The Order: Die Mensch Machine

Book #1 of The Order
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

In 13th Century Germany, while reading the papers of her dead father young Anna Kohl uncovers a shocking secret - that defending Earth from an other-worldly menace is a secret cadre of warriors known only as The Order. Now she, and her father's rag-tag former comrades, must do battle with the sinister forces of these eldritch creatures! From Teutonic Knights with robot heads to gun-toting warriors in high speed pursuits on the streets of Elizabethan Engand, The Order is an incredible genre mash-up of medieval and Renaissance history, action movies, Michael Moorcock, Jack Vance, and Hammer Horror!
