Thrud and Gobbledigook go Rogue Trading!

I have recently been exploring the comic art that WD magazine used to run in the '80s. I have included a longer article over on my Warhammer blog realmofchaos80s but chose to post the Rogue Trader ones here.

Its seems the most appropriate place!

First up with have a Thrud the Barbarian strip set somewhere in the 40k universe. The art style is very similar to some of the images I posted previous; making Carl Critchlow (the creator of Thrud) the artist behind some of those images- can you work out which ones?

Here, Gobbledigook becomes involved in a contact between Rogue Trader marines and some Space Orks. Lots of zany fun to be had here. Enjoy!


  1. Brilliant stuff!

    Its worth checking out the Dark Future rulebook for more of Carls work for GW, its very reminiscent of the work he did for the Rogue Trader book.

    All the best!

  2. Always wondered why there was never a 40k comic back in the day?

    Would have been sweet,
