Half hour later, he revealed all.
Incredibly excited to confirm I’m working on an adaption of Gerry Finley-Day & Dave Gibbons’ 2000AD comic ROGUE TROOPER!
Lot of work ahead though, so we will NOT be at SDCC.

Here’s a little more about Rogue Trooper from the official 2000 AD website.
Nu-Earth – a poisoned planet ravaged by war. Across the battle-scarred landscape stalks a solitary figure, the last of his kind, the disembodied digital personalities of his dead comrades his only company.
He is the Rogue Trooper and his mission is simple – find and kill the traitor general who betrayed the Genetic Infantrymen.
