"AXA: Battle for the Serpent Gate" is based on the AXA comic books, read by 8 million daily readers in the 1970s and early 1980s. AXA is syndicated and printed in the UK, US, Sweden, Holland, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong, Spain, and Italy and continues to be published, with over 2,238 strips.
The most progressive, liberated comic book heroine of the 1980s, AXA has been re-imagined for the new millennium, more relevant, intense and brutal than ever. AXA finds herself a Guardian of Dome City, a repressive, male dominated society hiding a dark secret.
The discovery of a sinister conspiracy by the Dome Elders sends AXA flying from the city with a band of rebels and warriors who face a post-apocalyptic landscape of fantastic creatures and ancient magic. AXA soon discovers the Earth itself is in danger and that she holds the key to reuniting the survivors of The Great Contamination.
