Description
The son of the greatest barbarian who ever livedis thrust into a quest that, frankly, he'd rather sit out. Long before darkness descended upon therealm, Mungletown was protected by noble heroes led by the great loin-clothedwarrior Hellcock. So fearsome was his might that . . . well, actually, a dragoneats him on page nine. But never mind that! Years later he's still hangingaround as a ghost to cajole his disappointment of a son, Allen, into taking upthe mantle and becoming a proper heir to the Hellcock legacy. But Allen prefersa simpler life of eating sandwiches, drawing his own pretty terrible comicbooks, and being afraid to talk to girls. When Kaarl, the son of Hellcock'sretired nemesis Lord Krong, attacks the town to break up the monotony ofpeacetime, only local rabble-rouser Madeleine stands up to him. In a desperatebid to impress her, Allen decides to get Hellcock's old band of adventurers backtogether and take the fight to Kaarl. Without much of a plan or any usefulskills, what happens next is quite painful to witness. From the comedic minds of Will Tracy (The Onion, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver) and Gabe Koplowitz(VICELAND), ALLEN, SON OF HELLCOCK has it all: washed-up sorcerers andswordsmen, terrifying horse-donkeys, sensitive ogres, fashionable elves, orneryminotaur landlords, an exceedingly polite retired despot, a black-hearted butoddly lovable villain, an idealistic young woman who's the only one with anybrains, and a would-be warrior who can't seem to escape his own hackneyeddestiny . . .
