Next month there's a brand new football comic hailing from Glasgow publisher BHP Comics when Rok of the Reds No.1 makes its debut. As you may have guessed from the cover, this is a football comic with a difference!
Created by John Wagner and Alan Grant, and scripted by John, Rok of the Reds is a six issue mini-series with fantastic art by Dan Cornwell, coloured by Abigail Bulmer and lettered by Jim Campbell. Interviewed in the latest issue of Comic Heroes, John Wagner said "It's not like anything else that Alan and I have done. There's a strong retro feel to it, a homage to the comics of our youth - but with the added twist of a rampaging alien".
The story is mostly still under wraps to avoid spoilers but what's known is it begins when arrogant footballer Kyle Dixon encounters an alien who has crash-landed on Earth.
It sounds like it's going to be an enjoyable comic, and with the talented creators it has onboard it's going to be well worth checking out. I've already pre-ordered my copy and you can too by following this link:
