Cam Kennedy: Rogue Trooper: Fort Neuro TPB Cover (2005 Reprint) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 17 MAR 2012

Rogue Trooper from the British 2000 AD catalogue has certainly seen a number of different incarnations over the years, but more importantly, has had some particularly awesome tales about this driven, bio-engineered genetic infantryman and his disembodied comrades published. One such classic that has seen a number of reprints is of course the lengthy Fort Neuro storyline, written by Gerry Finley-Day with art by Brett Ewins and Cam Kennedy.

Of course, whenever the story Fort Neuro gets bandied about, it has to go hand in hand with this absolutely legendary piece of Rogue Trooper cover art released in 1993 from Mr. Cam Kennedy himself! Yup, definitely can’t get any cooler than this…

Bart Sears and Mark Pennington: Rogue Trooper #15 Cover (1987) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 14 JAN 2012

Although a staple in the comic book market back home in Britain, 2000 AD has always traditionally struggled to get a proper foothold or even liking in the American comic book market, though it certainly hasn’t been for the lack of trying. In the 1980’s Quality Comics decided to produce a full colour reprint and repackaging of some classic 2000 AD Rogue Trooper stories for a wider market, ending up with a 37 issue run on their hands and more importantly, introducing some great cover art from the now comic book veteran, Bart Sears.

And as you can see for yourself, picking Sears (with a little help from inker Mark Pennington) to do the classic lone soldier depiction was certainly an inspired choice!
