The first volumes of Nemesis the Warlock and Rogue Trooper are now back in stock at 2000AD.com!
Two of 2000 AD‘s greatest characters, these mighty tomes feature stories that helped define the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and continue to influence comics years later.
Created by Pat Mills (Marshal Law) and Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), Nemesis the Warlock is an alien freedom fighter battling the extremist xenophobic regime of Thomas Torquemada in the cavenrous tunnels and space-spanning highways of Termight, the hollowed-out future Earth. The first volume of 2000 AD‘s groundbreaking and highly-influential series includes art by Bryan Talbot (Grandville) and Jesus Redondo (Monster) alongside O’Neill’s unbelievable character-driven world-building.
Rogue Trooper is the last surviving ‘genetic infantryman’, created by Gerry Finley-Day (The V.C.s) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) in 1981. With the disembodied personalities of his three comrades – Helm, Gunnar, and Bagman – embedded in his equipment, Rogue roams the poisoned wastelands of Nu-Earth in pursuit of the general who betrayed the GIs. With artwork by industry legends such as Gibbons, Cam Kennedy (Batman), Brett Ewins (Skreemer), and Colin Wilson (Star Wars), the first collection in the Tales of Nu-Earth series features some of the greatest and most striking moments in 2000 AD history. A live-action movie based on Finley-Day and Gibbons’ character is currently being developed by Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code)
