PROG 2266 out now


Welcome to your weekly brain-blast, Terrans, courtesy of our crack coterie of creator droids, all toiling their rivets off — under Tharg’s baleful glare, of course — to supply you with the Thrill-power that we know you crave.

This prog we reach the ghafflebette finale to current Judge Dredd thriller Working Girl, plus there’s the latest instalments of The Order, Proteus Vex, Kingmaker and Saphir — enough zarjazosity, we believe, to make any humanoid blow their circuits, so ensure your buffers are primed and fully functioning before commencing reading!

As we see off January — always a month that most are glad to see end — we edge closer to the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’s forty-fifth birthday celebrations. The mammoth 2000 AD Encyclopedia is released on 16 February, which is a necessary reference tome for any Squaxx, although we recommend reinforcing your bookshelf before adding it to your Thrill-library.

Keep any eye out too for The Best of John Wagner’s Judge Dredd, coinciding with the lawman’s anniversary, featuring stories such as Father Earth, Full Mental Jacket and Tarantula!



2000 AD Prog 2266 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!

KINGMAKER // Falls The Shadow // Part Five!

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.
