PROG 2267 out now


We enter February — the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’s birthday month, which we’ll be marking in just three weeks’ time with a bumper prog as Tharg’s illustrious organ celebrates forty-five years upon this planet — and the Thrills are heating up nicely.

There’s more SF action and adventure in Proteus Vex, Saphir, Kingmaker and The Order, plus we have a complete Judge Dredd tale from the Niemand and Richardson droids!

Talking of anniversary events, the Cartoon Museum in London is collaborating with this pulsepounding publication to mark four and a half decades of the zero-tolerance lawman with a special exhibition called Dredd @ 45, which is running right now until 24 April 2022. Described as an ‘In Focus’ exhibition, it takes a look at the changing styles and work practices over the years that have seen the Judge evolve into the iconic figure that he is today.

From the physical cut-and-stick techniques used in the 1970s to the digital methods employed now, it charts the change in comics creation, and yet Ol’ Stoney-Face himself remains resolutely the same
