Rogue Trooper Video Game available
Rogue Trooper is a character from 2000AD fighting a one way war to avenge his buddies in a chemical hell hole.

A Bit of Information on Victor Comic
Had such great stories as Tough on the Track, Gorgeous Gus (Footer story) and In Battle with Braddock.
Comic ran between 1961 and 1992. I read it between 1977 and 1984.

Scorcher Comics
There were many who said that this was the best footer comic of the lot. It ran from 1970 to 1974 when it merged with Tiger.

Buster Comics - Always great for a laugh (1960-2000)
Loved the toothless shark 'Gums'. Buster of course was the son of Al Capp.
Some say that this was the best of all the British humour comics.

It may have been, but Beezer was a close rival.
Beezer lasted from 1956-1993.
