SCIENCE FICTION GRAPHIC NOVEL REVIEW: Rogue Trooper: Tales of Nu Earth Vol 2 - Gerry Finley-Day, Dave Gibbons


Nu-Earth, a planet ravaged by war, its atmosphere poisoned by chemical weapons. In this battle ground between the Norts and The Southers only the Genetic Infantrymen can survive. Rogue is one such soldier, and these are his tales...

Published in the same format as the best-selling Judge Dredd Case Files series.


Whilst Rogue Trooper is a well known UK phenom thanks to 2000AD, to many people outside it may be a tad confusing. In short Rogue Trooper is the only surviving genetically engineered soldier who fight’s on Mankind’s side whilst trying to solve the mystery of who betrayed his fellow soldiers in an enemy massacre. It’s a great look at the struggles of wartime and when you add into it a rich underlying theme to each battle its going to grab many readers by the cahones and keep them glued. Definitely a graphic novel that I’m recommending to all fans of authors like John Scalzi, Robert Heinlen and Joe Halderman.
