Bad Company: Kano is part 2 of the Bad Company story, the first part which is incorporated in "Goodbye Krool World" which is an essential collectors item for any 2000AD or graphic novel afficionado. The graphics are almost as good here, but the story wanders, retreading old ground. The depths of Kano's inner conflicts are plumbed, and it just leads more firmly to the conclusion that the best material was in the first volume. If you love volume 1 you should get this for completeness, but get vol 1 first.
Volume 1 = 5 STARS
Volume 2 = 3 STARS
Book 1 details the wonderful story of Danny Franks and his recruitment into Kano's Bad Company on planet Arrat. The second half of book 2 involves a quest by Danny Franks to destroy the Krool heart ending the reign of the Krool. It is in black and white. It begins at prog 500-519, 548-557, 576-585.
To clarify, book 2 is in mixed colour and black and white, depending on the original episodes as they appeared in the pages of 2000AD progs 828-837, and 1273-1277. It involves two separate stories, one involving Kano on a strange planet with ghosts of his former Bad Company colleages, then in a mission to return and confront Danny Franks, who became the Krool heart at the end of book 1.
Book 1 is fantastic. Get that book and then think twice about book 2.
