Apama - The Origin
A bat, a spider, a wolverine, sure, but an Apama? What the heck's an Apama?
Hungarian ice cream truck driver Ilyia Zjarsky is about to crash into that answer when he goes hiking and discovers the legend of this ancient creature lost in the shrouded shadows of Myth.
Can Ilyia recreate the impossible pose that will unlock this savage animal's spirit force within him? Perhaps the bigger question is, 'Should he?'

"Great fun which nicely captures the bronze age spirit." -- DOUG MOENCH
"I dug it -- it had a mix of being a serious origin, like in the 70s, and yet started lifting off into Steve Gerber territory. Old school Marvel with a modern twist." -- Derek McCaw, FANBOY PLANET
"Apama is great! A wonderfully fresh work -- Gallego's artwork is nothing short of iconic.
GRADE: A" -- THE PULLBOX
