OUT NOW – Flesh: Midnight Cowboys!

The 23rd century, mankind is surviving on synthetic food, but the Trans-Time corporation has a solution: sending its employees back in time to the age of the dinosaurs and butcher them for their meat… but these humungous beasts aren’t afraid to bite back!

This futuristic Western story by Pat Mills and James McKay, and with cover art by Mark Harrison, is now available in an exclusive digital-only graphic novel for the first time!



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 fight back!

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.
