Not out yet. Also now called ROK of the Reds, due to the possibility of unwelcome legal attention from Hasbro over a certain Space Knight.

I think BHP are hoping to have #1 out late 2015 or early 2016.

Cheers

I've read #1 (because I lettered it) and it's great fun. Imagine Tharg demanded a Roy Of The Rovers-style strip for 2000AD from the Wagner and Grant droids. Dan Cornwell does a top job on the art and the artist formerly known as Abby Ryder delivers top- itch colours.

Cheers

I'm really looking forward to this, hopefully it gets released sooner rather than later.

Any news on this? BHP comics new website will be up this month according to my searches, but nothing else pops up.
 
Well that's just like your opinion man.

Picked up a copy at the Capital Sci-Fi Con, and it's not bad.  As with all these things, it'll need a few issues to really rate it, but thus far it looks interesting with a sorta throwback feel.  Script wise rtoo early to tell as I mentioned, but it's Wagner and Grant, so I'm prepared to invest the time to find out.  Cornwell's art is nice, and suits the story (as I sede it the now anyway) very well. 

So yeah, go pick up a copy folks!

I'm going to overcome my loathing of the "beautiful" game and pick this up based solely on the creative team!  :D

Exactly how I felt dweezil.  It does look like it may be a good wee run though.

Ha, ha Ghost MacRoth!

Fingers crossed it's 2000ad-esque enough for me to quash my prejudices!   ;)

As I mentioned, it may be a bit early to properly judge, but the first issue was a decent read, no filler pages like the IDW stuff, pretty much cover to cover comic strip.  Worth 4 quid of anyone's money, and a wee half hour of yer time to read it.
