Product Description


"Blaze of Glory" follows a new Mobile Infantry unit, Tamari's Tigers, and the fortunes of yet another raw recruit in the war against the bugs - William Tanner. The Tigers are sent on a recon mission to find out what has happened to an outpost only to discover Alamo Bay deserted and a recently arrived bug invasion swarm. You've read the book. You've watched the TV series. You've seen the movie. You know by heart the tale of Rico, Dizzy and Carmen. But in the war against the bugs, there is more than just one unit...Welcome to the world of Tamari's Tigers. Following the Pluto Campaign, the Tigers are sent on what seems to be a simple search and retrieval mission - a research base called Alamar Bay - but what they find there is far more than they ever imagined - a base overrun with bugs, a planet swarming with the enemy, and a band of survivors who will kill to save their secret research material. And for Trooper Will Tannen, fresh from boot camp, he finds that things aren't the same as the recruitment programmes, as his friends die around him, his sergeant seems traitorious, and his very life is in jeopardy..."

Starship Troopers - Alamo Bay" is the first book in the "Blaze Of Glory" trilogy, chartering the rise, fall and rebirth of Will Tannen, a trilogy that has already been described as 'Sharpe in space'. Written by X-Men writer Tony Lee and drawn by Transformers Artist Paul Ridgon and Warhammer artist Jim Brady, this is a must for every fan of the book, TV series or Movies. This trilogy will give you new characters to care about as well as bringing in cameos from favourites from the original material, like Zim, Rico and Ibanez.

Mr. Heinlein would be proud! 18 Dec 2006
By K. Reid - Published on Amazon.com
This graphic novel does an excellent job of bring new life into the classic military sci-fi novel. By combining elements of all three incarnations of the story (The original book, the movie and the cg tv series) the arthurs and artists create a great and enjoyable experience that stays true to the original book that started it all. I highly recommend this to all sci-fi military fans, even those not into graphic novels!
