A story so wild it could only be true... maybe...

The never-before-told tale of Adolf Hitler's secret child and how this son was the key to ending World War II is now revealed in this audacious graphic novel based upon one of history's most intriguing rumors.

In 1944 Occupied France, a rogue British agent reveals to a baker's young assistant the true identity of his father, thus recruiting him for a dangerous mission that will end the greatest threat of World War II.

Out of respect to the innocent and the dead all the names in this story have been changed...

Except for one.

    Son of Hitler is nothing like what I was expecting. Honestly, I don't know what I was expecting, but I know it wasn't this. Despite that, I was pleasantly surprised as I found it to be a character-driven thriller that kept me constantly guessing what was going to happen next. On top of that, it's an emotional gut-punch of a book that forces you to care about characters, even when you cannot condone their actions. It takes you down some dark alleys and consistently surprises you with some of the turns that it takes, but the ride never ceases to be engaging and compelling. Read Full Review

    While the plot has its confusing moments and some of the characterization suffers a bit, the overall experience of SON OF HITLER is a surprisingly good one. With a fantastic homage to 1940's art and a high intensity story, this is definitely one to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Mickey Rivera Apr 19, 2018

    Regardless of any allegations of actually blood relations, Del Col and Moore's Son of Hitler is more about exploring what it means to deal with the more problematic aspects of family's heritage. How much of yourself can you say is truly yours, and how much is inherited from your genetic past? In about 200 pages of suspenseful storytelling, Son of Hitler looks for answers. Read Full Review

    Geekery Magazine - Robert Swanson Jul 10, 2018

    Overall this spy thriller comic book is worth your hard earned money. The team that created this both can walk away from this knowing they created a fun story that plays out like any great spy movie. It takes a special group of people to do this, but Son of Hitler has that team behind it, and that is why it shines so bright. If nothing else do yourself a favor and get the book. I promise once you finish it, you will want to reread it, to see what you missed the first time. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Sam King May 1, 2018

    The story inside is worth checking out even if it leaves some questioning of particular plot elements. The shifts and reveals are intriguing, and I had a pretty good time reading it. I don't think it will be the graphic novel of the year, but it was a good read. Read Full Review
