He's gone rogue!

Nu-Earth, meant to be a new home for humanity, now ravaged by total war between the Norts and Southers has become a planet not suitable for humankind. Only the G.I. (Genetic Infantryman) can survive its poisoned air and deadly viruses. But when the Southern G.I.'s are treacherously ambushed, only one survives. Carrying the micro-chips of his friends, Helm, Gunner and Bagman, he intends on getting them to safety so they may be restored in new bodies.rnrnRogue, true to his name, goes it alone, to uncover what really happened at the Quartz zone massacre which killed all his kin.

Fighting his way through Nu-Earth and fending off Nord attacks, spies and traitors. Rogue's adventures are action packed and surprising as he sets off through a dystopian world ravaged by war, exploited by corruption and ruled by deception. In the greater context of a planetary war, Rogue's personal battles and purpose are very human, juxtaposing his very creation as a perfect warrior.

Featuring artwork by Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Nu-Earth comes to life with amazing detail and depth while Gerry Finley-Day's (Harry 20 on The High Rock) writing remains fun and witty throughout with serious undertones regarding duty, honour, friendship, trust, belonging and survival.
