Last week BHP released some preview images of Rom of the Reds and with John Wagner & Alan Grant involved…….that’s GOT to be worth a closer look.
Grant & Wagner may be best known for classic strips like Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Judgement on Gotham & Lobo but for me they’re responsible for one of my all-time favourite releases with The Bogie Man. After hearing the news that they’d be working together on sci-fi tale through Black Hearted Press I wasn’t alone at being hyped at the potential a title from these two legends could hold.
Rom of the Reds will be a six part series about what happens when the lives of a dangerous intergalactic refugee and an arrogant footballer collide. With his home world destroyed, Rom of Arkadi is on the run and needs a hiding place. And that hiding place happens to be troubled football star Kyle Dixon…
It sounds like the kind of story they’d write and it’s even better to hear that Rom of the Reds will feature their trademark black humour and twisted sense of fun. Newcomer Dan Cornwell was handpicked to do the art and looking at those pages below he’s doing a great job on this title…….and it just can’t come quick enough.
