Welcome to the space-year 2019, Terrans, as we surge into another scrotnig twelve months of ghafflebette goodness courtesy of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!
This Prog, alongside the continuing adventures for Skip Tracer, Brink and Fiends of the Western Front we have a complete Judge Dredd thriller from Rory McConville and Dan Cornwell, and the start of another of my 3rillers, the highly topical The Scorched Zone, by Eddie Robson and Nick Brokenshire.
Given that members of your species were only recently offering dire warnings for the future of the planet thanks to climate change, this story should resonate with you all. I have to say, I’ve been predicting humanity’s fate within these pages for forty-two years now so these stark expectations don’t come entirely as a surprise...
But let’s not start the new year on a gloomy note — there’s Thrill-power to channel, and a stunning line-up of strips awaiting you in 2019!
2000 AD Prog 2112 is out now from all good newsagents and comic book stores, plus digitally from our webshop and apps! Don't forget that if you buy an issue of 2000 AD in the first week of its release then postage in the UK is free!
