Out now! SNIPER ELITE: RESISTANCE graphic novel

The three-issue Sniper Elite: Resistance mini series, recently published by Rebellion, has been collected into a graphic novel that is available from this week. 

Rebellion are really dominating the UK comics market these days, with their superb line of books collecting classic British strips, their numerous 2000AD graphic novels, the Vigilant and Scream and Misty specials, the excitingly new Roy of the Rovers books, and of course the ongoing 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine titles. Sniper Elite: Resistance was very interesting in that it was sold in newsagents, proving that it is possible to convince WH Smith to stock a mini series. Let's hope more brand new comics follow suit next year!

Sniper Elite is also interesting in that it's a damn good story, and well illustrated. Sporting the old Battle logo as an imprint, it's a worthy modern day successor to that well-loved comic.
