“Starship Troopers returns in an explosion of Sex, Bugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll!”
With these words, AAM/Markosia’s flagship ongoing series relaunched with issue #5 (Bad Blood, Part 1 of 4) in January 2008.
My active involvement with Starship Troopers goes back several years now. It all began when I got involved with playtesting the miniatures game for Mongoose Publishing. Soon, I was writing a monthly Starship Troopers strip, Extinction Protocol, for their online magazine and by the time that was starting to wind up I had the first issues of the Markosia book on the comic shop shelves. It’s been a wild ride getting here, and I’m having the time of my life.
The original Starship Troopers, of course, was Robert Heinlein's controversial classic novel. The book used the background of an interstellar "Bug War" to discuss moral, political and philosophical questions about society. Since then there have been films, computer games, an anime series, a CGI series and a number of tabletop and roleplaying games. That's a rich background to draw from - and a lot to live up to.
