Bad Company: First Casualties Signing at Gosh! in June

Bad Company Signing - Gosh June 2016London’s Gosh! will be hosting a signing with the stellar line-up of Peter MilliganRufus Dayglo and Jim McCarthy for the latest installment in the Bad Company series. The signing will be from 1-2.00pm on Saturday 4th June 2016.

Bad Company was originally created by Peter Milligan, Brett Ewins and Jim McCarthy, debuting in 2000AD in 1986. The story follows a young solider fighting in a war to defend his home planet. He is the only survivor of his platoon and  he ends up recruited into ‘Bad Company’, a group of misfit renegades.

Writer Peter Milligan returns to the series after a 13 year absence from the pages of 2000AD, joined by Rufus Dayglo on pencils, whose work on the title acts as a loving tribute to Brett Ewins (who sadly passed away in 2015) and Jim McCarthy, the original inker.
