2000 AD Prog 2282 is out now! Featuring more new Brink, Fiends of the Eastern Front and Hope, Dredd and Dexter!

PROG 2282 out now


Welcome to the latest edition of the weekly brain-frazzling sci-fi extravaganza that is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, and within these pulse-pounding pages you’ll find more ghafflebette graphic excitement courtesy of our crack squad of creator droids.

Dredd, Fiends of the Eastern Front, Hope, Brink and Dexter — just that roll-call of names is enough to get your diodes humming in anticipation, we’re sure, so steel your Thrill-buffers before you plunge inside, Terrans! In fact, you may have to seek out the next upgrade because Judge Dredd Megazine 444 is out now too and reading both in such a short space of time could dangerously trip your sensors if you don’t have the latest software.

Why is the May Meg so potentially lethal? Because inside you’ll find a brand-new Dredd thriller from Arthur Wyatt and Ian Richardson, the final parts of both Surfer and Hawk the Slayer, plus the latest instalments of Death Cap, Diamond Dogs and Lawless. Add to that a moving tribute to artist Garry Leach, an interview with Dexter pencil-bot Tazio Bettin, and a peek inside the 45th Anniversary Art Book, and it’s seriously scrotnig!



2000 AD Prog 2282 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!

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. But Schmitt was not the first trooper to meet Constanta — the vampire was on the Western Front too, in France in 1916. Now, in 1963, the bloodsucking creature was working in East Berlin — but he was betrayed…

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

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 — and a film production appears cursed…

But now a rogue A.I. is at large, and Dexter, Carrie Hosanna and Billi Octavo are on the run, trying to get to sanctuary in Mangapore…

Sects are rife, and both the Habitat Security Division and certain journalists are investigating …
