckstein – one of their own – has the power to crush the genocidal rebellion… but there’s no way in Hell that he can do it without the help of a young woman named Sarah, who hides an incredible and monstrous secret! Beast Hunter X #1 is available with two covers:

  • Beast Hunter X #1 Main Cover by Richard Bonk (Grimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland)

American Mythology, the Maryland-based publisher of comic books and graphic novels, is experiencing a renaissance with their new initiatives, building upon the excitement of their latest Edgar Rice Burroughs announcement: “Fear on Four Worlds,” an epic crossover event that unites the iconic heroes of literary great Edgar Rice Burroughs into a shared comic book universe. Beginning with the special one-shot Carson of Venus #1 in June, the four-part “Fear on Four Worlds” storyline will continue across additional special issues in the ensuing months: Moon Maid #1Pellucidar #1, and The Land That Time Forgot #1, and the aftershocks of this cataclysmic event will ripple through individual miniseries throughout 2018 and beyond.

“It’s a bright new day for American Mythology,” says Barlow Jones, Marketing Manager. “We’re taking a look at all the fantastic licenses and independent concepts in our stable, stripping them down to the core of what comic fans love about them, and really juicing up those elements. We’re reimagining how to develop, promote, and publish comics, and as we expand our line with the ERB extravaganza and bold new June launches, fans and retailers can rest assured that more thrills are on the way!”
