[Preview] The Hunt for the Da Vinci Codex Begins in Action Lab’s ATHENA VOLTAIRE AND THE GOLDEN DAWN TPB

Athena Voltaire

The Nazi fighting aviatrix returns in another high-tension adventure!

Athena Voltaire travels the world on dangerous missions to find fantastic ancient artifacts. In her latest adventure, she goes to Portugal to find a previously undiscovered Da Vinci Codex. But not all is as it seems with Athena and her companions finding themselves up against the Nazis’ mysterious Golden Dawn Society.

THE GOLDEN DAWN is the second adventure of Athena’s ongoing series, and it’s the perfect place for new readers to jump into the adventure. Athena is perfect for fans of classic adventure stories like Indiana JonesUncharted and Tomb Raider. It’s a wonderful treasure hunting story with an empowering female heroine readers won’t forget.

The aviatrix’s webcomic was nominated for an Eisner and creator/writer Steve Bryant is an Eisner, Manning, and Harvey Award-nominee. About his latest adventure, Bryant comments, “With the ongoing series, we’ve been able to lay the groundwork for a larger storyline—one I would have been unable to do on a monthly schedule by myself. THE GOLDEN DAWN continues to expand Athena’s world and mythology, and I’m thrilled with the work that Yusuf and Juanma have been doing on this arc!”


What are people saying about Athena Voltaire:

“Athena Voltaire is just my kind of glorious pulp epic. A comic lover’s comic book
if there ever was one, full of everything that makes comic books worth loving.”
– Matt Fraction (Invincible Iron ManUncanny X-MenThe Immortal Iron Fist)

“I love this… totally Indiana Jones and Laura Croft had a baby and named her Athena. ”
(Reading with a Flight Ring)

“If the rest of this series is as good as issue #1, I am in!”
(The Nerds Uncanny)

In addition to being entertaining in its own right, this book also appears to plant
some seeds for future stories, and I look forward to seeing where things go.
