Created by writer Michael Fleisher and artists Steve Dillon and Kevin Walker, The New Harlem Heroes debuted in 2000AD prog 671 (and are not to be confused with the original Harlem Heroes by Tom Tully and Dave Gibbons).
Born and raised in the New York mega-slums, Trips stole his first hovercraft at the age of 11. By age 16 he had aquired a rep as the foremost booster of luxury aircraft and customised vehicles on the eastern seaboard. Trips served several short sentences for simple vehicle theft in various 'revolving door' facilities before being classified as incorrigible and sent to Subterranean Penal Colony 14.
Trips is a master at stealing/driving/repairing any form of vehicle, he is the driver, pilot and mechanic for the Heroes.
The New Harlem Heroes are all criminals serving time in SPC-14, the worst subterranean penal colony on the planet. Here, beneath the dull glow of the halogen arcs, a motley horde of hardcore criminals, politcal dissidents and deviants of every description toil in the mines until they drop dead from exhaustion....
Escape is impossible, but Silver, Slice, Patrice, Trips and Deacon all think overwise - becoming the New Harlem Heroes they want out!
