2000 AD Prog 2222 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Thistlebone and brand new Tharg’s 3Rillers!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2222 is OUT NOW!

Welcome to Prog 2222, in which you might say we have all our ducks in a row — there’s ape investigations in Judge Dredd: Who Killed Captain Cookies?, sinister intrigue in folk-chiller Thistlebone, sci-fi excitement in Proteus Vex: The Shadow Chancellor and bullet-sprayed bad-assery in Durham Red: Served Cold.

Yep, you can’t argue with that zarjaz line-up — but where, we can hear you Terrans imploring, is Sláine: Dragontamer? Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the Manco art-droid — smoke pouring from his outlet vents as he raced to reach the deadline — we have had to put the climax of the Celtic warrior’s adventures back by a few weeks to allow for the pages to be finished.

So in its place you’ll find the start of a scrotnig 3riller from Brendan McCarthy and Roger Langridge, a retro-future police procedural called Nakka of the S.T.A.R.S, introducing Inspector Nakrosky of the Space Taskforce Armed Response Squad. Expect murder, clones, killer robots and cream teas in the heart of this green and pleasant land!

Be here in seven, loyal Squaxx, for the explosive finales to both Vex and Red!

JUDGE DREDD // WHO KILLED CAPTAIN COOKIES? // Part Two!

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. Crime is rampant and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now the benevolent do-gooder Captain Cookies has been murdered, and
super-intelligent ape Noam Chimpsky is investigating who was behind it…

DURHAM RED // SERVED COLD // Part Ten!

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, while imprisoned in the Hawks-Carpenter Holding Station, she’s been captured by mercenaries, who plan to auction her off…

THARG’S 3RILLERS // NAKKA OF THE S.T.A.R.S // Part One!

Three episodes, one complete, self-contained story — a condensed hit of super-charged Thrill-power beamed to you directly from the Nerve Centre! The UK, sometime in the near future. Inspector Nakrosky is a veteran law-enforcement officer of the Space Taskforce Armed Response Squad, a grizzled hold-out from an age before robots, aliens and clones. But despite being an anachronism, he’s still a good copper…

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

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…

THISTLEBONE // POISONED ROOTS // Part Two!

Britain, 2020. It’s been over a year since journalist Seema Chaudry accompanied cult survivor Avril Easton back to the village of Harrowvale, the site of her terryifying experiences at the hands of Jasper Hillman’s THISTLEBONE worshippers, a crazed occult group that believed in an ancient woodland deity. Scarred by the experience, Seema refuses to return, even when skeletons have been found amongst tree roots…
