Books - The Last Pantheon


The Last Pantheon

by Tade Thompson, Nick Wood
What makes a hero?

What makes a villain?

Forget Marvel and DC, forget the Avengers and the Justice League, this is a story of African superheroes written by African authors who share a deep love of the comic book and longstanding immersion in its culture.

As well as co-writing the narrative, Tade Thompson has provided the cover art and nine internal illustrations which appear throughout the text (see below). It should be stressed, however, that this is not a comic book. It is a novella, interspersed with illustrations. A thrilling story that demonstrates the fragile boundary between hero and villain, as two superpowered brothers find themselves on opposite sides of the moral divide; a story that provides stark contrast to the treatment of African superheroes by the big comic book companies even as it entertains.

In addition to the novella itself, this volume also includes interviews, articles, and even some of the initial email exchanges between the two authors when first discussing to project; these appear as 'bonus material' at the back of the book.

The Last Pantheon is dedicated to the memory of Nick Wood (1961 - 2023) 

Available as a paperback, a signed limited edition hardback (Nick's signature digitally reproduced) and an eBook.
