HEXAGON #2: HEXAGON VS HEPTAGON by J.-M. Lofficier, Eduardo Garcia & Juan Roncagliolo - cover by Eduardo Garcia - 96 pages b&w- US$12.95.

The Hexagon Group was born either in 2002, when they made their first retroactive appearance in Strangers #1, or in the 1960s, depending upon how one looks at it. Like The Justice Society of America and The Avengers, the group gathered together a single team of different heroes published by Editions Lug in their own series between 1964 and 1974. There is Aster from the negative dimension of Zhud; Jeff Sullivan, a.k.a. the Man of Brass, descended from a long line of heroes; the powerful Dark Flyer; the beautiful Black Lys from France; Dax, the Mysterious Archer; and White Mask from the African Republic of Zambola, all brought together to fight the evil Melanos, Aster’s archenemy.
