Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess #3

The all-new series starring the fan-favorite pulp heroine concludes. The Nazis stand on the precipice of harnessing the power of the Hollow Earth. To stop the ultimate evil from seizing world domination Athena Voltaire must fight them to the death atop an active volcano!

One would think that a trip to beautiful Hawaii would be full of sun and relaxation. This is not one of those trips and is instead packed with Nazis and an elemental goddess. But, that’s probably what you’d expect in issue three of Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess, right?

Narrowly escaping death in the Pacific, Athena is picked up by a Honolulu detective and brought in for questioning. After explaining the situation with the artifact and Nazis, the detective actually decides to help...

Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess #2

The Eisner-nominated adventures of Athena Voltaire continue in this latest installment! Athena flies to Hawaii in the hope of returning the artifact known as Pele’s Tears to the Kilauea Volcano, but deadly assassins, an old nemesis, and the Nazis all want the mystical item for themselves!

The last time I had a break from the action of this fast paced hero, it was almost two years. Luckily, this time I only had to go a month in between her adventures. Fists and bullets are still flying and it wouldn’t be any other way for the second issue of Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess.

Our party crashers have no interest in talking, which is fine for Athena and gang who all hold their own. Realizing the risk of keeping the amulet, Athena makes plans to return it to the volcano...

Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess #1

The fan-favorite pulp heroine returns in an all-new miniseries written and drawn by Eisner and Manning Award-nominated creator Steve Bryant. When her father gains possession of a legendary necklace, Athena Voltaire must save him from both strange assassins and the Nazis, who want the power the artifact could unlock!

I was really convinced I had read something from this series at some point, and actually had to dig through our archives to double check. I had in fact checked out the collection as seen here, and nearly two years ago at that. Still shooting first and asking questions later, we rejoin this tough as nails adventurer in issue one of Athena Voltaire and the Volcano Goddess.

Escaping from yet another precarious situation, Athena and companion Agent Desmond Forsyth try to stop a g...

Athena Voltaire HC

In the knuckle-dusting style of classic pulp adventure comes Athena Voltaire, the beautiful globetrotting aviatrix who takes on Nazis, zombies, and unspeakable occult creatures! This whopping tome rescripts and remasters Athena’s adventures from the long-running, Eisner-nominated comic by Steve Bryant, including over fifty pages of brand-new material!

Not all heroes have to have superpowers in order to kick ass, but fighting vampires and Nazis is a great way to still keep it interesting.  With the exception of seeing a Kickstarter project for one of the recent books I’ve had no experience with this series before.  Now with a refreshed compendium version of her adventures to date, I had the opportunity to see read Athena Voltaire in all her glory.

This is a really fun collection of h...
