In 1999, Britain was invaded by the Volgans, led by the despotic Marshal Vashkkov. With a puppet government installed, the United Kingdom was quickly under oppressive military rule. When London lorry driver Bill Savage discovered his family had been killed by a stray Volgan shell, he began a one man war against the aggressors. He escaped to Canada, but in 2004 - with help from the CIA - he returned under the identity of his dead brother Jack and continued to lead the resistance. Now the streets of London will be awash with Volgan blood in one of the most savage uprisings yet! Written by Pat Mills (Slaine) with art by Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead) this grim tale of an alternative England shows 2000 AD at its confrontational best!
