Freak of nature, beast of burden, hulking outcast, medieval prize fighter, Viking raider... God's own leg-breaker.
One thousand years ago a hulking outcast sought refuge in the crumbling ruins of an ancient monastery and offered in return the one thing he had to give - his fists. Transformed into an immortal warrior monk standing at the gates of Hell itself to keep our world free from its invading armies, The Anchor is mysteriously tricked into centuries of slumber. But today, this holy warrior rises to battle all the unholy monsters unleashed during his slumber. Cataclysmic action, quirky humor, and profound pathos for fans of HELLBOY and THE GOON. Brought to you by Eisner Award-nominated writer/artist Phil Hester (GREEN ARROW, SWAMP THING, THE COFFIN, FIREBREATHER, THE DARKNESS) and fan-favorite artist Brian Churilla (REX MUNDI, THE ENGINEER, CREEPY).

Portland resident Brian Churilla is the acclaimed artist of such titles as Rex Mundi, The Engineer, and Creepy. 2009 saw the launch of his original webcomic The D.B Cooper Diaries.From Booklist:
When a seven-foot granite bruiser with a biblical beard shows up to stop a monster attack on Iceland, it’s the beginning of an adventure that carries “God’s own leg-breaker” through Scotland, Rome, and the U.S. Army in a battle against demons looking to establish a beachhead on earth. Hester (The Coffin) has proven adept at investing stories with a dark, dire tone, and here he underscores it with heart in the characters of an Icelandic history student and the ghost of a recently slain boy who serve as the Anchor’s guides in this strange new world. Churilla’s art strays toward the cartoonish end for standard action-horror comics, but it serves the battles and monsters extremely well. The Anchor is a priest and speaks often of his trust in God, but absent any serious consideration of faith, it’s more of a narrative device than a resonating theme. Nevertheless, this is a splattery action extravaganza that will fit snugly next to Hellboy as you wait for upcoming installments to tie up some of this volume’s mysteries. Grades 9-12. --Jesse Karp
