was the title of a newspaper comic strip
featuring an eponymous lead character, which was published in British daily tabloid The Sun
from 1978 to 1986. It was written by Donne Avenell
and drawn by Romero
Commissioned by The Sun
in 1978, the series was designed as a daily three-panel adventure strip. The strip proved highly popular but the Sun
suddenly cancelled the strip midway through a story in 1986.
Romero returned to draw his previous series, Modesty Blaise
, but also took AXA
to the American company Eclipse Comics
, who published a two issue series of all-new adventures, though this time with much less nudity and Chuck Dixon
as writer. Another comic book version of AXA
was later produced for the Swedish
comic book "Magnum". All the strips from The Sun
have been reprinted in trade paperback
format by Ken Pierce Books.
A film version of the strip was announced in 2005. In 2008 Unizarre International Film & Television Productions
was officially attached as Producer of the film version.
In January 2011, a mobile phone game was released based on the AXA character. The game targets mainly Nokia phones, but is written in Java and is therefore expandable to other platforms.
