Roll Call! Unveiling the Cast for the Return of ‘Alien Legion’

Chuck Dixon, Carl Potts and Larry Stroman surprised everyone last year by announcing a return to their Alien Legion series, this time with Titan Comics. But sure enough they’ve held true to that announcement, and today sees the launch of issue #1 (which I read, and very much enjoyed Stroman’s art in particular – always had a fond spot for his work).

In order to give us all a better look at who the cast of alien characters will be in the new series, Titan have released a series of roll calls. “Is there a character called Jugger Grimrod?” you ask. Well…!

Get a load of all those apostrophes, you guys. This book means alien business. And, because they really know how to properly pamper a comics website, Titan also issued the following press release:

In a galaxy savaged by strife, torn by civil war, boiling with spilt blood, Alien Legion is a cosmic military force doing its damnedest to keep the peace by being always ready for war. 

At the tip of the Legion’s multi-species spear is Force Nomad – the worst of the worst fashioned on the white-hot forge of battle into the best of the best. Now the squad’s grizzled veterans are on what should be a boring milk run; shepherding refugees fleeing a civil war ripping apart their system. Could be a good chance to to toughen the newbies of Nomad into soldiers… until straight-up peacekeeping descends into full-scale war!

This brand-new series brings together the creative giants behind the legendary original Alien Legion stories: Chuck Dixon (Punisher War Journal, Savage Sword of Conan, Batman and the Outsider) and Carl Potts, with fantastic art by Larry Stroman! 

A must-have for any fan of the original run, this is also the perfect point for new fans to hit Alien Legion’s hot LZ! Get to it, ya damn bospors!  

You guys – what the HECK is a bospor meant to be? It’s so hard to resist a press release which yells at you in a made up language.
