Hermes Press is proud to announce their new original graphic novel, Executive Outcomes, which is based on true events.
STORY: NICK BICANIC
SCRIPT: M. ZACHARY SHERMAN
ART: EMMANUEL XERX JAVIER
COLORS: JESSICA HUFFMAN
LETTERS: MARSHALL DILLON
COVER: LERI GREER
TITLE: Executive Outcomes
War doesn’t determine who is right. War determines who is left.
(based on the explosive true story of the private military company Executive outcomes)
Major Cobus Claassens commands a team of 150 mercenaries contracted to bring stability to the war-torn West African country of Sierra Leone. Battling overwhelming odds, Cobus and his men train and fight alongside a small contingent of soldiers against a murderous band of 15,000 rebel fighters bent on genocide.
No amount of soldiering has prepared the men for the vicious arena of butchery, treachery and mounting political pressure they experience while trying to do what is just.
What difference does winning make - if they lose their humanity in the process?
With a story by Nick Bicanic (Director and Producer of the 4x LEO award winning documentary about mercenaries “Shadow Company”), a script written by M. Zachary Sherman (IDW’s America’s Army), and art by Emmanuel Xerx Javier (BOOM! Studio’s Nightbreed) - Executive Outcomes is a politically charged and action-packed story that captures the real-life events of a few good men accomplishing impossible deeds.
