We’re very excited to share a preview of the next title in our series of digital-only 2000 AD collections, Firekind by John Smith and Paul Marshall!

Dragons. Flying rocks. Humans invading a supposedly-primitive culture of blue-skinned aliens… sound familiar? Discover more than just another blockbuster with John Smith and Paul Marshall’s Firekind!

First appearing in Progs 828 to 840, this story follows human xeno-botanist Hendrick Larsen who travels to the alien jungle planet Gennyo-Leil whose atmosphere is a toxic hallucinogen. Though he initially gains the inhabitants’ trust, his mission is compromised by the arrival of a merciless gang of mercenary poacher/torturers. But Gennyo-Leil is not without defences.

You can check out the first four pages of Firekind below, and it’s out on September 1st – available from the 2000 AD app, as DRM-free download from the 2000 AD webshop, and on Amazon Kindle devices.

The new digital releases will be available from the 2000 AD app for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices, as DRM-free PDF/CBZ downloads from the 2000 AD webshop, and on Amazon Kindle devices.
