« on: 10 October, 2019, 12:52:09 PM »
Not had a chance to read this as rushing to a meeting but the headlines makes it a keeper and worth sharing...

I'm assuming this is wonderful news. Could someone read it and fill me in!

Thanks for sharing. Basically Ennis will write a story for the Battle Special coming 2020

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Mike Dorey will draw the Ennis story. He told me how much he enjoyed The Boys on Amazon and had been sent a whole load of reference material by Garth.

From Rob Williams twitter feed: "ICYMI - Rebellion are bringing back BATTLE. Garth Ennis is writing Rat Pack for it and I've written 'Destroyer' a WW2 story."

Great stuff. Never thought I'd say it when he was stumbling through his early run on Dredd, but I can't think of a better choice of writer for it than Garth.
