Product Description

About the Author

One of the most prolific writers in the comic's history, Gerry Finley-Day holds a special place in many 2000 AD fans' hearts as the creator of classics like Rogue Trooper, Fiends of the Eastern Front and The V.C.s. A keen "ideas man", Finley-Day's concepts of the horrors future warfare had in store were key to both Rogue and The V.C.s' continuing popularity, ensuring that their recent return to the Galaxy's Greatest Comic was well-received. Finley-Day also scripted episodes of Judge Dredd and Dan Dare, and co-scripted much of Invasion! As a writer, McManus primarily contributed to the 3000 AD special, which imagined characters from Bill Savage, B.L.A.I.R. 1, Dan Dare, Flesh, Harlem Heroes, and Rogue Trooper in the far future, but he has also written for M.A.C.H. 0 and M.A.C.H. 1, Strontium Dog, a One-Off and several Future Shocks. His writing can also be seen in UK anthology A1. Co-creator of the classic Bad Company, Brett Ewins has also contributed to A.B.C. Warriors, Judge Anderson, Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and Universal Soldier. Beyond 2000 AD, Ewins was a co-founding editor of Deadline magazine, and co-pencilled and inked the hugely acclaimed Skreemer series. He also created Johnny Nemo, published by Cyberosia Publishing. Cam Kennedy is another hugely popular 2000 AD artist, having illustrated many Judge Dredd strips and co-created luckless wannabe creator Kenny Who? and the Taxidermist. A key early Rogue Trooper artist, he has also drawn Batman/Judge Dredd: Vendetta in Gotham, Judge Dredd, Tharg the Mighty, Tharg's Future Shocks, and The V.C.'s. His extracurricular work includes Axel Pressbutton, Batman, The Light and Darkness War, Lobo, Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Star Wars: Dark Empire 1 and 2. As well as working on Rogue Trooper, Boluda also provided the art on Time Twisters. Steve Dillon is a fan-favourite 2000 AD writer and artist, and the creator of both Hap Hazzard and the Irish Judge Joyce. His writing for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes Future Shocks and Rogue Trooper, while Dillon's pencils have graced A.B.C. Warriors, Bad Company, Judge Dredd, Harlem Heroes, Ro-Busters, Rogue Trooper and Tyranny Rex. Dillon shot to international superstardom as a result of his work on DC/Vertigo's Preacher, co-created with 2000 AD's Garth Ennis. As well as working on Rogue Trooper for 2000 AD Trevor Goring has also illustrated episodes of Dan Dare and Tharg's Future Shocks Aside from his own co-created Bad City Blue, Robin Smith has illustrated Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, One-Offs, Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog, Tharg the Mighty and Time Twisters. He is also the illustrator of Paradox Press' Green Candles, and is co-creator of The Bogie Man with John Wagner and Alan Grant..

Format: Paperback
I have fond memories of growing up on 2000AD ... Judge Dredd, Robo-Hunter, Tharg's Future Shocks, Ace Trucking, Nemesis The Warlock and, of course, Rogue Trooper. What a great childhood! But how do these books stack up over time? How do they read now? That's what I was determined to find out as I delved into Rogue Trooper: Tales Of Nu-Earth Volume 2.

Sadly I missed the first volume (which contained a lot of the gorgeous Dave Gibbons art I love), but Volume 2 was still a good a place to start. If memory serves correctly, I first came across Rogue in a 2000AD Annual given to me one Christmas. The character immediately struck a chord with me, partly due to Gibbons' amazing art (as mentioned above), but mostly because of the imagination of Gerry Finley-Day. In the creator blurbs at the back of the book, Gerry is referred to as a "keen ideas man" and this is certainly true of his work on Rogue Trooper. While dialogue may not be his area of expertise, his imagination and passion more than make up for it.

To give a quick rundown, Rogue is a G.I (Genetic Infantryman) bred to fight for the Southers in their ongoing struggle against the Norts. As clones, the G.I.'s all have the same blue-skinned, mohawked appearance and natural ability for war, but they are distinguished from one another by their unique bio-chips. The advantage of these bio-chips is that they allow soldiers to be re-spawned (or re-gened as they say in the book) as long as the bio-chips remain undamaged. This is a key factor in the book and plays into a lot of the stories.

As Volume 2 picks up, Rogue is living up to his name as a soldier on the run. Having been betrayed by the Traitor General, he is now the last of the G.I.

First read this as a teen in 2000AD and that wasn't yesterday. Just took a fancy to it and was nice to get all bundled up in one book (though I have the other 2 as well). Saves waiting a week for the next few pages, though having said that the anticipation was part of the excitement.

Quite a chunky book and not pocket sized. Art is original and stories too - happy times.

By thanasisk on 5 July 2011
Format: Paperback
If you are familiar with the Rogue Trooper saga then you already know what to expect. If not let's just say that Rogue Trooper combines sci-fi, classic ww2 action and a bit of US civil war in a whirlwind of fun back from the early 80s. The collection is indeed nice, and it revolves during the original Rogue Trooper (it is my understanding that 2000AD/Rebellion has tried more than once to continue and reboot the series with mixed reviews). While the quality of the paper and the binding are excellent, the transfer is not as crisp as the older reprints (which I used to own too!), which shows in some pages. This small issue notwithstanding, it still remains an excellent addition to any fan of 2000AD comics and I highly recommend it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 May 2010
Format: Paperback
Whilst Rogue Trooper is a well known UK phenom thanks to 2000AD, to many people outside it may be a tad confusing. In short Rogue Trooper is the only surviving genetically engineered soldier who fight's on Mankind's side whilst trying to solve the mystery of who betrayed his fellow soldiers in an enemy massacre. It's a great look at the struggles of wartime and when you add into it a rich underlying theme to each battle its going to grab many readers by the cahones and keep them glued. Definitely a graphic novel that I'm recommending to all fans of authors like John Scalzi, Robert Heinlen and Joe Halderman.
