4 days ago
All good things must come to an end, but though 2000 AD Prog 2099 - out today - sees the end of the current roster of Thrills, Earthlets should prefer themselves to witness a mighty Thrill-powered Phoenix rising in just seven days!
Survival Geeks, Mechastopheles, The Order and Judge Dredd: The Booth Conspiracy all come to their senses-shattering finales this Prog, plus there’s a complete Future Shock from debuting script droid Mark McCann and art-bot Adam Brown.
This means a brand-new line-up commences next week in Prog 2100, and what a roster of Thrills it is too!
