Wheels of Terror

The Graphic Novel

By Sven Hassel and Jordy Diago

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Sven Hassel's iconic war novel, WHEELS OF TERROR, is brought vividly to life in this graphic novel, illustrated by Jordy Diago.

A graphic novel adaptation of Sven Hassel's classic war novel, WHEELS OF TERROR, illustrated by Jordy Diago.

Stationed on the Eastern Front and now equipped with armoured vehicles, Sven Hassel and his comrades from the 27th Penal Regiment fight on remorselessly . . . All of them should be dead: life expectancy on the Front is measured in weeks. But Sven, Porta, the Old Un and the Legionnaire fight to the end, not for Germany, not for Hitler, but for survival.

From the blistering cold to the horrors of tank warfare, WHEELS OF TERROR is a sobering depiction of war's brutalities, and the violence and inhumanity that the history books leave out.

Biographical Notes

Sven Hassel was born in 1917 in Fredensborg, Denmark. He began writing LEGION OF THE DAMNED during his time as a prisoner of war.

An excellent and faithful adaption of the classic anti-war novel by Sven Hassel — Pat Mills, author of Charley's War
Jordy Diago is to be complimented for his achievements; I certainly hope to see more from him — Garth Ennis, author of PREACHER
This is a book of horrors. And should be left alone by those prone to nightmares . . . A great war novel — Alan Sillitoe, author of SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING
Close reading, much swooning over the artwork, and quite a lot of plaudits, are what this volume deserves — Bookbag.co.uk
Grim, bleak, blackly funny and still ferociously forceful, this pictorial interpretation is a splendid first outing from all involved, deftly negotiating the minefield of how to keep the necessarily horrendous visual aspect from overpowering the events...all in all this is a book to satisfy old fans and make a legion of new ones. — Comics Review
What Jordy has done is keep the tale in Sven's own words bringing his artistic talents to the fore and giving the readers what they fell in love with in their original read, hard-core action, top notch dialogue and of course a dark humour that war brings out in man...Great item. — Falcata Times
Wheels of Terror: The Graphic Novel is as much a classic of the anti-war literature as the original novel is. I urge you to get it. — Upcoming 4 Me

Francis I

Leonie Frieda
Authors:
Leonie Frieda

Francis I (1494-1547) was inconstant, amorous, hot-headed and flawed. Yet he was also arguably the most significant king that France ever had. This is his story. A contemporary of Henry VIII of England, Francis saw himself as the first Renaissance king, a man who was the exemplar of courtly and civilised behaviour throughout Europe. A courageous and heroic warrior, he was also a keen aesthete, an accomplished diplomat and an energetic ruler who turned his country into a force to be reckoned with. Yet he was also capricious, vain and arrogant, taking hugely unnecessary risks, at least one of which nearly resulted in the end of his kingdom. His great feud with his nemesis Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor, defined European diplomacy and sovereignty, but his notorious alliance with the great Ottoman ruler Suleiman the Magnificent threatened to destroy everything. With access to never-before-seen private archives, Leonie Frieda's comprehensive and sympathetic account explores the life of the most human of all Renaissance monarchs - and the most enigmatic.

'Riveting! Bussi spins psychological suspense at its finest with this consuming tale of one child, two families, and the dark secrets that define us all. Clear your schedule; this book is worth it!' - Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Crash & Burn and Find HerOn the night of 22 December 1980, a plane crashes on the Franco-Swiss border and is engulfed in flames. 168 out of 169 passengers are killed instantly. The miraculous sole survivor is a three-month-old baby girl. Two families, one rich, the other poor, step forward to claim her, sparking an investigation that will last for almost two decades. Is she Lyse-Rose or Emilie? Eighteen years later, having failed to discover the truth, private detective Crédule Grand-Duc plans to take his own life, but not before placing an account of his investigation in the girl's hands. But, as he sits at his desk about to pull the trigger, he uncovers a secret that changes everything - then is killed before he can breathe a word of it to anyone . . .'A novel so extraordinary that it reminded me of reading Stieg Larsson for the very first time. Bussi's novel brings with it the same thrill of discovering a truly original voice.'Joan Smith, Sunday Times'After the Crash is a jolt to the senses and a jolt to the heart - both rollicking and labyrinthine, both wildly propulsive and yet rich with grand drama, and with a cast of characters - particularly its sumptuously powerful women - you won't forget' Megan Abbott, author of The Fever'You find yourself quite frantic to know the truth, before this cleverly constructed, smart mystery concludes by delivering a delicious sting in the tail.' Sunday Mirror'Truly compelling ...Michel Bussi knows exactly how to keep the reader turning page after page even when it's past time to turn out that bedside lamp' Barry Forshaw, Good Book Guide
