More War Toys from Starkings and Moritat

Elephantmen: War Toys #2 (or 3), from US publisher Active Images, goes on sale next week (27 February) in all sensible (and some insensible) comic shops.

Written by former Marvel UK head honcho and First Tiger Richard Starkings (he who got me into the world of comics publishing in the first place) War Toys #2 features by Moritat, recently singled out by Newsarama’s Ryan the Iowan as Best Penciller of the Year in his Yearly Review Power Rankings.

The cover is by Boo Cook, with a variant cover also on offer by Ladrönn.

In War Toys, Africa and China are at war. The battlefield: Europe. Enter: MAPPO’s genetically engineered soldiers, The Elephantmen with Starkings and Moritat telling the story of the war to end all wars in a special three issue mini series!

In this latest issue of the future saga, France has fallen to MAPPO… but even the Elephantmen have sustained heavy casualties. As Africa’s forces advance into the North of Europe, Hip Flask, Ebony Hide and Obadiah Horn find that their way forward is not as easy as they thought it would be.
