RedRok Comics - Rok the God - Cover

Ahead of the launch of a much-anticipated Kickstarter to fund the next “Rok of the Reds” story Rok the God, the team behind the project have announced a free digital version of Chapter One will be accessible to all on Rok’s forthcoming Kickstarter (October 2nd – mark the date!).

But for those who just can’t wait, a special 20-page “ashcan” edition is now available in print – – just message Rok of the Gods artist Dan Cornwell on Facebook and he’ll send it to you direct, price £4 plus postage costs.

Anyone who orders the ashcan will receive a voucher for £4 off the eventual graphic novel. (This won’t be valid for any Kickstarter reward, so don’t forget to check out the Rok the God Kickstarter when it launches).

For those of you who came in late, Rok of the Reds is the creation of industry legends John Wagner and Alan Grant (Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Judgement on Gotham) teaming up with artist Dan Cornwell once again to bring you another action-packed, cosmos-spanning adventure.

The upcoming crowdfunder for Rok of the Gods will offer some amazing goodies including a Brian Bolland variant cover; a poster and original art from Simon Bisley; an amazing Neil Blackbird Sims ROK of Arkady Statuette – available to just one backer, so be quick, if you back the project to the tune of £300; original Dan Cornwell sketches – and much more!
