Rebellion announces Sniper Elite: Resistance mini series

Sniper Elite: Resistance #1

Based on the global bestselling videogame, Sniper Elite: Resistance is the brand new comic book from 2000AD publishers Rebellion.

This high-octane three-issue US-format mini-series, written by Keith Richardson and with art from Patrick Goddard (Savage), launches 29th August 2018.

Sniper Elite: Resistance #1

Sniper Elite: Resistance is an adrenaline-fuelled thrill-ride set during the darkest days of World War Two – a sure fire hit for gamers and comic book readers alike… (especially Battle, perhaps, a title Rebellion now own).

In occupied France, Allied Special Operations Executive hero Karl Fairburne parachutes into the town of Angouleme in a bid to stop the shipment of a new German anti-aircraft weapon – the situation is more complex, and dangerous, than he could ever have imagined.

The first issue has two equally-orderable variants by Goddard and Sniper Elite videogame artist Edouard Groult.

Sniper Elite: Resistance will be available from all good comic book stores – order using Diamond codes JUN181949 (Goddard cover) and JUN181950 (Groult variant cover)
