Rok of the Reds #1 (BHP Comics) Out Now!
Rok of the Reds (BHP Comics)
John Wagner & Alan Grant (w) Dan Cornwell (a)
A dying planet. A spaceship heads heads towards Earth containing a sole survivor. Except he's not what he seems. An alien shape-shifter reverts to his real form and blames himself for the deaths of countless lifeforms on the shattered planet.
Meanwhile on planet Earth Rok Dixon is playing up of the field again as he gets a "yellow card" and then a "red card" and is sent off the pitch.
And goes off the rails in the style of all those overpaid, egotistical footballer types we read about in the red top tabloids.
Drunk and friendless he sees a UFO.
The story begins.....
An Excellent beginning to a new mini-series by British publisher BHP Comics based in Glasgow. Offered in Previews UK a couple of months back this finally arrived in my subscription pile this week. I'm not a fan of football, but add aliens and my interest is piqued.
And I wasn't disappointed.
