Archaia’s The Devil’s Handshake Now Available


The new comic from the creators of Spooks

If you’re looking for something a bit different, say… a pulp comic book adventure with flesh eating cannibals, murderous ghouls and possibly the devil himself, then Archaia’s The Devil’s Handshake might be right up your alley.

From the same creative team behind the popular Spooks comic franchise, The Devil’s Handshake reunites creator and co-writer Ryan Schifrin (Abominable), co-writer and G.I. Joe godfather Larry Hama, and artist Adam Archer.

The Devil’s Handshake is the story of two adventurous British jewel thieves named Alaric Moebius and Basil Fox, who have been tricked into stealing artifacts from around the world by a man who might just be the Devil himself! On an adventure that takes them from the volcanoes of New Guinea to the wastelands of the Saharan desert, Moebius and Fox encounter flesh-eating cannibals, an all-virgin squad of female commandos, and the murderous undead Ghoul Brothers, who never seem to be far behind our heroes!

Famed moviemaker Guillermo Del Toro called the book “a delightful romp mixing pulpish delight with bold, eye-catching graphics and instantly likable characters. It’s old-school fun for the 21st century.”

The first issue is now available at comic shops everywhere.
