2000 AD Prog 2208 is out now, with more new Judge DreddSticklebackHook-JawSkip Tracer, and Fiends of the Eastern Front!


Welcome to the weekly circuit-scorcher that is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, your one-stop shop for brain-sizzling excitement.

Inside you’ll find the latest scrotnig instalments of Judge Dredd, Fiends of the Eastern Front and Stickleback plus the penultimate parts for both Hook-Jaw and Skip Tracer — be here in seven for their unmissable finales!

As we dictate these words to the scribe-bot squatting on our desk, the UK is on the brink of another monthlong lockdown, with all the attendant stresses and worries that brings.

If our illustrious organ can alleviate some of that misery by transporting you, if only for a brief time, to other worlds, allowing you to leave the here and now far behind, then we feel this anthology is doing its job.

Tharg came from Quaxxann just under forty-four years ago to share his ghafflebette visions with you Terrans and to ensure that your planet was properly Thrilled — it would be remiss of us if we didn’t continue that in even the most trying of circumstances.

So be assured that 2000 AD will be here for you every week — and don’t forget that you can take out a sub and have your prog delivered direct to your door.

Just go to shop.2000AD.com!

Mega-City One, 2142 AD. Home to over 140 million citizens, this urban hell is situated
along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. With unemployment rife and
boredom universal, tensions run a knife-edge and crime is rampant. Only the Judges
— zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy.
Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

STICKLEBACK // New Jerusalem // Part Eight!

London, the end of the nineteenth century. STICKLEBACK is a master criminal, pulling the
strings amidst the denizens of the capital’s underworld, and led a gang of freaks, oddballs and semi-supernatural entities that had the city under their thumb. Mystery has always surrounded his past, and his identity has now been revealed as none other than Sherlock Holmes himself. But London faces a dire threat from otherworldly creatures…

SKIP TRACER // Hyperballad // Part Eight!

The Cube, the 27th century. This vast city was once a monitoring station, but has been
refitted by the Earth-led Consociation as a solution to a universal housing problem,
where it’s become home to every kind of wanted criminal. That’s where SKIP TRACER
Nolan Blake comes in, a former soldier turned tracker, who wields powerful psi-abilities.
Now, following Nimrod’s attempt to destroy the Cube, it’s in orbit above Balbuena…

FIENDS OF THE EASTERN FRONT // Constanta // Part Seven!

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing
events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain
Constanta and his Romanian platoon. But Schmitt was not the first trooper to meet
Constanta — the vampire was on the Western Front too, in France in 1916. Now, in 1921,
an British pilot, Lieutenant Tim Wilson, has travelled to Romania in search of him…

HOOKJAW // Part Eight!

NEW STORY! His name is legend, a myth that has passed into popular culture via
stories, word of mouth, comics, merchandise, and more — that of the formidable Great
White shark known as HOOK-JAW. A spear protruding from his lower jaw, few who
encounter him live to tell the tale, so terrible is his hunger. Bodies rent asunder in his
wake, the sea stained red with the blood of his victims, he’s a true terror of the deep…
