Bad Company - First Casualties.... OUT TODAY!

I'm thrilled to announce our new series BAD COMPANY - FIRST CASUALTIES is out today...

It's been a long time in the making...with an initial idea that Brett Ewins and I had over a decade ago.
Since then it morphed and evolved, and today it's out on the comics stands.

Jump on board in 2000ad prog 1950, 30 Sep. 2015.

Peter Milligan has written a kick arse adventure, with enough action for Veterans of the first Ararat war, and sharp enough for new readers to jump on board, and then go back and rediscover the incredible older series.

Thanks To Peter, Jim McCarthy, and Tharg our alien editor and his Eathlet counterpart, Matt Smith for making this series happen.
We lost Brett earlier this year... and I know he was excied about seeing his boys back in action, where they belong, causing trouble, raising a smile, and questioning authority...

This one's you you Brett.

Over the weekend I'll post up a blog with doodles and prelim art, showing the process... and evolution of the series.
Over at you can here Peter and I talk about the new series.

Fall in troopers, there's a war coming....

Rufus Dayglo,
1C Trooper in Bad Company

Last Gang in Town from DC VERTIGO!

As announced yesterday by DC VERTIGO at SDCC,  my new series, Last Gang in Town will be starting this December, with the amazing Simon Oliver writing, and Rob Davis doing the covers!!
I’m really happy to be working on this series, about a buncha Punk Rockers in ’76 and beyond, who really do wanna create a little Anarchy in the UK.
Now, more than ever do we need that sort of anger back again…. And I want this series to have that irreverence  and two fingers up to the all the bastards who want to keep you down.
It’s our love letter to Punk, to all my amazing buddies, and to anyone who’s ever been the under dog… Our day will come!
Hope you’ll jump on board and crank up the volume with us.
Ruf, and the Last Gang in Town.
