The V.C.s: Hell in the Heavens

Part of The VCs
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

By 2531, humanity had colonised the solar system. Warfare and barbarity had all but been forgotten. Then the 'Geeks' arrived - a deadly alien species with only one thing on their dark, unfathomable minds... the extinction of the human race! And so, humankind was forced to battle once more, this time amongst the stars, in space patrol ships crewed by the V.C.s (aka Vacuum Cleaners).

New recruit Steve Smith is ready for action, but first he must face a fight closer to home, and gain the acceptance of his combat-hardened crew mates.

One of the most prolific writers in the comic’s history, Gerry Finley-Day holds a special place in many 2000 AD fans’ hearts as the creator of classics like Rogue Trooper, Fiends of the Eastern Front and The V.C.s, as well as Harry 20 on the High Rock and Ant Wars. A keen “ideas man”, Finley-Day’s concepts of the horrors future warfare had in store were key to both Rogue and The V.C.s’ continuing popularity, ensuring that their recent return to the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic was well-received. Finley-Day also scripted episodes of Judge Dredd and Dan Dare, and co-scripted much of Invasion! (and entirely scripted the prequel story, ‘Disaster 1990!’).
