Vice Press have just released a brand new, officially licensed 2000AD screen print; Rogue Trooper by Florian Bertmer, a huge fan of the comic who has brought Nu-Earth to life through insanely detailed art.

He started his career creating record covers and music merchandise for a wide variety of legendary bands such as Napalm Death, Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, The Misfits, Mastodon and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, just to name a few.
