OUT NOW! – Major Eazy: The Italian Campaign

Sauntering from the pages of the groundbreaking Battle, the earliest stories of Major Eazy have been collected in order for the first time!

Major Eazy Vol. 1 : The Italian Campaign is available to order from treasuryofbritishcomics.com and from all good book and comic book stores.

Created by Alan Hebden (Rat Pack) and Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd), Major Eazy is a laconic, laid-back British Army officer during the Second World War who has a total disregard for authority or protocol. Based on actor James Coburn’s performance in The Magnificent Seven, Eazy was one of the most popular characters from Battle, his irreverence and coolness under pressure earning him legions of fans as he went on to command the band of convict commandos know as the Rat Pack.

Major Eazy: The Italian Campaign takes readers from the pulse-pounding invasion of Sicily to the German surrender at Brenner Pass, collecting all of his adventures in the Italian theatre. Rebellion’s experienced reprographics team has also restored all of the strip’s colour pages, which have never before been reprinted.

This 128-page collection – available in paperback and exclusive treasuryofbritishcomics.com hardcover – is the first in a two-volume series that will collect Eazy’s (mis)adventures!

OUT NOW: Hugo Pratt’s ‘Night of the Devil’

The fourth in a major series of new collections bringing the long lost UK war comics of master artists back to print!

This new collection contains two exciting and explosive war stories lushly illustrated by Hugo Pratt, comics legend and creator of iconic character, Corto Maltese.

In ‘Night of the Devil’, take a hallucinatory trip through the oppressive heat of the Burmese jungle along with British soldiers engaged in desperate skirmishes with the enemy.

In ‘Bayonet Jungle’, Private Jack Green’s presence is seen as an omen of bad luck but he struggles to prove himself to the experienced soldiers of Third Platoon as they fight against the Japanese army that surrounds them.

Presented in a larger format than originally published to better show off Pratt’s incredible artwork. This volume differs from others in this line as it focuses presents on Burma, an arena of the Second World War rarely chronicled, especially in comics.

These stunning ‘lost’ stories have never been reprinted and are a real eye-opener to fans of Pratt’s work as they form a missing link in his artistic journey.

‘The Angry Planet’ first collection from new series, ‘The Fleetway Files’

Rebellion and Hibernia Comics is pleased to announce The Fleetway Files – a new series in association with The Treasury of British comics which aims to present the very best of Fleetway comics and build into an unmissable collection!

The first release in this series is a lost classic, Alan Hebden and Massimo Belardinelli’s The Angry Planet – collected from the pages of Tornado and never before reprinted! This perfect bound 90-page collection retails at £10.49 and is available to order now.

BUY THE FLEETWAY FILES NOW >>

Tornado (originally titled Heroes until a last-minute name change dictated by IPC management) was launched as a companion to 2000 AD and was designed to be a mixed-content adventure comic. It included strips that spanned genres and time periods like Blackhawk, Captain Klep, Victor Drago (the detective Sexton Blake in all but name, thanks to a copyright issue) and The Mind of Wolfie Smith. It was not to last however and Tornado merged into 2000 AD after just 22 issues.

The Angry Planet featured in all 22 issues, but unlike Wolfie Smith and Blackhawk it concluded in the pages of Tornado. A sequel titled Mars Force was planned, which was to be set 50 years after the end of The Angry Planet and Belardinelli drew several pages which featured a new set of characters designed by Brian Bolland. Sadly, it never materialised.

The Angry Planet touches on themes such as resource scarcity and corporate control that remain relevant today, but at heart it’s a rollercoaster sci-fi tale about rebellion. So, dive straight in and be blown away by Hebden’s usual hard-nosed characters and dynamic script and cover to cover with Belardinelli’s astonishing artwork as you join the first-generation Martians and their efforts to overthrow the dastardly Mars Inc.!

Collected from the pages of Tornado, this perfect bound 90-page collection retails at £10.49.
