Ennis writing Rat Pack for Battle Special
« 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!

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.

Both Garth and Rob were talking about this at the Lakes Comic Con, its very much happening!
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed
