PROG 2248 out now


It’s that time of the week once again, Squaxx, when Tharg and his creator-droids transport you out of your current reality and plunge you direct into the circuit-shattering maelstrom that is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic.

We’ve got the searing second episodes of Judge Dredd, Jaegir and the 3riller The Mask of Laverna, the penultimate part of Skip Tracer: Eden, and the finale to the current Dexter arc Somewhere, Beyond the Sea as the Bulletopia storyline returns later this year!

With everything wrapping up next issue, it can only mean that an all-new line-up is heading your way in Prog 2250, on sale 22 September, and as is traditional now it’ll be a bumper 48-page humdinger with a stunning roster of strips.

What can you expect within its pulse-pounding pages? Well, first up writers Rob Williams and Arthur Wyatt collaborate with artist Jake Lynch on the Dredd thriller The Hard Way, which finds Ol’ Stoney-Face and Accounts Judge Maitland targeted for assassination on the undersea waystation of Atlantis. Expect explosions, heavy-duty firepower, and a more motley crew of
mercenaries you could possibly hope to meet!



2000 AD Prog 2248 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!
