The Stainless Steel Rat Summary

The Stainless Steel Rat: Deluxe Edition by Comic script by Kelvin Gosnell

Long out of print, the adaptation of Harry Harrison's science-fiction classic by Kelvin Gosnell and Carlos Ezquerra is back in a gorgeous new edition!

James Bolivar diGriz aka 'The Stainless Steel Rat' is many things, including a con man, a thief and a member of an elite law-enforcement agency known as the Special Corps. After escaping the corps, the Rat crosses paths with the beautiful but deadly Angelina. Like Jim diGriz she is also a master criminal, albeit a lot more ruthless. They are a match made in hell!

After marrying Angelina, the Rat has to travel through time to stop a master criminal meddling with the past and then later help overthrown an evil President by running for the job himself!

A classic from 2000 AD's first 'golden age', Stainless Steel Rat is a must-read for fans of Harrison or old school sci-fi action with bold characters and a wry twist of humour, complemented by Ezquerra's dynamic and inimitable artwork.

This brand new edition includes, for the first time, the stunning colour centre spreads as they originally appeared in 2000 AD.

About Comic script by Kelvin Gosnell

Harry Harrison is the much-loved author of the Stainless Steel Rat and Bill the Galactic Hero novels. He was also a highly respected science-fiction critic and anthologist. Harry penned the story that inspired the classic SF film Soylent Green.



As co-creator of Judge Dredd, Carlos Ezquerra designed the classic original costume as well as visually conceptualising Mega-City One. He also co-created Strontium Dog. He has also illustrated A.B.C. Warriors, Judge Anderson, Tharg the Mighty, Al's Baby and Cursed Earth Koburn amongst many others. Outside of the 'Galaxy's Greatest Comic', Ezquerra first illustrated Third World War in Crisis magazine, and became a regular collaborator with Garth Ennis, working on Adventures in the Rifle Brigade, Bloody Mary, Just a Pilgrim, Condors and The Magnificent Kevin. He also pencilled two special Preacher episodes.

Kelvin Gosnell served as 2000 AD's second editor, from Progs 17 to 85 (18th June 1977 - 7th October 1978). He also wrote Blackhawk, Dan Dare, A Joe Black Adventure, Judge Dredd, One-Offs, Project Overkill, Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales, The Stainless Steel Rat and Tharg's Future Shocks, as well as co-writing the first series of Flesh.
