Coming to Issue 17 of the digital anthology 100% Biodegradable is a brand new Rourke of the Radlands strip written by Dave Hailwood and me, John Freeman with art by Bill Storie and some rather glorious colours from Brett Burbridge.
Originally created by Wonder Woman artist Liam Sharp and myself, Rourke first appeared in Marvel UK’s Strip comic anthology back in the 90’s, where it was very well received. This is her first all-new solo outing since then; expect plenty of post apocalyptic sword and sorcery shenanigans!
Issue 17 of 100% Biodegradable is due out at the tail end of June. In the meantime, you can buy previous issues at the following places for just 69p/$0.99:
