Rogan Gosh is the title of a British comic book story written by Peter Milligan and illustrated by Brendan McCarthy. Originally serialised in the 2000 AD spin-off title Revolver in 1990, it was later collected into a single edition by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics in 1994.

The name is a play on rogan josh, an Indian curry dish.

Overview[edit]

Described as an "Indian science fiction series", Rogan Gosh was one of the flagship stories in Revolver along with Grant Morrison's version of Dan Dare. The story is an example of Milligan and McCarthy's post-modernist psychedelic style of storyline which some readers found confusing, but challenging. It is also said by both creators to be partly autobiographical.

After Revolver was cancelled the story remained out of print before Vertigo released it in a collected edition.

Collected editions[edit]

The story has been collected into a trade paperback:
