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!
