I've been reading old threads about these comics, did you guys redraw the whole thing, or is it being recoloured? Or both?

Just recoloured, well, coloured! Battle was sister comic to 2000AD and only had colour pages in the centre spread and front and back covers. If you click on the title bar of each gallery you get a .cbr (Cdisplay) download of the strip which is still in the original B&W.

Colouring's a huge job, I barely have any patience for it myself.
That's cool though, thanks for the links!

It's all up already mate, just go to the galleries at my site.

If you click on the title bars of the galleries you'll find .cbr (Cdisplay) downloads. These can then be extracted using winrar, or just right-click the pages you want and choose save as.

However, please please please co-ordinate with either myself or Jamar at the BFTB forum as we have had some duplicate work submitted which is a real shame.

Not that I'm aware of, and that's also a great choice as it fits our theme of GI Joe era meets Red Shadow era characters.

I'll PM you my e-mail for submissions, best way is to upload via http://www.yousendit.com.

Thanks!!
