Explore the lives of some of XIII's most memorable characters

He was XIII's most dogged enemy from the start, but who really was the Mongoose, that mysterious assassin-for-hire who nearly killed the amnesiac hero so many times? During an encounter between him and Kim Rowland - an event that took place just before the start of the XIII series - the merciless hitman tells the story of his childhood and how he became a contract killer: 'Anyone would have in my circumstances', he claims. But would they? You be the judge.

A legendary adventure series now in its second cycle!

'A single volume per character. A different writer for each volume, teamed up with an artist he's never worked with before. Each keeping to their own personal style to create a story that will shine an unexpected light on an episode of the main series. In other words, a reinterpretation for all those who thought they had everything figured out. The game continues' - Jean Van Hamme
