Created by William A. Ward for Swan Comics in the 1940s. Krakos was one of Ward’s supernatural anti-hero types. Used, with Swan’s permission, in Black Tower Adventure strips in the 1980s/1990s, this is the character’s first solo outing.

Krakos and the ancient gods of Egypt know each other well. On the gods part they show frustration, anger as well as trickery to persuade.  From Krakos all they receive in return is contempt.  But will Krakos, returning to Egypt, fulfill the Goddess Isis’ predictive dream and become the Pharoah of a New Egyptian Kingdom that will encompass all of the Middle East?

The gods believe that he has to and must.

But did anyone actually ask Krakos?

The book contains information on Ward and his work plus sample pages rescued after 60 years of neglect!


Note: newly recovered Krakos pages will appear in Black Tower Super Heroes
