Mega-City One as you’ve never seen it before – Megatropolis is out now!

This is the world of Judge Dredd as you’ve never seen it before – the spectacular Megatropolis is out now!

This visionary ‘Elseworlds‘-style series by writer Kenneth Niemand (Judge Dredd) and artist Dave Taylor (Batman & Superman: World’s Finest) radically reimagines the world of Judge Dredd, creating a stunning retro techno-futurist city inspired by Fritz Lang’s 1927 film, Metropolis.

Disgraced Officer Amy Jarra and Detective Joe ‘Choirboy’ Rico navigate the crime-ridden underbelly of the glamourous Metropolis, attempting to solve the murder of undercover Detective Fisher.

Transforming Mega-City One into an art deco cityscape, Niemand and Taylor spin a tale of futuristic noir with luscious art and jaw-dropping set pieces. This hardcover collection includes a gallery of cover art and never seen before concept sketches.

Preview: Bad City Blue by Alan Grant and Robin Smith

We’re very excited to share a preview of the next title in our series of digital-only 2000 AD collections, Bad City Blue by Alan Grant and Robin Smith!

Built into an asteroid and floating in space, Bader City is a crumbling, decaying ghetto controlled by armed gangs. The only kind of order is kept by guys like Blue, a trouble-shooting ‘button man’ who enforces order at the behest of the top-siders.

He thinks he’s saving the city for ‘decent folk’- but unfortunately for him, it looks like the elite he serves is not as benevolent as he once thought. Created by writer Alan Grant and artist Robin Smith, Bad City Blue is a bleak highlight from the mid 1980s, full of class warfare, gritty sci-fi, and big concepts.

You can check out the first four pages of Bad City Blue below, and it’s out on August 4th – 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.

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!

Preview: Time Flies by Garth Ennis, Philip Bond, John Beeston and Roger Landridge!

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.

Preview: Flesh: Midnight Cowboys by Pat Mills and James McKay!

We’re very excited to share a preview of Flesh: Midnight Cowboys ahead of its release in just under two weeks’ time! It’s the latest title in our brand new series of digital-only 2000 AD collections for 2021!

Created by Pat Mills, Flesh was one of the original stories featured all the way back in Prog 1, and quickly became a fan-favourite for bloodthirsty readers. Originally running from 1977 until 1979, there was a smattering of stories in the 1990s, but in 2007 the dinosaurs were brought back to life and Flesh was fully revived, and has been a staple of the Prog ever since.

In the original strip, and this – the modern continuation with art by James McKay – time travelling corporations send humans back to the ancient past to farm dinosaurs for meat to feed a hungry future, but the employees of Trans Time discover pretty quickly that their dinner likes to bite back!

You can check out the first four pages of Flesh: Midnight Cowboys below, and it’s out on April 7th – 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.
