The army of Hades has descended upon Sanctuary, and Athena's Knights face new horrors at every turn. The Gold Knights killed in past battles have returned as undead warriors of Hades. And with them come even more powerful Specters, supernatural beings sent by Hades to enslave the world of the living. But for the defenders of Sanctuary, defeat is t an option. Roshi, ancient leader of the Gold Knights, reveals a secret power granted by Athena in the last Battle of the Gods. Shaka, the Virgo Knight, unleashes his sacred Buddhist powers upon the unholy invaders. And the Bronze Knights--Seiya, Hyoga, Shiryu and Shun--are ready to leap into the fray and prove themselves the equals of the greatest of Athena's Knights!
Masami Kurumada has gained world-wide recognition with his KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC (Saint Seiya) manga, which has been translated into several languages and was a major hit in South America and Europe. KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC was originally intended as a boys title but the incredible artwork and slightly feminine looking male characters drew in female readers as well. The manga was first serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, then went to span 28 graphic novels, 114 anime episodes, 4 movies, a very successful toy line, and a videogame!
