Saltire - Graphic Novel Series

A series centring round Scotland’s first comic book superhero, the dark and gritty world of the main character is a pseudo-history of the country and its mythology. Set entirely in the landscape of Scotland during pivotal moments from the past the novel will be familiar to those who enjoy the rich legends and traditions of Scotland.

Creator John Ferguson says “Saltire is an immortal being created thousands of years ago to protect Scotland and its people. He’s big, he’s blue and he’s ginger. He has Scottish values but he’s a traditional comic book superhero with a variety of super villains to contend with as the story progresses, a Scottish competitor to Batman and Spiderman if you like.”

Saltire – Annihilation Pt.1. 
Full Colour Graphic Novel by John Ferguson. Art by Claire Roe with Lauren Knight. 
Cover by Jim Devlin. 
Published by Diamondsteel Comics Ltd. 

 Saltire Annihilation is the epic two part graphic novel tale of Scotland's immortal superhero. Set in the Dark Ages, the story weaves ancient Caledonian mythology with modern superhero dynamics. The evil Ban Sith and the tyrannical Mercyan combine to bring the greatest threat to the freedom of the clans they have ever known. Critically acclaimed and visually stunning with comparisons to Braveheart, Lord of the Rings and Marvels Avengers. 

The Dark Age, a desolate time.
A power grows to the south. A power bent on destruction...on annihilation. 
Not human...not spirit or shadow. Unleashed, she will bring despair. 
To protect the innocent, the guardians will stand once more... 
As chaos reigns before a vengeful enemy he shall rise once more...
the Immortal Guardian of a Nation.
