2000 AD Prog 2277 is out now! Featuring more new Judge Dredd, Intestinauts, Brink, Fiends of the Eastern Front and Hope!

PROG 2277 out now


We bid you galactic greetings, Terrans, as we unleash another salvo of circuit-shattering Thrills, precision-engineered to energise your imaginations.

There’s more Apocalypse War action in Judge Dredd, gut-busting drama in Intestinauts, Hollyweird chills in Hope, supernatural intrigue in Fiends of the Eastern Front, and fear and unease on the final frontier in Brink — a line-up, we’re sure you’ll agree, that is positively swimming in zarjazosity!

Alas, some sad news reached the Command Module just hours before this issue was beamed to the print-bots, and that was that art-droid Garry Leach had died on 26 March, aged sixy-seven. An incredibly skilled artist, his scrotnig work on The V.C.s — alternating with Cam Kennedy — was expertly textured, and he drew some stunning Dredd episodes, including Night of the Bloodbeast, Attack of the 50-ft Woman, and Ten Years On, which saw the return of Prog 2’s villain Whitey a decade later. He did great work outside of the GGC, of course, including co-creating the new Marvelman with Alan Moore for Warrior, amongst others. RIP, Garry.



2000 AD Prog 2277 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!

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain Constanta and his Romanian platoon.

Now, in 1963, the bloodsucking creature is in East Berlin – but has been captured by Baba Yaga…

HOPE // In The Shadows / Reel One – Part Two!

An alternate 1940s USA. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means, and consequently magic is a part of everyday life. Mallory HOPE is one such skilled operative, though calling on the dark arts takes its toll on the user. He’s also a P.I., hired for all manner of down n’ dirty jobs, and being based in Los Angeles means he’s often involved in the movie business — which has a magic all of its own…
