4.0 out of 5 stars Great artwork, two dimensional story lines, 7 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Tales of Nu-Earth (Rogue Trooper) (Paperback)
Although I mainly read 'Warlord', 'Battle' and sometimes 'Victor'when I was growing up, I had a few 2000AD comics and remembered the artwork from Rogue Trooper, so bought this compilation volume.

The artwork is superb and the equipment still looks believable 30 years from when it was imagined and drawn. The Genetic Infantryman (GI)concept was also really good, with the chips from his dead buddies embedded in his combat gear.

I have stalled a bit with reading this due to the repetitive story lines and cheesiness (a nurse called 'Sister Sledge' for example...), and the somewhat two dimensional characters throughout, especially the caricature baddies with pseudo- German accents the Norts. I was pleasantly surprised to re- read some of the 'Commando' and 'Charley's war'comic reprints and discover that the story lines and characters were still gripping, imaginative and unpredictable to an adult, so it's not just a case of me judging a comic strip aimed at children 30 years ago by the tastes of an adult now.

This volume is worth the money just for the artwork, but I don't think I'd wade through the other two volumes.

Very good if you enjoy this stuff / not so if you don't...
Depends where you sit on this one / if you have read 2000ad and like it, then buy it
