Rebellion here reprints 2000AD’s sci-fi tale of space warfare, The VCs, for the first time, in which the Vacuum Cleaners take on the power of the alien Geek empire. Created by Gerry Findley-Day (who also created Rogue Trooper) in many ways The VCs was about the futility of war told from the perspective of new recruit Steve Smith as his steep learning curve throws him into the midst of a vicious intergalactic conflict.
Brought to life with art from Mike McMahon, Cam Kennedy, Gary Leach and more this is classic 2000AD action from 1979-1980. It’s dated but still a hell of a lot of fun with a blunt message that still resonates today.
