Comics Preview: Battle Action Volume Two, hitting stores in February

Battle Action Volume 2 - Final Cover

The best of Battle Action returns in February, with Battle Action Volume Two, a collection of twelve stories featuring the two classic British comics, offered in hardback collection from Rebellion.

Offering two new stories and ten represented from the recent mini-series, the book sees Air Ace Johnny Red and Angel of Death Nina Petrova face off against the Nazi invaders, lethal British agent Dredger deals with the abduction of the only person dear to his stony heart, and the louche Major Eazy must lead his men through the Devil’s Garden of El Alamein.

There’s action aplenty, too, with roguish British commandoes Rat Pack, along with Death Squad, their equally deadly German counterparts. And the hellish Arctic Ocean is the setting for HMS Nightshade, the classic tale of war at sea.
