We’re pleased to share that August’s free eBook isEl Sombra by Al Ewing.
The terrifying Luftwaffe, on their steam-driven wings, have torn apart the sleepy town of Pasito in the heart of Mexico, only to rebuild it as a terrifying clockwork-town where the people become human robots, furthering the nightmare dreams of the Führer. That is until the return of a man the desert claimed nine long years ago, who has escaped from the doors of death to bring his fury upon their world.

The El Sombra Trilogy by Al Ewing
THIS IS THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD!
In the quiet Mexican town of Pasito, the future is born. A man dies; a fool and braggart, best forgotten. In his stead, a legend arises: the man in the bloodstained mask, the Saint of Ghosts. El Sombra!
Yearning for justice against the Nazis that plundered his home, El Sombra will cut a swath across the world. He will hunt his enemy to the streets of Manhattan – home of the mighty Doc Thunder, the terrible Blood Spider, and all the monsters and gods who fight beside them – and finally into the heart of the Ultimate Reich itself!
Thrill at the legend! Follow a story as vast as the whole world, from the beginning of the human race to the end of the time!
He defies man! He defies death! Nothing can stop him!
VIVA EL SOMBRA!
If that hasn’t sold you, then we don’t know what will. Smash the Nazis! Be a hero! Join El Sombra today!
We’ve known for years that Al Ewing is a genius, but it turns out that internet is bursting with people who want nothing more than to prove it.
First up, the David Mann over at Sequart has written a frankly enormous three-part think piece on Al’s El Sombra trilogy. It’s a thoughtful, illustrative look at what makes Al such a brilliant writer, and dissects his take on pulp superheroics – which, let it be forever we remembered, we published long before Al conquered the American mainstream comics market and the rest of the world discovered him.
