Rebellion Releases — 4 August 2021

This isn’t your grandad’s war comic – never had there been an anti-hero quite like Hellman of Hammer Force!

Collected for the first time, and from the very beginning, the legendary strip from the pages of the controversial 1970s comic, Action, is available in a standard paperback and never-to-be-reprinted hardcover website exclusive edition!

Major Kurt Hellman is a Panzer commander during the 1940 German invasion of Belgium. But this man is no Nazi – he avoids taking life wherever possible, all while facing foes without and treachery within!

This groundbreaking series of thrilling combat is written by Gerry Finley-Day (Rogue Trooper) and drawn by Mike Dorey (Ro-Busters). To be published in December, Hellman will be available as a limited (to 200 copies) edition hardcover, priced £20.00. There is also a mass market softcover edition, priced £12.99. Both are available to pre-order now from the Treasury of British Comics web shop.

Bad City Blue by Alan Grant & Robin Smith
Rebellion ISBN 978-178108970-5, 4 August 2021, 58pp, £7.99. [DIGITAL RELEASE ONLY]

The city was dying. It was dying hard and dying ugly. Armed gangs ruled, and even the cops didn’t dare go in – ‘cept for guys like Blue. Beneath a vast glass dome, the totally self-contained floating conurbation of Bader City has been built into an asteroid – but life is hard for those in the ‘darkside’. Ninety per cent of the city is now slum, now dubbed ‘Bad City’ – a crumbling, decaying ghetto cursed by power cuts, burst water mains, and grinding poverty. Far away from the health and wealth of the topside, armed gangs control the darkside and only guys like Blue - a trouble-shooting ‘button man’ who enforces order at the behest of the top-siders – dare patrol its streets. Anyone starts trouble and Blue starts shooting. He’s saving the city for 'decent folk' … or is he? Blue discovers that not all is at it seems in Bader City and the intentions of the elite are not as benevolent as he once though. Created by writer Alan Grant and artist Robin Smith, Bad City Blue combines Escape From New York with Silent Running and a strong class message that’s trademark Grant, along with probably the bleakest ending you could imagine!
