Nippur de Lagash
Nippur de Lagash (English: Nippur from Lagash) is an Argentine historic comic series set in the 23rd century BC (according to the short chronology), about a fictional homonym warrior of Sumer, created by comic scriptwriter Robin Wood and illustrated by Lucho Olivera. It was published by Columba Publishing on the D'Artagnan and later Nippur Magnum comic books from 1967 to 1998, and is considered one of the most important Argentine comics.
Nippur's adventures, loosely framed on actual history, start when he is a general and military leader of Lagash, who is forced to escape from Mesopotamia after its invasion, carried out by Lugal-Zage-Si. He then wanders around the bronze age known world, the Middle East and east Mediterranean, making friends and enemies, before taking part on the Akkadian conquest of the Fertile Crescent. Thus does Nippur become king of Lagash, but he chooses to abdicate and comes back to travel.
