The Regened Prog is back for 2021, Earthlets young and old, and features new Cadet Dredd, Future Shocks, Action Pact, Viva Foever and Mayflies!


2000 AD might be celebrating its forty-fourth birthday — yeah, we know; that old! — but it’s still feeling young at heart, which is why Joko-Jargo’s Uncle Tharg has handed this issue over to him to assemble another Regened prog, bringing together awesome scifi stories that can be enjoyed by Squaxx of every vintage.

Within these zarjaz pages you’ll find another thrilling case for Cadet Dredd, courtesy of Arthur Wyatt and Davide Tinto, and a brain-frazzling Future Shock from Karl Stock and Silvia Califano, alongside no less than three brand-new strips — the high-octane Action Pact by Mike Carroll and Luke Horsman, the twisty-turny Viva Forever by David Baillie and Anna Morozova, and the explosive Mayflies by Mike Carroll and Simon Coleby, set in the Rogue Trooper universe.

Let us know via what you think of the pilot episodes and whether you’d like to see more. The reponse to last year’s Department K has meant a full-length series will hit the prog in a few months’ time, so your opinions count, Terrans!

If you missed some of the earlier Regened material, make sure you pick up the first collection, available now, which includes an exclusive Cadet Dredd story!



2000 AD Prog 2220 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!

CADET DREDD // Suboptimal!

Mega-City One, 2077 AD. Home to over 800 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. On one side is the polluted Black Atlantic, and to the west is the blasted radlands of the Cursed Earth. Overcrowding
in the metropolis is rife, unemployment is at ninety per cent, boredom is universal and crime is rampant. Only the Judges — a zero-tolerance police force empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. CADET JOE DREDD — together with his
clone-brother Rico — is a rising star in Justice Department, and will one day be its finest officer. Make no mistake, he is the Law!

ACTION PACT // The Raydar Recovery!

The far future, out in the depths of the cosmos. Commander Drake leads a team for very specialist operations — assisted by heavyweapons agent Warsaw, tech expert Elton, twin gunners Tevyr and Jiago, and the silent and deadly assassin Shadow, she takes her orders extremely seriously, and faces the most dangerous of enemies. The members of her squad have come from planets all over the galaxy, and often from different eras. But just who is responsible for bringing them together and setting their missions? Why are there so many foes, eager to stop them from carrying them out? And why is Drake keen for this op to be ‘the one’…?

VIVA FOREVER // 9 Amazing Tips..!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. In this vast metropolis of the twentysecond century, there’s a huge gulf between the haves and the
have-nots. Whilst many of the citizens are unemployed and living on welfare, their rundown apartment blocks rife with criminality, in the gleaming starscrapers that tower above them reside the multimillionaires. These enormously expensive buildings are designed to keep the super-rich far from the masses, where they can luxuriate in their wealth. But a champion of the people is making waves amongst the billionaires — the thief VIVA FOREVER, who is posting online guidance on how to take their money…

preconceptions, and expect the unexpected. Now, at some point in the future, humanity will be enthralled by the next generation of social media called Allthefeels, which allows every user to connect emotionally — meaning influencers can sell exclusive experiences…

MAYFLIES// Precious Cargo!

Nu Earth is just one planet among many caught up in a galactic war between the Norts and the Southers. Strategically vital, both sides are desperate to secure it but use of chemical weapons during the conflict has rendered the atmosphere poisonous. Now, soldiers must wear special environment suits to venture onto its surface. So the Southers created the Genetic Infantrymen, bred to be immune to the planet’s lethal cocktail of pollutants. But the gene-engineers are always looking to improve the next generation of G.I.s, giving them specialised skills and abilities — and the enemy is keen to acquire them to make their own disposable army…
