2000 AD Prog 2214 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Sláine and Hershey!


An absolutely stuffed issue of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic for you this week, Terrans, with barely enough room for a Gronk hair between each story — indeed, so packed with Thrills is it that I’ve had to run on to the back cover.

So sit back, immerse yourselves in the zarjaz delights of the latest instalments of Judge Dredd, Hershey, Sláine, Proteus Vex and Durham Red, and prepare to have your imaginations well and truly blitzed!

This is actually being dictated in the middle of December, prior to the Command Module festive shutdown (or at least all those droids working from their domiciles thanks to the pandemic will be deactivating for the next couple of weeks) and the scrotnig bumper Xmas prog has just gone on sale.

We would be very interested to hear what you Squaxx think of the latest line-up so beam us your brain-fodder to the usual Input address — input@2000ADonline.com — and let us know what is or isn’t floating your boat.

Remember, there’s a free graphic novel for every letter printed (providing we succeed in matter-transmitting Cyber-Matt over to the archive to grab them — turned him inside out last time). Enjoy, humes, enjoy!



2000 AD Prog 2214 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!
