Classic British Fleetway/IPC comics characters stage a Rebellion!

by Phil Wheat

Back in 2016 Rebellion, the company behind 2000AD and a myriad of video games, acquired the old Fleetway and IPC libraries and with them a wealth of classic British heroes. Well now Rebellion have announced that they are launching the ‘Rebellion-verse’, a new interconnected world of British superheroes, beginning with The Vigilant, a special one-shot title which brings back classic characters such as Adam Eterno, Blake Edmonds, Thunderbolt the Avenger, and The Leopard from Lime Street.

When the evil forces of Von Hoffman and Dr Mesmer team up and pluck the immortal Adam Eterno from the winds of time, all of reality is under threat! Only The Vigilant – a mighty team composed of super-beings, warlocks, warriors and monsters – stand between civilisation and total chaos! Join The Leopard from Lime Street, Steel Commando, Dr. Sin, Pete’s Pocket Army, Blake Edmonds, Y’o and Thunderbolt the Avenger on their premiere adventure!

The Vigilant is set for release in the UK on August 15th, written by Simon Furman (Transformers, Titan’s Robotech) and with art from Simon Coleby (Judge Dredd).
