ABC Warriors: Return to Mars

Illustrated by Clint Langley
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

Mars, the far future. Tasked with increasing the peace on the war-ravaged Red Planet, the A.B.C. Warriors are reunited with one of their oldest number - the mechanic known as Tubal Caine AKA Happy Shrapnel. As Happy explains how he died and was subsequently resurrected by Medusa (the planetary consciousness). Happy's story exposes the identity of the villain responsible for most of the trouble on Mars - 'the father of all A.B.C. Warriors' needs to be executed, and the Warriors are going to need the help of another old ally to carry out the mission...

PAT MILLS is the creator and first editor of 2000AD. He developed Judge Dredd and is the writer-creator of many of 2000AD’s most popular stories such as Sláine, Nemesis and ABC Warriors. Amongst his credits are Marshal Law, (Marvel and D.C. Comics) co-created with Kevin O’Neill, the French graphic novel series Requiem, Vampire Knight with artist Olivier Ledroit, and Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! The Secret History of 2000AD and Judge Dredd. His current projects include Joe Pineapples: Tin Man, illustrated by Simon Bisley and Clint Langley, Spacewarp, and Kiss My Axe!

Clint Langley began his 2000 AD career with the fully painted artwork of his co-created series Dinosty. He quickly went on to illustrate Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Outlaw, Sinister Dexter and Tales of Telguuth. His striking mixture of fully painted art and digital manipulation on Sláine and the ABC Warriors has made him a firm favourite with fans. As well as working for 2000 AD Langley has produced covers for Games Workshop and Marvel (with striking covers for The Punisher, Wolverine and Ghost Rider amongst others), produced art for World of Warcraft and Magic: The Gathering, and is the winner of the 2007 Inquest Gamer Fan Awards for Best Artist.
