KINGDOM collected

Richard Elson built up a following for his excellent artwork on Sonic the Comic in the 1990s (where he was a pleasure to write scripts for) and these days he's a regular artist on 2000AD, no doubt entertaining some of those same readers who read STC when they were younger. 

Next week, Rebellion are collecting the Aux Drift story arc of Kingdom into a graphic novel. Illustrated by Richard Elson and written by Dan Abnett it had previously appeared in 2000AD. Here's the info from the publisher, along with a preview of the first few pages from one of the best artists working in British comics today.

Genetically modified dog-soldier Gene the Hackman wages war against giant insects in a Mad Max future. In the far future, mankind has been all but destroyed and survivors are forced to hide from "Them" - giant insectile creatures that have taken over the world - with only savage genetically engineered dog-soldiers like Gene the Hackman to guard them. Having travelled the Earth without his pack, Gene now leads a band of mongrel "aux" warriors known as the Wild Bunch. They live alongside some human survivors in The Kingdom. But "Them" are growing in number and the Kingdom is getting harder to defend!
