Judge Dredd Megazine 443 is OUT NOW, with more thrills abound from Dredd, Diamond Dogs, Death Cap, Surfer and Lawless!

MEG 443 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 443 is out now!

We trust that you all enjoyed the forty-fifth anniversary online convention last month as an extraordinary number of guests from the world of comics and beyond were assembled to talk all things 2000 AD. If you missed any of the panels, fear not, they’re up on the Galaxy’s Greatest’s YouTube channel for you to peruse at your leisure.

Meanwhile, this month Rebellion is expanding its publishing empire with the first issue of Monster Fun, the old IPC humour title reborn for the twenty-first century as an ongoing bi-monthly anthology, ideal for kids looking for some Easter holiday entertainment. You can find all the info on how to subscribe at monsterfun.co.uk!

Elsewhere, we’ve got the final part of current Dredd thriller Praise Zort, the penultimate instalment of Surfer, and all the latest action in Brit-Cit, Badrock and the Cursed Earth in Diamond Dogs, Lawless and Death Cap.

Alas, some sad news reached us just before this Meg went to press in that V.C.s and Dredd artist Garry Leach had died, aged sixty-seven. A supremely talented creator, his pages were full of character and texture, and he’ll be very much missed. A full obit in next month’s issue

JUDGE DREDD // Praise Zort! // Part Four!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. This vast urban hell on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to over 160 million citizens. Unemployment is endemic, and crime is rampant. Stemming the tide of chaos are the Judges, future law-enforcers empowered to dispense instant justice. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law! Now, he’s in Profundia to secure support for a vital vote…


Script: T.C. Eglington / Art: Boo Cook / Letters: Simon Bowland

DEATH CAP // Part Five!

The Cursed Earth, 2143 AD. This blasted, irradiated wilderness covers much of what’s left of post-apocalyptic twenty-second century North America. Here, mutants exiled from living in the Mega-Cities scratch out a meagre existence in ramshackle townships. Former Judge Anita Goya’s family have been massacred, and she’s gone on the hunt for the perpetrators, but she’s been infected with a fungal virus…


Script: James Peaty / Art: Warren Pleece / Letters: Simon Bowland

DIAMOND DOGS // III // Part Five!

Brit-Cit, 2143 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’s also a Justice Dept informer, trying to buy her way out. Now, she’s working with Detective-Judge Armitage…


Script: Dan Abnett / Art: Phil Winslade / Letters: Jim Campbell

LAWLESS // Ballots Over Badrock // Part Five!

Colonial Marshal Metta Lawson was appointed to the frontier township of Badrock on the planet 43 Rega, intent on stamping her authority on the colony. But in doing so, Lawson made many enemies, including Munce, Inc., the mega-corporation that funded Badrock. Now, with the SJS also running things, Lawson’s decided to quit her post and run for mayor…


Script: John Wagner / Art: Colin MacNeil / Colours: Chris Blythe / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

SURFER // Part Five!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Skysurfing is one of the most popular pastimes in the twenty-second century metropolis, a sport that requires a great deal of skill and agility. Young Zane Perks is a particularly gifted surfer, and has just auditioned to be in a movie recreating the famous Supersurf 7. He’s won the part as the stunt stand-in for the lead actor, but the movie’s a scam…

JUDGE DREDD // The Citadel / Part Nine!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Home to over 160 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant and only the Judges — zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, a former cadet called Winterton, due to be euthanised, is relating a story from the Apocalypse War forty years ago…


Script: Ian Edginton / Art: Tiernen Trevallion/ Letters: Annie Parkhouse

FIENDS OF THE EASTERN FRONT // 1963 / Part Six!

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain Constanta and his Romanian platoon. But Schmitt was not the first trooper to meet Constanta — the vampire was on the Western Front too, in France in 1916. Now, in 1963, the bloodsucking creature is in East Berlin – and has just escaped Baba Yaga…


Script: Guy Adams / Art: Jimmy Broxton / Letters: Jim Campbell

HOPE // In The Shadows / Reel One – Part Three!

An alternate 1940s USA. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means, and consequently magic is a part of everyday life. Mallory HOPE is one such skilled operative, though calling on the dark arts takes its toll on the user. He’s also a P.I., hired for all manner of down n’ dirty jobs, and being based in Los Angeles means he’s often involved in the movie business — and a film production appears cursed…


Script: Arthur Wyatt / Art & Letters: Pye Parr

INTESTINAUTS // The Bowel Impactors / Part Four!

For stomach upsets, future technology has developed nano-robots called INTESTINAUTS, who fight parasites in the gut. These micro-droids are ingested orally, then once their brave battle against the various horrors that can be found in the stomach is over, they take the Big Flush, ready to be uploaded back to headquarters. But this squad of Intestinauts have lost the upload signal, and must cross a fatberg…


Script: Dan Abnett / Art: INJ Culbard / Letters: Simon Bowland

BRINK // Mercury Retrograde / Part Nine!

The late 21st century, and through environmental catastrophe and industrial overload Earth has been reduced to a wasteland. Mankind finally evacuated the planet in 2072 and millions were housed in a number of deep-space Habitats. But life on these cramped, overcrowded stations is tense, often spilling over into madness. Sects are rife, and both the Habitat Security Division and certain journalists are investigating …

PROG 2277 out now

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2277 is OUT NOW!

We bid you galactic greetings, Terrans, as we unleash another salvo of circuit-shattering Thrills, precision-engineered to energise your imaginations.

There’s more Apocalypse War action in Judge Dredd, gut-busting drama in Intestinauts, Hollyweird chills in Hope, supernatural intrigue in Fiends of the Eastern Front, and fear and unease on the final frontier in Brink — a line-up, we’re sure you’ll agree, that is positively swimming in zarjazosity!

Alas, some sad news reached the Command Module just hours before this issue was beamed to the print-bots, and that was that art-droid Garry Leach had died on 26 March, aged sixy-seven. An incredibly skilled artist, his scrotnig work on The V.C.s — alternating with Cam Kennedy — was expertly textured, and he drew some stunning Dredd episodes, including Night of the Bloodbeast, Attack of the 50-ft Woman, and Ten Years On, which saw the return of Prog 2’s villain Whitey a decade later. He did great work outside of the GGC, of course, including co-creating the new Marvelman with Alan Moore for Warrior, amongst others. RIP, Garry.

Expect droid-on-droid action in the stinky surrounds of a futuristic sewer system as a fiery fight on a gargantuan fatberg has explosive consequences!

Elsewhere, Judge Dredd and his small squad of cadets infiltrate the mysterious Citadel of the story’s title, Constanta catches up with his target in East Berlin though he may not be all that he seems, and Maslow’s investigations into union workings bring him closer to a sect conspiracy in Brink.

All in all, another zarjaz issue from my emerald empire, delivered by my Command Module meks for your Terran enjoyment.

MEG 442 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 442 is out now!

As you’d expect with 2000 AD having just celebrated its forty-fifth birthday, there’s lots going on in the House of Tharg this month, not least a very exciting online convention across the weekend of 26-27 March featuring a stunning line-up of special
guests from the world of comics and beyond.

Expect to see the likes of John Wagner, Garth Ennis, Sean Phillips, Alex De Campi, John McCrea, and Dan Cornwell alongside
Robin Ince, Ian Rankin, Mitch Benn, Dane Baptiste, and more to be announced. Head over to 2000AD.com, where there’ll be panels, interviews, announcements and exclusive merchandise!

Alas, some sad news reached us at the beginning of February that veteran Ro-Busters and Dan Dare artist Ian Kennedy had died, aged eighty-nine. An extraordinary talent, whose war-comics art is instantly recognisable, he had a remarkable career, drawing everything from Spitfires to spaceships, and numerous creators pay tribute to him in Karl Stock’s obituary this issue. Elsewhere, Karl also tracks down some of those writers and artists that briefly appeared in the GGC over the last four and a half
decades, and sees what they’re up to now. Enjoy, creeps!

PROG 2273 out now

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2273 is OUT NOW!

The vampire Constanta returns this prog in a new series of Fiends of the Eastern Front by Ian Edginton and Tiernen Trevallion. Having seen him on the Western Front in the First World War, and learnt of his origins, we fast-forward along the timeline to 1963, at the height of the Cold War, where the bloodsucker is an instrument of espionage.

Given the worrying events taking place in Europe at the time of writing, the idea of East vs West is unfortunately more on-point than anticipated — alongside Judge Dredd battling invading Sovs in The Citadel, sometimes Tharg’s powers of prescience scare even him.

Thankfully, you’ve also got the deep-space intrigue of Brink, the all-out alien action in Proteus Vex, and the epic fantasy of Kingmaker to distract you from impeding reality! There’s more distraction too in Meg 442, which is out right now, and features the latest instalments of Dredd, Death Cap, Surfer, Diamond Dogs and Lawless, plus the third chapter of Hawk the Slayer, a moving tribute to the late art-droid Ian Kennedy, and lots more.

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain Constanta and his Romanian platoon. But Schmitt was not the first trooper to meet
Constanta — the vampire was on the Western Front too, in France in 1916. Now, in 1963, the bloodsucking creature of the night has a new position in the Uncivil Service…

KINGMAKER // Falls The Shadow / Part Ten!

The Nine Kingdoms may have defeated Ichnar the Wraith King to live in relative peace, but they hadn’t reckoned on the Thorn — a race of aliens that occupied their world with the intention of strip-mining its magic. Wizard Ablard, ork Crixus and dryad Princess Yarrow believed they may have the means to stop them — and now Duke Eschatus has been thrown into space, meaning Crixus is ostensibly in charge…

PROTEUS VEX // Desire Paths / Part Twelve!

Another galaxy, the far future. The centuries-long war between the Alliance and the Obdurate people is over, a conflict brought to an end with the deaths of billions when the Alliance teleported a dying white dwarf star into the Obdurate system. Imperium agent PROTEUS VEX — who is operated by a flesh-pilot — has now become an enemy of the Alliance when he released information about past war crimes…


Script: Dan Abnett / Art: INJ Culbard / Letters: Simon Bowland

BRINK // Mercury Retrograde / Part Four!

The late 21st century, and through environmental catastrophe and industrial overload Earth has been reduced to a wasteland. Mankind finally evacuated the planet in 2072 and millions were housed in a number of deep-space Habitats. But life on these
cramped, overcrowded stations is tense, often spilling over into madness. Sects are rife, and both the Habitat Security Division and certain journalists are investigating …

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2272 is OUT NOW!

It’s that time of the week again, Thrill-hungry humanoids, when your circuits are given another good workout by the ghafflebette contents of Tharg’s illustrious organ.

As editor of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, it’s Tharg’s job to corral the Command Module’s team of creator-meks to bring you the finest stories in the known universe, and any droid not delivering one hundred per cent zarjazosity will face his terrifying Betelgeusian wrath. Thankfully, forever toiling under this very real threat means they’re committed to pushing their script and art talents to the maximum — and thus you have scrotnig progs like this one, where every strip thrums with sheer cosmic energy.

There’s explosive wartime action in Judge Dredd, sinister intrigue in Brink, deep-space conflict in Proteus Vex, left-field developments in the sword n’ sorcery saga that is Kingmaker, and darkness on the edge of time in the nerve-shredding finale to The Order: Fantastic Voyage!

But as 2000 AD rolls on, it means that standard must be maintained every seven days — so look out for new Fiends of the Eastern Front next issue!

JUDGE DREDD // The Citadel / Part Three!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Home to over 160 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant and only the Judges — zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, a former cadet called Winterton, due to be euthanised, is relating a story from the Apocalypse War forty years ago…

THE ORDER // Fantastic Voyage / Part Eleven!

Throughout history, mankind has been under threat of extermination by the Wurms, creatures that break into our reality. Defending humanity are the men and women of THE ORDER, a band of warriors that have fought the entities across the centuries. But time has become fractured, and now the despotic Francis Bacon is determined to rule a vast empire. Now, the various members of The Order have become separated at the edge of time…

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2271 is OUT NOW!

We trust your circuits have fully recovered from the bumper birthday bonanza that was last week’s anniversary issue — we’re back to the regular page-count this prog but the Thrills are still giant-sized as Judge Dredd: The Citadel and Brink: Mercury Retrograde launch into their scrotnig second chapters, while Proteus Vex, Kingmaker and The Order all build towards their respective climaxes, with Fantastic Voyage’s finale coming in just seven days’ time!

But the forty-fifth celebrations are not over yet — not least because the beginning of March marks the anniversary of a certain 22nd century lawman’s debut — for as you will no doubt have seen from the adverts, the Command Module is hosting a special
free online convention at 2000AD.com on 26-27 March that will feature a plethora of zarjaz guests talking about the Galaxy’s Greatest and its pervading influence.

Not only will there be comics creators like John Wagner, Garth Ennis, Alex De Campi and Dan Cornwell attending, but also fans from outside the field, including Robin Ince, Ian Rankin, Mitch Benn, Dane Baptiste, and more. Don’t miss it, Terrans!
