2000 AD Prog 2217 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Sláine and Hershey!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2217 is OUT NOW!

Welcome, Squaxx, to your latest salvo of circuit-shattering excitement, courtesy of our crack squad of creator droids, beavering away under the toughest of social-distancing restrictions.

Script and art-bots have been programmed to stay well out of each other’s way (always a good idea, even when there’s not a pandemic on), and Mek-Quake has been fitted with an extra-long electro-lash to ensure punishments can continue to be delivered safely and responsibly.

Tharg is, after all, an employer that cares for his minions — unless, of course, they fail me, in which case we are reliably informed he will CRUSH THEM! CRUSH THEM UNTIL THEIR DIODES SQUEAK!

If that still doesn’t satiate your hunger for sci-fi excitement, make sure you don’t miss this month’s Judge Dredd Megazine, which features a complete Dredd thriller from Ken Niemand and Patrick Goddard alongside the latest chapters of Megatropolis, Dreadnoughts, The Returners and Deliverance.

Anyway, all these precautions are undertaken so you humes can enjoy your weekly prog, and as ever we have another zarjaz issue for you, with scrotnig instalments of Hershey, Proteus Vex, Durham Red and Sláine joined by a rather saucy complete case for Judge Dredd from Ken Niemand and Dan Cornwell.

JUDGE DREDD // NAKED CITY

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Home to over 160 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, with the irradiated wasteland known as the Cursed Earth to the west. Unemployment is rife, boredom universal and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!


Script: Alec Worley / Art: Ben Willsher / Letters: Jim Campbell

DURHAM RED // SERVED COLD // Part Six!

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. Mistrusted by both the criminals she hunts and her fellow Strontium Dogs, Red has a formidable reputation that precedes her. Now, she’s trapped in the Hawks-Carpenter Holding Station and Stillwater’s extraction team are closing in on her…


Script: Pat Mills / Art: Leonardo Manco / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

SLÁINE // DRAGONTAMER // Part Six!

Albion. Celtic warrior SLÁINE united the tribes of the Earth Goddess Danu and became the first High King of Ireland, but is now a wanderer, seeking adventure where the Goddess directs him. Following Sláine’s slaughter of Trojans at Beal An Atha in an
ongoing battle for Albion’s freedom, Emperor Brutus sent Dragon Squadrons to dispose of him at Inniscrone, but the barbarian defeated them. Now his fight continues…


Script: Mike Carroll / Art: Jake Lynch / Colours: Jim Boswell / Letters: Simon Bowland

PROTEUS VEX // THE SHADOW CHANCELLOR // Part Six!

Another galaxy, the far future. The centuries-long war between the Alliance and the Obdurate people is over, a conflict brought to an end with the deaths of billions when the Alliance teleported a dying white dwarf star into the Obdurate system. Imperium agent PROTEUS VEX was charged with finding Chancellor Rho 7 Baryon, and when the flesh-pilot that controls Vex entered Baryon’s body he absorbed some of his memories…


Script: Rob Williams / Art: Simon Fraser / Letters: Simon Bowland

HERSHEY // THE BRUTAL // Part Six!

Judge Barbara Hershey was one of Justice Department’s most respected and capable young officers before she became Chief Judge. Leading the city through numerous challenges, she only occasionally clashed with Dredd — until the ‘Small House’ affair and the revelation of Judge Smiley’s clandestine operations on her watch. Now, seriously ill from a microbial virus, she’s faked her death to deal with Smiley’s legacy…
