2000 AD Prog 2213 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Sláine and Hershey!
BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2213 is OUT NOW!
Here we are in the space-year 2021, Terrans, and I trust you managed to have a suitably scrotnig, but most importantly safe Christmas and New Year.
I also hope your circuits were satisfyingly supercharged by last prog’s ghafflebette contents because we’re launching in to January with more of the same as this issue contains the eye-popping second episodes of Sláine, Proteus Vex, Durham Red and Hershey.
Joining them is the start of a new case for Dredd in the shape of Desperadlands by Mike Carroll and William Simpson, who provides his first painted interiors for the prog in over two decades! Those Squaxx of a certain vintage will remember his glorious paints on the Dredd story Banana City way back in 1989, and this new tale finds the lawman once again on the outskirts of Ciudad Barranquilla (coincidentally on the same continent Hershey’s currently storming through)…
It’s not all about thirty-year-old callbacks, though – the House of Tharg is also providing all-ages Thrills for the younger Earthlet with the release this month of the first Regened collection, packaging up stories from Joko-Jargo’s popular takeovers. Plus it comes with a brand-new Cadet Dredd story, exclusive to this book!
2000 AD Prog 2213 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!

Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!
DURHAM RED // SERVED COLD // Part Two!
Late 22nd century. Of all the mutants that have operated as Search/Destroy agents, perhaps the most feared is vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive.
