MEG 441 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 441 is out now!

Welcome to the February issue of the mighty Megazine, and the stunning current line-up continues as Dredd finds himself up to his neck in trouble in Profundia, Zane evades the law in Surfer, there’s more Badrock intrigue in Lawless, Nia makes deals in Diamond Dogs, and Goya’s fungal infection starts to take its toll in Death Cap.

Elsewhere, Stephen Jewell chats with Garth Ennis and PJ Holden about their new war title The Lion & the Eagle, and Karl Stock
interviews Brian Bolland and David Roach on the subject of the amazing Apex Edition of Bolland’s original 2000 AD artwork, plus Scott Montomgery reveals the trials of collating forty-five years of Thrill-power into the 2000 AD Encylopedia, the mammoth hardback of which is out this month!

The publication of this back-breaking tome, of course, coincides with the GGC’s forty-fifth birthday celebrations at the end of this month. As with every milestone the prog has reached, its continued success is an incredible testament to the work of countless creators over the decades, and the loyalty of you committed Thrill-seekers. Keep an eye online for news of special anniversary events!
