We now live in a world where sophisticated machinery has transformed industrial endeavor, and robots equipped with artificial intelligence are achieving a remarkable sophistication. That does not mean, however, that the notions developed and extrapolated in these pioneering works of fiction have become redundant. They are 14 tales told by seers ahead of their time, to whom the modern world gives every right to say “I told you so,” and who posed a host of questions that require answers far more urgently now than when they were written.

Hexagon Group #2: Hexagon vs Heptagon
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.
