2000 AD Prog 2264 is out now! Featuring more new Judge Dredd, Proteus Vex, The Order, Kingmaker, and The Out!

PROG 2264 out now


Back again for more circuit-shattering excitement, Squaxx? Who can blame you — with a line-up like this, there’s no question that your diodes would be demanding more.

Sky-courier Mona Plankhurst has to avoid the full arsenal of Justice Department in part two of Working Girl; Proteus Vex is a wanted being in Desire Paths; we learn something of Cassi’s past in The Order; Ichnar establishes his powerbase in Kingmaker; and we reach the final ghafflebette instalment of The Out Book Two, Dan Abnett and Mark Harrison’s breakout hit series that has unquestionably struck a chord with you Terrans.

Needless to say, Tharg wouldn’t be the illustrious editor of the GGC if he hadn’t already charged those creator-bots with a third arc of Cyd’s adventures, so look out for that towards the end of 2022!

Talking of year-long projects, you may have noticed a single-page feature in last week’s issue — Scott Montgomery’s Brimful of Thrills on the 45 articles will appear in every prog over the next twelve months, each one covering the highlights of a year in the life of this pulse-pounding publication!



2000 AD Prog 2264 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!

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 Judges — zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, courier Mona Plankhurst had become involved in a highly dangerous delivery scheme…

KINGMAKER // Falls The Shadow // Part Three!

The Nine Kingdoms may have defeated Ichnar the Wraith King to live in relative peace, but they hadn’t reckoned on the Thorn — a race of aliens that occupied their world with the intention of strip-mining its magic. Wizard Ablard, ork Crixus and dryad Princess Yarrow believed they may have the means to stop them — but Ichnar manifested in Ablard, and Crixus and Yarrow were forced to kill him. Ichnar’s spirit escaped…

THE ORDER // Fantastic Voyage / Part Three!

Throughout history, mankind has been under threat of extermination by the Wurms, creatures that break into our reality. Defending humanity are the men and women of THE ORDER, a band of warriors that have fought the entities across the centuries. But time has become fractured, and now the despotic Francis Bacon is determined to rule a vast empire. Anna Kohl and the others, fleeing Bacon, have tumbled over Times Edge…

THE OUT // Book Two / Part Fourteen!

The furthest edge of the universe, far into the future. Cyd Finlea is photo-journalist working for the publishers Global Neographic, travelling deep into outer space — otherwise known as THE OUT — and cataloguing the alien societies that she encounters. She left Earth ten years ago and has been seeking other ex-pat humans, accompanied by her sentient flatspace bag — but now she’s discovered that she’s been contaminated by the Tankinar, turning her into a cyborg…

PROTEUS VEX // Desire Paths / Part Three!

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 — who is operated by a flesh-pilot — has now become an enemy of the Alliance when he released information about past war crimes…
