G-Man’s highlights of 2016: Day 10 – Rok of the Reds

rok-of-the-reds

Any title that sees comic greats like Alan Grant & John Wagner working together again HAS to be something to take notice of and Black Hearted Press did just that with Rok of the Reds.

We’ve had four issues relased this year (Reviews of #1, 2, 3 & 4) and while a mix of sci-fi and football had me thinking “WTF??” it proved me wrong and then some.  Writing from Alan & John is as good as its ever been (probably what we’d expect) and BHP have done a stellar job on getting them together for this but to then combine the art from Dan Cornwell, colours from Abby Bulmer & the lettering from Jim Campbell seems like a master stroke with everyone involved bringing their ‘A’ game.  It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s ambitious and every aspect just seems to work at building a fresh story that makes me wish the wait between issues was even shorter and that’s while they are already pushing a fairly strict timeline for it’s release……two issues to go and I don’t really want this to end…..BRILLIANT read.
