Continuing with their mission of preserving the legacy of classic British comics for a new generation, Rebellion have announced two volumes of the fondly remembered Major Eazy strip from the pages of 1970s/’80s weekly comic Battle. Full details below.
Take it ‘Eazy’ with ‘major’ new collection of classic war comics
Early (mis)adventures of iconic British war comics character, Major Eazy, to be collected in order for first time!
It’s still important to take things Eazy, even in the middle of a war! Next year the Treasury of British Comics will publish the remastered earliest (mis)adventures of one of comics’ most iconic characters.
Sauntering from the pages of the groundbreaking Battle comes Major Eazy, whose earliest stories to be collected in order for the first time.
Created by Alan Hebden (Stainless Steel Rat) and Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd), Major Eazy is a laconic, laid-back British Army officer during the Second World War who has a total disregard for authority or protocol. Based on actor James Coburn’s performance in The Magnificent Seven, Eazy was one of the most popular characters from Battle, his irreverence and coolness under pressure earning him legions of fans as he went on to command the band of convict commandos know as the Rat Pack.
Major Eazy: The Italian Campaign will take readers from the pulse-pounding invasion of Sicily to the German surrender at Brenner Pass, collecting all of his adventures in the Italian theatre. Rebellion’s experienced reprographics team has also restored all of the strip’s colour pages, which have never before been reprinted.
This 128-page paperback collection is the first in a two-volume series that will collect Eazy’s campaigns, and will invade shelves on 4 March 2021, retailing at £14.99.
