Coup de grâce – the ultimate blow, the final strike in the merciless battle that pits good vs evil, heroes vs villains! But does it signal the triumph of order or the victory of chaos? 

In this fourteenth volume of Tales of the Shadowmen, the Marquis de Lafayette finds himself transported to Mars while Silver John runs afoul of Madame Atomos. Captain Vampire is plagued by Irma Vep. The Highlander challenges the leader of the Black Coats. Rouletabille appears at the Old Bailey. Aramis clashes with the unearthly presence of Baal. Rocambole meets Zatoichi, Honey West teams up with the Nyctalope, and Fantômas pays his debt to the King in Yellow.

Also starring Arsène Lupin, Felifax, Sâr Dubnotal, Harry Dickson, Teddy Verano, and many more.
