The hit game of the ‘80s – Block Mania – is back with a brand new edition from Rebellion Unplugged!

Rebellion is delighted to announce a limited edition re-issue of the classic board game based on the world of Judge Dredd – as well as the Mega-Mania expansion set, featuring the Happy Hour expansion!

Block Mania is the classic two-player game of manic destruction in Mega-City. Each player controls the citizens of an entire Mega-City block, as they attempt to destroy the block next door – or at least do it a lot of damage before the Judges arrive!

ORDER BLOCK MANIA >>

ORDER MEGA MANIA EXPANSION >>

It brings the classic work of Space Hulk designer Richard Halliwell back to print for the first time in decades.

Relive the chaos of hives soaring in bat-suits; hungry alien Kleggs commandeering Sky-Rail cars; and City-Def forces infiltrating the neighbouring block to blow it to smithereens, before the Judges unleash the riot foam to shut you down!

Each box contains:

  • Two different, full-colour game boards – each depicting an entire Mega-City block.
  • 180 counters representing the Citizens, weapons and equipment of the blocks, as well as damage, collapse and fire markers.
  • A deck of 54 full-colour, double-sided playing cards, used to play numerous dirty tricks during the game. When the last card is played the quick fire endgame begins as the Judges arrive.
  • A detailed, comprehensive rulebook with extensive diagrams, examples of play and players’ notes giving tips on strategy and tactics.
  • A handy Blockers’ Manual telling players all about how to use the multitude of citizens, weapons, hardware and instruments of total destruction in the game.
  • And, of course, two six-sided dice! 

Mega-Mania expands Block Mania with additional counters and two new boards, allowing up to four players to join in the chaos at once.

And for the first time the Happy Hour expansion is also included, adding Robo-Dogs, Sucker Guns and Trip Mines to the fray!

Don’t miss this chance to grab a copy of this classic boardgame, so arm up and prepare to go crazy!

Original Charley’s War Art Limited Edition Screen Print

One of the greatest comics of all time and a moving tribute to the power of comic book art – the stunning replica screen print of a page from the groundbreaking Charley’s War is now available to order.

From the archives of the Treasury of British Comics, the world’s largest archive of English-language comics, Rebellion Unplugged is proud to present this limited edition screen print of art by the legendary artist Joe Colquhoun from Charley’s War episode #230.

This beautiful print is available on both paper and Bristol Board from the 2000 AD and Treasury of British Comics webshops.

ORDER PAPER PRINT >>

ORDER BRISTOL BOARD PRINT >>

This scale replica is taken from new high-resolution scans of Colquhoun’s breath-taking original art. Five layers of hand-pressed screen printing captures the creative process of the original page, through pencils, inks, hand lettering, and art fixes, to produce an artefact that is faithful both to its creator’s vision and to the lost art of making comic books.

This limited edition screen print is hand-numbered, and printed on archival quality acid-free Somerset satin 410gsm white paper, with a variant edition of 25 copies printed on artists’ Bristol Board to match the original. It reproduces the artwork in its original size of 400*470mm.

Originally printed in Battle Picture Weekly in August 1979 the page opens the strip’s dramatic portrayal of the blitz on London, and showcases Colquhoun’s incredible linework and storytelling.

Written by British comics legend Pat Mills and illustrated by Colquhoun, Charley’s War tells the story of underage British soldier called Charley Bourne, who enlists at the outbreak of World War One and goes on to experience the horror of the trenches and witness the brutal treatment ordinary soldiers received to serve the selfish interests of those in power.

Considered by many to be the greatest war comic of all time, and this new print is a testament to the extraordinary and under-appreciated talent of the artist who brought it to life.

“I am the law!” Celebrate Anthrax’s 40th anniversary with the ‘Among The Living’ graphic novel

Charlie Benante and Scott Ian Assemble An All-Star Line Up of Writers and Artists For Ambitious Anthology Paying Tribute to Their Landmark 1987 Album

Just ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, Z2 gives music fans something to celebrate with news of one of the publisher’s most ambitious projects yet! The Among the Living graphic novel pulls together a who’s who of names from around comics and music for a track by track storyline inspired by one of heavy metal’s most iconic albums! Today’s announcement brings news that the band’s cofounders Charlie Benante and Scott Ian have teamed with the leading publisher of music tie-in graphic novels to assemble an all-star cast of famous fans to bring the band’s breakthrough album to the printed page for the first time!

PRE-ORDER NOW >>

“Doing a comic book has always been a huge goal for me” say Anthrax co-founder, Charlie Benante. “I’ve tried for years, but something always comes up and sidetracks me. I was ecstatic when Josh Bernstein brought the idea to us to do a graphic novel based on our album Among the Living.  I felt that it was the perfect time and opportunity to fulfill that dream. I am a lifelong artist and have been drawing during the pandemic more than ever, so I had the idea to bring my own artwork to this project.  As a fan of the Judge Dredd series since the 80’s, it was an honor to create cover art based off of Dredd and Judge Death. The amount of talent that is going into this project is astounding, I scratch my head just thinking about it!”

An anthology narrated by longtime mascot “The Not Man” newly designed by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead); Among the Living unites Charlie Benante and Scott Ian with writers Brian Azarello, Grant Morrison, Jimmy Palmiotti, Brian Posehn, Rick Remender, Corey Taylor, Joseph Trohman, Gerard and Mikey Way, and Rob Zombie, with more to be announced. Artists include Roland Boschi, Maan House, Scott Koblish, Darick Robinson, and Erik Rodriguez, and more, with covers by Charlie Benante, JG Jones, and Eric Powell. Bandmembers Benante and Ian will collaborate on an original story inspired by the fan favorite anthem “I Am the Law,” featuring the legendary comic book antihero Judge Dredd, in partnership with 2000 AD. This will make official the decades long connection between the character and the band, rewarding comic book fans and metalheads alike!

This extensive project will be offered in multiple formats, with deluxe and super deluxe editions inclusive of special picture disc vinyl, an exclusive MadBalls™ toy, art prints, and even a gold record plaque! All editions are available to order directly from Z2’s website now, with Charlie Benante’s Judge Dredd variant exclusive to preorders of the standard edition!
