NYCC2018: Two New Polar Graphic Novels Coming In 2019
by Tito W. James
With the Polar Movie set to debut on Netflix in 2019, Dark Horse with publish second edition of the film’s source material Polar: Came from the Cold. But that’s not all, next year Polar fans are treated to two new polar comics telling the story of how the Black Kaiser began and how his days as an assassin ended. As fan of the Polar series and Victor Santos‘ most recent work Guts, I’m pretty excited to see the next action-packed adventure.
Polar Volume 0: The Black Kaiser finds the Black Kaiser in direct conflict with the nefarious agency known as the Damocles Initiative. This 96-page hardcover collection explores the origins of one of the most feared assassins in the world.
Polar Volume 4: The Kaiser Falls follows Black Kaiser as he tries to assimilate into retired life in Miami. The indomitable spy’s peaceful retirement is interrupted when a rookie assassin finds Kaiser and challenges him for his crown. His simple life becomes complicated when Kaiser’s housemaid has problems with a local gang. However, resurfacing to maintain the peace, puts him right in the new adversary’s crosshairs.
Look for Polar Volume 4: The Kaiser Falls and Polar Volume 0:The Black Kaiser goes on store shelves March 6, 2019.
