Not out yet. Also now called ROK of the Reds, due to the possibility of unwelcome legal attention from Hasbro over a certain Space Knight.

I think BHP are hoping to have #1 out late 2015 or early 2016.

Cheers

I've read #1 (because I lettered it) and it's great fun. Imagine Tharg demanded a Roy Of The Rovers-style strip for 2000AD from the Wagner and Grant droids. Dan Cornwell does a top job on the art and the artist formerly known as Abby Ryder delivers top- itch colours.

Cheers

I'm really looking forward to this, hopefully it gets released sooner rather than later.

Picked up a copy at the Capital Sci-Fi Con, and it's not bad.  As with all these things, it'll need a few issues to really rate it, but thus far it looks interesting with a sorta throwback feel.  Script wise rtoo early to tell as I mentioned, but it's Wagner and Grant, so I'm prepared to invest the time to find out.  Cornwell's art is nice, and suits the story (as I sede it the now anyway) very well. 

So yeah, go pick up a copy folks!

I'm going to overcome my loathing of the "beautiful" game and pick this up based solely on the creative team!  :D

Exactly how I felt dweezil.  It does look like it may be a good wee run though.

Ha, ha Ghost MacRoth!

Fingers crossed it's 2000ad-esque enough for me to quash my prejudices!   ;)

As I mentioned, it may be a bit early to properly judge, but the first issue was a decent read, no filler pages like the IDW stuff, pretty much cover to cover comic strip.  Worth 4 quid of anyone's money, and a wee half hour of yer time to read it.
