He ain't on anybody's side but his own - Alan Hebden and Carlos Ezquerra's groundbreaking character El Mestizo is now available to pre-order!

Bursting out of the pages of legendary Battle Picture Weekly and perfect for fans of Moebius's Blueberry and the motion picture Django Unchained, El Mestizo was once a slave who managed to escape to Mexico. Now he’s come back over the border – a mercenary for hire!

It is 1862 – a time of great turmoil as the American Civil War tears a nation in two, where dangerous men prosper through bloodshed. But does El Mestizo really work for either side, or is he playing them both?

Despite running for only for 16 weeks after its debut in 4th June 1977, El Mestizo was one of Carlos Ezquerra's favourite characters - written specially for him by Alan Hebden at Battle editor Dave Hunt's request Ahead of its time, this unusual Western showed a different view of the American Civil War with an anti-hero who was one of the first lead characters of colour in British comics. A groundbreaking piece of work and a true tribute to Ezquerra's comic book vision!

This gorgeous hardcover collection includes the complete story, plus a new introduction by Alan Hebden.
