The Last Shangri-La title.jpg
After digging through the rubble of Daniel Linderman's private archives, Hana Gitelman is closer than ever to obtaining critical information about The Company. Answers to her questions lie with a mysterious man named "Drucker", a rogue associate of the Founders. A new Hero is introduced when Hana enlists the help of her allies, and a wanderer named "Trav" answers the call.

Summary

In Goa, Traveler is asked by Hana Gitelman to deliver a message to a man named Drucker in the Kingdom of Bhutan. He enters the country, and easily adapts to his surroundings thanks to his command of languages. Traveling on foot, he soon reaches a village in the mountains. Upon leaving, Traveler falls down an incline and injures himself. He shouts for help before passing out.

When Traveler awakens, he is in a warm bed, tended to by Buddhist monks. A man in grey, whom Traveler believes to be Drucker, asks for Traveler's message. Traveler informs him that his message is from Hana Gitelman, to whom Drucker is related.

Notes

  • A link to this interactive novel was sent in a message from Hana.
  • This novel must be loaded as an interactive version for viewing as a printable format was not provided. Each page of the interactive version contains an animation with additional content.
  • This graphic novel is numbered as 57b since it came after issue #57 and before issue #58. However, this graphic novel was released the same week as issue #58.
  • Shangri-La is a fictional place described by James Hilton in his 1933 novel Lost Horizon. The term has become a symbol of Earthly paradise, utopia, and isolated retreat. More specifically, the term refers to a mythical Himalayan utopia.
  • On January 18, 2008, the Richard Drucker page at NBC.com was updated to read, "In the January 7 graphic novel, a shocking revelation came to light... the man we thought was Richard Drucker was actually his personal pilot, Goose Hampton. The real Richard Drucker died in a plane crash years ago." This means the person Traveler meets is Goose, not Richard Drucker.
  • This was the only graphic novel until From the Files of Primatech, Part 1 not to have an Easter Egg.
