Superb splash-page from prologue to “Khronicles of Khaos” Book II(Prog780,25Apr’92),where we see the Warriors invigourated,after getting much needed overhauls,including new recruit Morrigun,first female Warrior in an ever changing roster of seven fighting mechanoids.
Kev Walker had by now developed a distinct style and was fast becoming a fan favourite.
Spread the word!
(This should’ve been sent with my last post,for some reason iPad decided it didn’t want to!)
Hey-ho,love Ro-Jaws outfit tho’!
After successfully bringing Khaos to the planet of the Night Maras,the A.B.C Warriors,including the normally uptight Hammerstein,cut loose and indulge in a month-long party. However when it comes to leave,Deadlock master of Khaos,finds he has taught the warriors too well as no one adheres to commands anymore. This of course is Deadlock’s final lesson and announces he’s leaving as there’s nothing left to teach them,and that anarchic sewer droid,Ro-Jaws is going with him! End of Kev Walker’s triumphant first series;“Khronicles of Khaos”(Book II,Progs780-790,excl.785&786)
Having drawn a handful of Future Shocks,then working closely with British comics great Steve Dillon,inking his pencils on Harlem Heroes(90’s reboot)and pivotal Rogue Trooper story “Cinnabar”,Kev Walker was ready to tackle his first solo series.
And he could not have asked for a bigger assignment;the new A.B.C Warriors run,“Khronicles of Khaos”(this cover Prog750,26Sep’91).
The previous series,“The Black Hole”,had arguably been the best to date;written by 2000AD creator,Pat Mills and exquisitely drawn by new sensation,Simon Bisley,Walker had some pretty big shoes to fill..
