Description

THE GALAXY'S GREATEST 'IDEAS' MAN!

From the very beginning of his career working on girl's comics for DC Thomson, it was clear that Gerry Finley-Day was a writer who oozed creative genius. Both editing and writing for IPC's Tammy, he transformed the title with riveting tales including the fondly remembered Slaves of War Orphan Farm.

But it was on the boy's titles where he made the biggest impact, starting on Battle with strips such as The Sarge, and Hellman of Hammer Force for Action.

The work that he produced for seminal UK sci-fi comic 2000 AD really highlight how Finley-Day lives and breathes ideas. This collection showcases some of his best-known strips, including instalments from Rogue Trooper, The VC's, Dan Dare and the complete Harry Twenty on the High Rock.

About Gerry Finley-Day

One of the most prolific writers in the comic's history, Gerry Finley-Day holds a special place in many 2000 AD fans' hearts as the creator of classics like Rogue Trooper, Fiends of the Eastern Front and The V.C.s, as well as Harry 20 on the High Rock and Ant Wars.
A keen "ideas man", Finley-Day's concepts of the horrors future warfare had in store were key to both Rogue and The V.C.s' continuing popularity, ensuring that their recent return to the Galaxy's Greatest Comic was well-received.
Finley-Day also scripted episodes of Judge Dredd and Dan Dare, and co-scripted much of Invasion! (and entirely scripted the prequel story, 'Disaster 1990!').
