 My first introduction to The Stainless Steel Rat was through the pages of 2000AD and I blooming loved it.  Imagine my joy when I went and read the books that it was based on and realised that what I had originally read was an incredibly well done and faithful adaptaion.  So if your a fan of the books or just curious – check it out. 

STAINLESS STEEL RAT

GENTLEMAN THIEF – SCIENCE-FICTION HERO!

 

 Slippery Jim aka The Stainless Steel Rat may be the greatest con-man of all time. He’s charming, quick-witted and a mas­ter thief and adventurer. Yet the road to infamy doesn’t always run smooth and Jim diGriz finds himself forced into serving the Special Corps elite law enforcement agency and confronting the beautiful but deadly Angelina – his future wife! Things get even stranger for the Rat when he 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!

Now read Harry Harrison’s science-fiction classic, collected together as a graphic novel for the very first time and featuring the stunning artwork of Carlos Ezquerra.
