HEXAGON COMICS is a library of approximately 5000 comic books consisting of over 500 characters created and published over the past 50 years that have sold over 400 million units, mostly in France, Italy and Spain.
The HEXAGON COMICS characters were originally published by one of France's leading publishers of French, Italian, and American newstand comics, Editions Lug, established in 1950.
In the 1980s, Editions Lug was sold to SEMIC, which continued to publish the characters, some in modernized versions in 2000-03. Some of these new stories were published as comic books in the United States.
In 2004, the rights to the characters reverted to their creators, who banded together as HEXAGON COMICS to continue exploiting their creations.
In 2010, HEXAGON COMICS partnered with RIVIERE BLANCHE to relaunch an ambitious publishing program in France, involving both the reprint of classic stories in 500+-pages trade paperbacks, and two series of new color comics featuring all-new stories of our characters. More than 40 books, two dozen comics, four novelizations and a set of trading cards have already been published. For details see here.

|ORDER WAMPUS (Volume 1) by Franco Frescura
and Luciano Bernasconi,
foreword by Will Eisner,
cover by Stephen R. Bissette:
US$20.95 + $3.00 p&h
(European orders: send 25 Euros postage included) "I ate it up when my copy arrived and have
already reread it, it's such grand fun; a heady stew of bogus sf/alien/espionage/terrorism circa the '60s, working
up to staggering global political/social collapse (orchestrated by the translucent noodle-bodied badboy Wampus)
that builds upon the anarchistic spirit of none other than Diabolik -- hence, a missing link of sorts in European
comics history, between the archetype of Fantomas and the coming wave of underground comix radicalism. Love, love,
love it, highly recommended!" S.R. Bissette. Wampus is one of the great alien monsters
of comics... [an] obscure gem of bande dessinée pulp paranoia. Paul Gravett. Review on Comic Bits Online.
