2000 AD Prog 2234 is out now! Featuring more new Feral & Foe, plus brand new Judge Dredd, Mechastopheles, Department K and Chimpsky’s Law!
BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2234 is OUT NOW!
We’re back, Squaxx, after last week’s all-ages divergence, and there’s no less than four new stories to get your Terran teeth into.
Alongside Feral & Foe, you’ll find within these pages the start of the first full-length series for Regened hit Department K, with art-bot Dan Cornwell joining regular writer Rory McConville, plus the Niemand and Holden droids reunite for Noam Chimpsky’s
first solo strip.
Add to that the return of demonic robot Mechastopheles from the Two Rennies and Boo Cook (if you missed the earlier series, make sure you catch the reprint in Meg 433, out 16 June), and a complete Dredd thriller from Chris Weston, marking the end of a particular aspect of JD history, and it’s a seriously scrotnig line-up!
But it’s been a time of sadness in the 2000 AD community too as we heard the news last month that Dave Evans (often credited as Bolt-01) had died. Editor of 2000 AD fanzines Zarjaz, Dogbreath and Futurequake, he was familiar face at conventions, and as friendly a fan as you could hope to meet.
His unswerving dedication to the small-press scene was huge, and he will be much missed. RIP, Bolt.
2000 AD Prog 2234 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!

JUDGE DREDD // Adios, Rowdy Yates!
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!
MECHASTOPHELES // The Hunting Party // Part One!
It is over a year since the Fall, when the demons rose and society collapsed. A band of human survivors have sought refuge in a demonically powered robot called MECHASTOPHELES, and they use this infernal ark as a means to seek sanctuary, searching for a safe haven away from the creatures that now stalk the land. But the demon bound to the mek, Apollyoneth Morga, has enemies in Hell too…
DEPARTMENT K // Cosmic Chaos // Part One!
Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Justice Dept has many divisions tasked with dealing with the threats that face the metropolis, and the mysterious DEPARTMENT K is a branch of Tek-Div, whose brief is to tackle interdimensional enemies seeking to break through the walls of reality. Headed by Judge Kirby, and comprising of intern Afua, Mechanismo droid Estabon and the alien Blackcurrant, they’ve recently returned to MC-1…
FERAL & FOE II // Part Ten!
It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating the Malign Lord. With their leader dead, his minions are scattered, fleeing retribution from the Wretchfinders. Necromancer Bode and warrior Wrath are two such beings, and were offered a deal — hunt and kill their own kind or be declared FERAL & FOE. Now, they’ve returned to Golgone the Necromancer, having retrieved the Chalice of Malice…
CHIMPSKY’S LAW // The Talented Mr Chimpsky // Part One!
Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Late 21st-century science gave primates the ability to speak and socialise with humans, and there’s an enclave within the metropolis, Apetown, where simian citizens can live and work. Noam Chimpsky is a super-intelligent ape, who has chosen to look after his fellow human civilians in his local sector, ensuring criminality is discouraged — often under the Judges’ noses — and people are cared for…
