The latest title in 2000 AD‘s series of digital-only collections, John Smith and Paul Peart’s Slaughter Bowl is a no-holds-barred, riot of reptilian rampage!

It’s the worst day of Stanley Modest’s life. He’s been fired, no-one likes him, and the doctors want to pull the plug on his dangerously ill wife. To top it all off the police find hundreds of bodies buried in his house – including his own children!

Although he protests his innocence he is convicted and ends up on death row. 

For Stanley, there is only one way out – the Slaughter Bowl! A deadly battle royale where criminals riding dinosaurs attempt to annihilate each other for cash and prizes! 

Collected in digital-only graphic novel form for the first time, this unforgettable strip was part of 2000 AD’s infamous ‘Summer Offensive’ in 1993, when writers Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, and John Smith were let loose to rewrite the recipe for thrill-power with an all-out assault on the senses! 

Will Stanley survive? Will he earn enough for his wife’s life-saving surgery? And where did all those bodies come from? Find out for yourself in Slaughter Bowl!
