On Thursday the 11th of September, a hardback collection was released by 2000AD of ABC Warriors: The Mech Files 02, and what makes this collection particularly special is its release in full Prog-size format to do justice to the rather ravishing artwork of Kev Walker. And it is ravishing. Mesmerizing even. The colors alone are fantastic. But for those readers who prefer digital format, it's also available through the 2000AD shop for screen-reading.
The book is described thus:
They're resistant to Atomic, Bacterial, and Chemical warfare – but the ABC Warriors will have to face much worse things in the long-unavailable stories Khronicles of Khaos and Hellbringer! Having saved the universe from destruction, the A.B.C. Warriors have chosen to devote themselves to Deadlock's anarchic religion. To become true agents of Khaos, they must first travel to the planet Hekate, collecting seven heads and a seventh team member before The Night of The Blood Moon.
Will the power of Khaos be enough to stop the Terran Empire from obliterating them with their deadly weapon, The Hellbringer? Co-written by Pat Mills (Marshal Law, Nemesis the Warlock) and Tony Skinner (Accident Man, Sex Warrior) this volume of the Mek Files features the sumptuous, fully-painted artwork of Kev Walker (Judge Dredd, Marvel Zombies).
And here's our 10 page preview courtesy of 2000AD:
