Gareth L. Powell’s Ack-Ack Macaque gets the comic book treatment

With Nazis, zepplins and a cigar-chomping primate protagonist, the new blisteringly fun SF masterpiece from master storyteller Gareth L. Powell is to burst into the pages of the iconic British comic book, 2000 AD.

A prequel tale to Powell’s Ack-Ack Macaque, Indestructible, will appear in the traditional ‘end of year’ bumper 100-page edition of 2000 AD, Prog 2013.

In 1944, as waves of German ninjas parachute into Kent, Britain’s best hopes for victory lie with a Spitfire pilot codenamed ‘Ack-Ack Macaque.’ The trouble is he’s actually a cynical, one-eyed, cigar-chomping monkey, and he’s starting to doubt everything – including his own existence!

Drawn by Judge Dredd artist Nick Dyer, the comic strip sees the novel’s eponymous hero take on the might of the Third Reich with his trusted compatriot, Morris.

Available to buy in all good newsagents on 12th December, the digital edition of Prog 2013 - available through 2000 AD’s onlinestore and Apple Newsstand app - will also include exclusive pencils, inks and concept sketches!
