Customer Review

on 13 March 2005
There's a lot of junk in 2000 AD's back catalogue but this classic future-war story from the mid-1980s is well worth a reprint. Part one is quintessential 2000 AD, bleakly humorous, furiously paced and able to think on the run. Milligan manages to give the cliché of a raw soldier who is drafted into a unit of insane veterans (see also The VCs) seem fresh. Bad Company are an excellent collection of weirdoes but the stars of the show are the villains, the Krool. Utterly evil space-vivisectionists out to destroy the human race. They are given an original and eye-catching look by the excellent Ewins-McCarthy artwork. Part Two uses the cliché of the veteran assembling a multi-talented crew for a suicide mission. (see The ABC Warriors.) It's a sequel like Men in Black II, OK but we didn't really need it. Still, the crew are an entertaining bunch and the saga comes to an unexpected conclusion.
