Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat comics are renowned for their humor, artistic flair and appeal to both children and adults.  The Peter Wheat comic books are extremely rare and have never been collected as a series before, due to their scarcity and rarity.  Between 1948 and 1951, Kelly drew thirty-five issues of The Adventures of Peter Wheat, a sixteen page comic book given away to bakeries to promote Peter Wheat bread.  The stories were fairy tales starring Peter Wheat, an elf-sized boy who lived in a hollow tree on the edge of a wheat field where he and the Little Folk battle Dragonel, Queen of the Hornets, and later The Wizard.
 
Continuing in their quest to reprint the rare and never before collected Peter Wheat, Hermes Press is proud to announce Volume 2 is in the works! Walt Kelly's Peter Wheat the Complete Series: Volume Two picks up where Volume One left off, starting with Issue #15 and continuing to Issue #25! Dragonel and Peter Wheat have just escaped from the Hornets and are exiled from the castle – they must now survive in the forest until the Hornet Knights are defeated!

Executive Outcomes is coming soon!

Hermes Press is proud to announce that their original graphic novel, Executive Outcomes, has arrived! Executive Outcomes is based on a true story that has been adapted by Nick Bicanic, who has directed and produced Shadow Company, a LEO Award-winning documentary about mercenaries, and a script by M. Zachary Sherman. This title received a Staff Pick from Previews in May 2015, the solicitation magazine for Diamond Comics.

 

From Steve Leaf’s review of the graphic novel:

“Were I to mention "Africa" and "Hermes Press," you would initially think of The Phantom, not a story based on true events in that area of the world. Executive Outcomes is a departure from the norm for Hermes Press and a great start into their expansion beyond their collections of classic comic strips and comic books.

Based on a true story by Nick Bicanic (director and producer of Shadow Company, a LEO Award-winning documentary about mercenaries), with script by M. Zachary Sherman and art by Emmanuel Xerx Javier, Executive Outcomes is an action-packed story of mercenaries who are contracted to bring stability to the war-torn West African country of Sierra Leone. Given recent events throughout Africa and the countries fighting groups like Boko Haram, this story has a feeling of authenticity and not an episode of Strike Back. This is real action to the max.

Major Cobus Claassens, commander of a team of 150 mercenaries, quickly discovers that no amount of soldiering can prepare his men for the vicious arena of butchery, treachery, and mounting political pressures his soldiers will experience while trying to do what is just. What difference does winning make if they lose their humanity in the process? Do you stick your head in the sand and let genocide occur or do you try and make a difference to a people?

While this is not the usual book from Hermes, I am more than happy to make space for this in my collection, not with my G.I. Joes but with Eisner’s Last Day in Vietnam, Kubert’s Yossel, and Max Brook’s Harlem Hellfighters.”
