: Rok Of The Reds
: broodblik 03 March, 2021, 04:37:49 AM
I have backed the kickstarter for Rok the God. It was a great read. Now I see that Rok Of The Reds is finally available in digital format and my question is, is it worthwhile getting if you have already read Rok the God? I am quite tempted since this is John Wagner for crying out loud.

If you enjoyed RtG, I can't imagine you wouldn't enjoy 'Reds'. The scale is smaller — less space stuff, more stuff on Earth, possibly a little more football, but the tone is largely the same with the balance between humour and action. Dan's art and Abby's colours are marvellous throughout.

Everyone should own Rok of the Reds (and Rok the God) to not do so reduces your humanity.

Dan Cornwell als has some art for sale at the moment from his Facebook page - but please don't look as I'm still making my mind up about which page I want...

The only problem is to get it on my iPad to read, so up in the clouds we go

Where is it in digital? Is it DRM-free (CBR or PDF)? I’d like to buy it, but need it to be usable in a reader I can tolerate.

It is in a PDF format. Quite big almost 1GB

Direct from the website, too, which presumably means the creators get more money. I’ll add that to the forward list.

For those who have not got this yet, get it, it's really good fun.
