The Hades-Syndrome is an old friend of C506.

Now, they are back to present us “The last Gig”, if you want to know what this story is about, continue with us.

Discover the Hades-Syndrome saga

The post-apocalyptic saga “Hades-Syndrome” with the adventures of Dodo and Nuke is published in Germany by TheNextArt since 2007 and currently consists of 23 issues.

After “Hunting Season” in 2021 “The last Gig” will be the next storyline to be re-launched in one completely overworked 128-pages book translated to English. Of course, a German version will be available too.

…in the near future. Twenty years of global war for the last energy  resources have left large parts of Europe in desolation. A new wall  separates Germany. On the one side dwell the last remnants of a  prosperous society – on the other side the third world… Here, in this world of the poor, the so-called Quarantine-Zone, we meet Dodo and Nuke. Together they struggle to survive in a world full of anarchy, violence and murder.

The Last Gig

Dodo, a former resistance fighter is the guitarist of the metal band Iwo Jima Girls. One last big concert in the quarantine zone should bring the band a breakthrough.

Nuke, a deserted war veteran works for the security of the concert organizer. During the preparations for the concert, Dodo and Nuke meet and fall in love.

The performance of the Iwo Jima Girls is a great success. But shortly after, a bloody gang war breaks out, throwing Dodo and Nuke’s lives completely off track…
