Judge Dredd Megazine 444 is OUT NOW, with more thrills abound from Dredd, Diamond Dogs, Death Cap, Surfer and Lawless!

MEG 444 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 444 is out now!

A couple of endings this issue as John Wagner and Colin MacNeil’s high-speed series Surfer reaches the finale of its first arc, and we have the climax of Garth Ennis and Henry Flint’s Hawk the Slayer mini-series. This isn’t the last of the Ennis droid we’ll be seeing in the House of Tharg, however, as there’s the small matter of the Battle-Action Special coming out later this year, featuring an amazing line-up of artists including Kevin O’Neill, John Higgins and more, and he’ll also be doing a bit of retro-fun for the Xmas prog. Henry will also be back in the prog in September for a project that promises to be mind-blowing!

Elsewhere, Dredd heads to the remains of the Atlantis tunnel complex after the events of last year’s The Hard Way to deal with rogue A.I. Qaganon in Q-topia by Arthur Wyatt and Ian Richardson, plus there’s the latest instalments of Death Cap and Lawless, and the penultimate part of Diamond Dogs.

A great many writers and artists come forward to pay tribute to Garry Leach, who sadly died in March, in Stephen Jewell’s obituary, and Karl Stock chats with SinDex artist Tazio Bettin and takes a look at the 2000 AD 45th Anniversary Art Book, out this month!

JUDGE DREDD // Q-Topia // Part One!

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, the remains of Atlantis still hide a deadly threat…


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

DEATH CAP // Part Six!

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 Six!

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 Six!

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 in charge, Lawson tried to run for mayor, but she failed to secure the vote…


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

SURFER // Part Six!

Mega-City One, 2144 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 won a place to be in a movie recreating the famous Supersurf 7. But the film’s a scam, and the surfers have been hung out to dry by the producers..

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.

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 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!

Judge Dredd Megazine 440 is out now!

We trust you all had an enjoyable Xmas – though at the time of writing, another lockdown was in the offing, so who knows where we’ll be once this issue comes out – and the new Meg line-up suitably energised your Thrill-circuits.

It’s more of the same this month as we’ve got the stunning second parts of Death Cap, Surfer, Diamond Dogs III and Lawless, plus a new Dredd thriller starts in the shape of Praise Zort! by Rory McConville and Staz Johnson, picking up the storyline in the aftermath of last year’s Project Providence, where Mega-City One was caught red-handed using time-travel tech to steal the march on other nations. Chief Judge Logan is going to need all the support he can muster to avoid sanctions, and unfortunately that means seeking the approval of the eccentric Profundians…

Big news for this Meg is the start of the Hawk the Slayer sequel by the stellar creative team of Garth Ennis and Henry Flint, which revisits the characters and world from the cult eighties fantasy movie. This five-issue arc will be bagged with every Megazine, so make sure you stick around for some truly eye-popping sword n’ sorcery action, citizens – you won’t be disappointed!

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 // How Do You Solve A Problem Like Francisco!

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! Now, the fallout continues from Project Providence and Francisco’s kidnapping…

ANGELIC // Restitution// Part Three!

The Texas City Radlands, 2077. He emerged out of the desolate wastelands without a name or able to remember much of his past.

OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine 435

More thrills abound in Megazine 435, with new Dredd, Devlin Waugh and Diamond Dogs and The Returners and Angelic!

MEG 435 out now

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!
