Ahead of its release in a couple of weeks’ time we’re excited to share a preview of the next title in our series of digital-only 2000 AD collections – Time Flies!
First published in the 90s in Progs 700 to 711, and returning as Tempus Fugitive in progs 1015-1023, Time Flies was a time travel comedy series written by Garth Ennis following the misadventures of Squadron Leader Bertie Sharp, a WWII fighter pilot, and future time cop Trace Bullet as they try to recapture Herman Goering from pirates… on a time travelling JCB.
While since its initial publication Ennis has been vocal in his dislike for the series, there’s still a huge amount to enjoy here – this is silly fun, packed with affectionate absurdity, and full to the brim of Philip Bond’s effortlessly cool artwork.
You can check out the first four pages of Time Flies below, and it’s out on May 5th – 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.
