45 Years of 2000AD - The Best of Gerry Finley-Day

2000AD have announced a short tour of duty by writer Gerry Finley-Day to celebrate the release of the new collection, The Best of Gerry Finley-Day.

Gerry, who has made very few public appearances down the years, will be signing copies at four Forbidden Planet stores across the UK in early August.

One of the most prolific and inventive writers in British comics, Gerry’s work for 2000AD includes strips such as future war G.I. Rogue Trooper, “The Great Escape in space series, Harry 20 on the High Rock, the Star Wars-inspired V.C.’s – and the gritty 1970s take on the iconic Eagle character, Dan Dare.

Featuring art by Alan Davis (Captain Britain), Cam Kennedy (Star Wars), Dave Gibbons (Rogue Trooper), Ian Kennedy (Dan Dare), Mick McMahon (Judge Dredd), Garry Leach (Marvelman), The Best of Gerry Finley-Day contains just some of Gerry’s greatest work.
