MEG 436 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 436 is out now!

Welcome to the September Megazine, and alongside the latest instalments of Devlin Waugh, Angelic and The Returners we have the final episode of Diamond Dogs II and a complete Dredd thriller from Rory McConville and Nick Dyer, How Do You
Solve a Problem Like Francisco?, that acts as an epilogue to the Project Providence storyline as Ol’ Stoney-Face assesses the fitness of Dan Francisco post-kidnapping.

We’ll be returning to the consequences of MC-1’s PP scandal, and its place in the global community, in McConville and Staz Johnson’s four-parter Praise Zort!, coming early next year. Elsewhere in this issue, we’ve got interviews with former editorial droid Simon Geller and designer turned prose novelist Rian Hughes, plus Rob Williams reveals the secrets of Out, his and Will Conrad’s new WWII/vampire title from US publishers AWA.

The Williams script-bot returns to Dredd in 2000 AD this month, partnering with Arthur Wyatt and Jake Lynch for the Atlantis-set The Hard Way, starting in jumping-on issue Prog 2250, where you’ll also find new series of Scarlet Traces, The Diaboliks, Pandora Perfect and, er, The Out! (Hmm, could this get confusing…?)

Judge Dredd Megazine 435 is out now!

If you’re a subscriber you may have received this on Saturday 14 August (another good reason, of course, to have your Thrill-power delivered direct to your door), in which case there’s just enough time to remind you that it’s Free Comic
Book Day on the 14th, moved from its usual May slot because of the pandemic.

As usual, lots of freebies to be snaffled from the participating comic stores, including another special 2000 AD issue, which features the opening chapters of Rob Williams and Si Fraser’s Hershey: Disease and Mike Carroll and John Higgins’ Dreadnoughts: Breaking Ground (ahead of their imminent graphic-novel collections) as well as a corking all-new Judge Dredd six-page story from Al Ewing and Caspar Wijngaard.

If you miss FCBD, these issues can usually be picked up online, but the initiative is intended to encourage in-store shopping, and Thrill-merchants, like most retailers, could do with your support in the wake of a devastating eighteen months.

Meanwhile, in this Meg, we’ve got more Dredd, Devlin Waugh, Diamond Dogs, The Returners and Angelic plus chats with artists Steve Roberts and Lee Sullivan. Enjoy!

MEG 434 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 434 is out now!

As well as working as a warning about a future society being ruled by a militarised polise force, the Judge Dredd strip has also presented a twenty-second century in which the planet is irrevocably scarred by nuclear war and environmental collapse.


The Cursed Earth is an irradiated wasteland, the Black Atlantic polluted to the point where any life within it isseverely mutated, and most produce is now synthetically created. It’s a bleak vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth, and if we want to stop it becoming a reality we all need to play a part in preventing climate change.

Paul Goodenough’s Rewriting Extinction project is the latest to draw attention to the crisis with a massive comic-book populated by three hundred writers, artists, activists and film-makers, from Alan Moore to Ricky Gervais. You can find out more about the initiative within this Meg.

Elsewhere, we have the return of Gordon Rennie and Lee Carter’s Angel Gang reimagining Angelic, plus Dredd, Devlin Waugh, Diamond Dogs and The Returners, plus interviews with two writers from very different publishing eras – 2000 AD and Action sub-editor Roy Preston, and up-and-comer Ram V. Enjoy!

The latest Dark Judges epic Deliverance comes to its thrilling finale this issue, suitably marked by another spectacular wraparound cover by series artist Nick Percival.

Elsewhere, we have the start of a new Judge Dredd story, Project Providence, by Rory McConville and Staz Johnson, picking up on plot threads from last year’s The Fugitive, plus there’s the latest instalments of Devlin Waugh, Diamond Dogs and The Returners.

In addition, we have a chat with the creative teams behind this summer’s pair of specials – Alec Worley and Dani spill the beans on Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh, a fantasy saga featuring the character that sprang out of Scream!, which hits the racks at the end of this month; and Mike Carroll, Maura McHugh and Liam Johnson reveal all about the 2021 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special, out 7 July, a Dreddverse-centric collection of tales linked by over-arching narrative.

On a final note, we were saddened to hear last month that Dave Evans had died. Often credited as Bolt-01, he was the editor of 2000 AD fanzines Zarjaz, Dogbreath and Futurequake, and a friendly and enthusiastic regular at conventions. He’ll be much missed. RIP, Bolt.

The third of Tharg’s trio of spring 3rillers starts this prog with Arthur Wyatt and Pye Parr reuniting for another tale of those gut-busting ‘bots the Intestinauts in the scrotnig Symbiotic Love Triangle (which, admittedly, sounds like one of the prog-rock noodlers we used to listen to back in the seventies).

Elsewhere, we reach the zarjaz finales for both Dredd’s current case, A Penitent Man (which, judging by the feedback, has gone down a storm with you Squaxx) and the current arc of Visions of Deadworld, and folk-horror Thistlebone and fantasy epic Feral & Foe barrel towards their climaxes in a few weeks’ time.

That can only mean ghafflebette new Thrills are waiting in the wings, such as Department K’s first full-length series and
Noam Chimpsky’s solo outing, Chimpsky’s Law!


But before that there’s the matter of the second of 2021’s Regened issues, heading your way in Prog 2233 — a collection of all-ages stories overseen by Tharg’s indefatigable nephew Joko-Jargo.

It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating the Malign Lord. With their leader dead, his minions are scattered, fleeing retribution from the Wretchfinders. Necromancer Bode and warrior Wrath are two such beings, and were offered a deal — hunt and kill their own kind or be declared FERAL & FOE. Now, while on a quest for Golgone the Necromancer, they’ve been captured by Woodwoes…

VISIONS OF DEADWORLD // Transpolar // Part Two!

The planet that eventually became known as DEADWORLD was once a regular civilisation existing in a dimension parallel to our own. But the end of days is coming, and creatures known as the Dark Judges are spreading their contagion, exterminating all life, which they see as a crime. Zombie ‘greys’ are doing their bidding, having consumed the Dead Fluids, and other monstrosities stalk the streets, preying on survivors…

THISTLEBONE // POISONED ROOTS // Part Ten!

Britain, 2020. It’s been over a year since journalist Seema Chaudry accompanied cult survivor Avril Easton back to the village of Harrowvale, the site of her terryifying experiences at the hands of Jasper Hillman’s THISTLEBONE worshippers, a crazed occult group that believed in an ancient woodland deity. In the process of researching for a book on the Thistlebone legend, Seema believes much of it centres around one man — Malcolm Kinniburgh…

THARG’S 3RILLERS // SYMBIOTIC LOVE TRIANGLE // Part One!

Three episodes, one complete, self-contained story — a condensed hit of super-charged Thrill-power beamed to you directly from the Nerve Centre! It’s the far future, and technology has evolved to the point where nanobots called Intestinauts can be ingested to help with internal medical conditions. These plucky little droids are then flushed back into the system, where their cores are uploaded, ready to go into battle again…

2000 AD Prog 2229 is out now!

2000 AD Prog 2229 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Thistlebone, Visions of Deadworld and Feral & Foe, plus a scrotnig new Future Shock!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2229 is OUT NOW!

Welcome back to your weekly hit of cosmic zarjazness, Terrans, as the crack squad of creator-droids seek to supercharge your reality with the gift of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic.

Alongside the scrotnig ongoing arcs for Judge Dredd, Feral & Foe and Thistlebone, this prog also features a complete Future Shock by Mark McCann and Glenn Fabry, and the start of a two-part Vision of Deadworld from Kek-W and Dave Kendall!


The week that Tharg’s dictating these words to the cowering editorial note-taker/foot-rest sees non-essential shops in England open for the first time in months as lockdown restrictions ease. Many of you Squaxx will no doubt be keen to get back to your regular routine of picking up this Mighty Organ from your local Thrill-merchant every Wednesday, and we sincerely hope that this is the start of the process of returning to something resembling normality.


After twelve months and more of Tharg’s minions being scattered to their domiciles, we will have to consider at some point when to open up the Command Module and bring them all back in. Will be kind of weird having them knocking about the place again…

OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine 431

More thrills abound in Megazine 431, with new Dredd, Deliverance, Megatropolis, Devlin Waugh and Diamond Dogs!

Judge Dredd Megazine 431 is out now!

This month we reach the final episode of Ken Niemand and Dave Taylor’s Megatropolis, another hugely popular series that commenced in last year’s thirtieth anniversary Meg, but, fear not, we’ll be returning to this beautifully realised alternate Mega-City at some point in the future.

Elsewhere, alongside the latest instalment of Deliverance, we have three new stories – Dredd learns that you don’t drokk with Bob, courtesy of Niemand and Ian Richardson; James Peaty and Warren Pleece reunite for another visit to the streets of Brit-Cit in Diamond Dogs II, following on from the debut series that ran in Megs 409-414; and we have another complete Devlin Waugh tale, The Lord of Lies, by Aleš Kot and Mike Dowling, setting up a major arc that starts next issue.

Plus there’s a chat with possibly heavy metal’s biggest Dredd fan, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, about Z2 Comics’ new project Among the Living, a graphic-novel adaptation of the seminal thrash album, which features Chris Weston drawing the ‘I am the Law’ story, scripted by Ian himself. Look out for it in May!

JUDGE DREDD // Don’t Drokk With Bob // Part One!

Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Home to over 130 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, with the irradiated wasteland known as the Cursed Earth to the west. Unemployment is rife, boredom universal and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

MEGATROPOLIS // Part Eight!

Imagine a Mega-City One from an alternate timeline – less the gleaming metropolis of the twenty-second century but instead an art deco retro-future variation. Joe Rico is the one good cop in a police department riddled with corruption, and he’s just been joined by a new partner in the shape of Amy Jara. Now, the Dredd vigilante has crashed the mayor’s ball…

Having recently befriended a demon, Tittivillus, he’s become suspicious of it…

Brit-Cit, 2142 AD. The remnants of old Britain still exist alongside the twenty-second century Mega-City, and these ruins are fought over by the Brit-Cit street gangs, who see them as valuable territory. Nia Jones used to run with the Diamond Dogs, but she was also a Justice Dept informer, often playing both sides against each other. Now, though, the Dogs have disbanded…

DARK JUDGES // DELIVERANCE // Part Eight!

After the events on the Mayflower, the cargo ship the Solips discovered the Dark Judges Death, Fire and Mortis floating in space, and the alien superfiends murdered the crew. They subsequently also decimated a colony, Dominion, before Mega-City marines destroyed the planet. Death was trapped in a Boing® bubble, and has been recovered by the Mortarian cult…
