Rebellion Releases — 26 May 2021


From the high seas of 1770 to the Western Front in 1916, follow Adam Eterno’s earliest adventures from the pages of Thunder!

The new collection of the tragic, action-filled saga of the eternal man, Adam Eterno, is now available in standard paperback from all good retailers, and as a limited edition hardcover exclusively from the Treasury of British Comics and 2000 AD webshops.

In a cellar beneath Tudor London, Adam watches as his master, the great alchemist Erasmus Hemlock, achieves his life’s goal – creating the ‘Elixir of Life’!

Resentful for his years of slavish devotion, Adam swallows the legendary potion – and with his dying breath Hemlock curses him with immortality! Unless Adam is struck with a solid gold object, he is “doomed to wander through the labyrinths of time…!”.

Created by Chris Lowder (Judge Dredd) and editor Jack LeGrand with artist Tom Kerr, Adam Eterno is one of the legendary characters of mid-20th Century British comics. Written by Tom Tully (Roy of the Rovers), the stories in this collection are beautifully illustrated with black and white art by Solano Lopez (Janus Stark), Colin Page (Billy’s Boots) and Tom Kerr.

Collecting the original stories from Thunder 17 October 1970-13 March 1971 and the Thunder Annual from 1972, 1973 and 1974, this is a unique collection of a unique character from the golden age of British comics!

  1. Here's a nice link between these two publications. Annie Parkhouse lettered two of the stories in 2000AD, and she worked on Thunder as a bodger in her early days at IPC. She's one of the great unsung stalwarts of British comics and deserves some attention.
    I found a nice little interview with her at https://www.mookychick.co.uk/reviews/comics-anime/annie-parkhouse-comics-interview.php but it would be great if somebody sat down with her and interviewed her in depth.
