rougue-trooper-230x350Following their successful launch of Judge Dredd IDW are set to bring another 2000AD/Rebellion classic character to their roster, Rogue Trooper.

 The classic series was co-created by Gerry Finley-Day and artist Dave Gibbons, set in the far future where war has poisoned Nu- Earth’s atmosphere. In order to defeat their enemies the Norts the Southers create blue skinned genetically engineered soldiers named G.I’s to fight in the corrosive atmosphere. Someone betrays the G. I’s leading to them all being slaughtered by the Norts but for one survivor who now stalks the battle scarred landscape of Nu-Earth with vengeance on his mind.

 Alongside a new Rogue Trooper series set to start in 2014, IDW will be re-releasing the classic Rogue Trooper story in new full colour collections with colours provided by colourist Adrian Salmon.
