Clone war! Nu-Earth, a planet ravaged by war, its atmosphere poisoned by chemical weapons. In this battle-scarred landscape, the Norts and Southers fight where only the Genetic Infantrymen can survive unaided. Rogue is one such soldier, and these are his tales... Created by Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), this series features the earliest stories surrounding one of 2000 AD's best-loved characters, all in color for the very first time!

    I got to say that I had a hell of a time reading this collection. It was wonderful and I ended up reading it a couple of more times. What I found is that nothing changed with each reading. It remained just as strong and powerful as before, which is a sign of a very good work. This one is definitely worth the time and investment, along with the new renderings too. IDW, you guys are kicking it like a Hellstreak. Read Full Review

    So where to even begin with this one… OK try and picture a war movie like ‘Platoon' but with a blue super soldier as the main character, and that is the crux of Rogue Trooper here.It shows the grit and brutality of war ,like Platoon, only elevated into the science fiction realm with our main character a genetically created super soldier who along with other soldiers like him fight in a far off future war. Gradually they fall, leaving him, however his teams brainwaves are stored in chips and from that point act as AI that help him in battle.It is epic stuff here and deserved of the title classics, and the newly printed colors in this version really bring out Dave Gibbons action packed panels.There isn't really anything in this I can fault and following IDW's Dredd Classics, it would seem that these IDW reprints were a canny idea.

    If you've been enjoying Judge Dredd Classics or the new Rogue Trooper series, this one is well worth picking up. Great stories and art, mixed with some fantastic coloring makes this a really great blast from the past. Read Full Review
