Description

Warrior and ace robotic sniper, Joe Pineapples, looks back over his life as he seeks to unravel the mystery and the meaning behind an I.D. plate that he has carried around since his days as an X-terminator fighting in the Volgan War.

About Pat Mills

Pat Mills' writing and editorial career started in Dundee, working for DC Thomson on the teenage romance magazine Romeo. Later Mills went freelance and started a long relationship with IPC Magazines, initially writing for girl's titles like Tammy, Pink and Sandy. He was an assistant editor on Tammy, the publication which began the comic revolution. Then, with Malcolm Shaw, he did some preliminary work devising Jinty before moving over to rejuvenate boy's comics. He created Battle (with John Wagner), Action, Misty and 2000 AD (featuring Judge Dredd). Other notable works include Marshal Law, Third World War in Crisis, the title series for Doctor Who Weekly and Requiem Vampire Knight. He has also recently written several books including Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave!, a history of 2000 AD and Serial Killer with artist Kevin O' Neill, a darkly comedic thriller.

Simon Bisley occupies an almost unique place in 2000 AD history, as one of the first UK artists to popularise the fully-painted style pioneered by Argentinian artist Alberto Brecchia. His highly dynamic artwork made his two major series in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic - A.B.C. Warriors: The Black Hole and Slaine: The Horned God - very popular, as they remain to date. He also illustrated Heavy Metal Dredd in the Megazine, an ultra-graphic, adults-only take on the lawman, before going on to pencil the hugely successful first Batman/Judge Dredd crossover story, Judgement on Gotham. Bisley has provided countless pin-ups and short pieces across an astonishing variety of comics, from legendary fantasy anthology Heavy Metal to anarchic DC superhero series Lobo, and has an even more extensive CV in Europe, where his painted style enjoys enormous success.
