Product Description

About the Author

Pat Mills is the creator and first editor of 2000 AD. For the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he is the writer and co-creator of ABC Warriors, Finn, Flesh, Nemesis the Warlock, Slaine, M.A.C.H 1, Harlem Heroes and Savage. He also developed Judge Dredd and wrote one of the early Dredd serials, The Cursed Earth. He wrote Third World War for Crisis!, a politically charged spin-off from 2000 AD, and Black Siddha for the Judge Dredd Megazine. Outside 2000 AD he is the writer and co-creator of the long-running classic anti-war story Charley's War, as well as Marshal Law. He has also written for the Batman, Star Wars and Zombie World series for the US market. Currently Mills is writing the bestselling series Requiem - Vampire Knight for Editions Nickel of France with artist Olivier Ledroit and a spin-off series Claudia - Vampire with artist Frank Tacito. He is also completing the graphic novel version of American Reaper co-created with Clint Langley, based on his screenplay for Xingu Films. Clint Langley began his 2000 AD career with the fully painted artwork of his co-created series Dinosty, and has also illustrated Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Outlaw, Sinister Dexter and Tales of Telguuth. However, it is the striking mixture of fully painted art and digital manipulation on Slaine and the ABC Warriors which has made him a firm favourite with fans. As well as working for 2000 AD Langley has produced covers for Games Workshop and Marvel (with striking covers for The Punisher, Wolverine and Ghost Rider amongst others), produced art for World of Warcraft and Magic: The Gathering, and is the winner of the 2007 Inquest Gamer Fan Awards for Best Artist.

The ABC Warriors were some of the most memorable (after Dredd) creations of 2000AD and I felt like seeing how they're faring these days after a 30 year gap. The colour photo-montage design, rather than pen and ink, is so different it takes some getting used to. It works in creating a frozen battlefield hell-hole that the land around the River Volga has become.
There is some clever play on Russian and Soviet design for the Volgans including the Ikon who has a hammer for one hand and a sickle for the other and an onion-domed headpiece. Captives are placed on his anvil-like body for sacrifice.
This is a kind of prequel (retcon or retroactive continuity) as The ABC Warriors tell tales to each other of their involvement in the Volgan War which was introduced in Prog 1 of 2000AD in the Invasion story and in the very first ABC Warriors.
Hammerstein tells of his battle against the giant Stalin robots. Mongrol recants how his parachute failed to open and he was smashed to pieces only to be rebuilt by a friendly. Joe remembers his mission to assassinate the Ikon.
These stories are wrapped inside the retirement of Mek-Quake into the Broadband Asylum.
There is also a cool new recruit - Zippo - whose head is just like a napalm-throwing brand of lighter.
This is a quick read with not much text and a number of full-page spreads. I would encourage readers to perhaps borrow it from the library to see if its dark style floats your boat.

These Volgan Wars books are too slim for my taste. I'd rather have one thick book of all of them. Plotwise, the antiwar context is resonably strong reminding me of Pat Mill's magnificently incitefull "Third World War" strip for "Crisis" - but the specific adventures in the first two volumes at least are unremarkable and pointless. Chris Langley's photoshp art (the limitations of which which I discuss in my "Slaine:The Wanderer" review) is better suited to the material here tone and contentwise, but remains less attractive than the early Invasions art. Less bikini babes, basically. The high tech battle scenes work reasonably well and the style is certainly distinctive. The full page spreads of robot heads aren't attractive or menacing, though, just drab. If you like the ABC Warriors, this trundles on. Bickering bots, lame puns, silly names, mechanical mayhem. Its all here; but is it really enough? Not for me, but YMMV.

I picked this up as a birthday present for my son (11). He has a love of all things 2000AD and this was a great gift for him. The artwork is superb and the storyline is up there with the best. I recall it from my youth but for him this was all new and he loved it.
