New comic from Rebellion: SNIPER ELITE

Hot on the heels of The Vigilant special comes another new comic from Rebellion. Sniper Elite: Resistance is a monthly three-issue mini-series and the first issue goes on sale this Wednesday in newsagents and comic shops. 

Based on Rebellion's own video game, this is a war comic for older readers and, yes, the Battle logo in the corner box will be relevant as the series progresses. Wait and see!

* UK, NORTH AMERICA & DIGITAL: 29th August 2018 £2.99/$3.99

Based on the global best-selling Rebellion videogame, Sniper Elite: Resistance comes this adrenaline-fuelled thrill-ride 3-issue combat mini-series! Occupied France: Allied SOE hero Karl Fairburne parachutes into Angouleme in a bid to stop the shipment of a new German anti-aircraft weapon.

Always good to see more new comics from Rebellion, especially something with a regular release (though it won't stop some blinkered people claiming there's no UK industry) and while it wouldn't normally appeal, I'm intrigued by the Battle logo! After the one-off Misty/Scream, then its sequel announced, now a mini-series... I wonder if Rebellion are building to new regular ongoing comics?

It does seem that they're following the Titan Comics model of doing all-new American comic-sized titles for sale through comic shops in the USA and UK so let's hope they do more. They're going a step further than Titan by having them on sale in UK newsagents too. Something Titan only do with their DC reprints and UK editions of Doctor Who.

Maybe we'll see a Tom Thug comic yet! :D

Hi Lew

I thought initially that this title was only going through comicbook shops, has this actually been released on the High Street? Not seen any copies yet

Kind regards

Rebellion have said it'll be available in newsagents. I haven't had chance to go into town and check my local WH Smiths yet though.
