JUDGE DREDD // WHO KILLED CAPTAIN COOKIES? // 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 zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now the benevolent do-gooder Captain Cookies has been murdered, and
super-intelligent ape Noam Chimpsky is investigating who was behind it…


Script: Alec Worley / Art: Ben Willsher / Letters: Jim Campbell

DURHAM RED // SERVED COLD // Part Eleven!

Late 22nd century. Of all the mutants that have operated as Search/Destroy agents, perhaps the most feared is vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive. Mistrusted by both the criminals she hunts and her fellow Strontium Dogs, Red has a formidable reputation that precedes her. Now, while imprisoned in the Hawks-Carpenter Holding Station, the father of one of her victims plans to get his revenge…


Script: Roger Langridge / Art & Story: Brendan McCarthy / Colours: Len O’Grady/McCarthy / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

THARG’S 3RILLERS // NAKKA OF THE S.T.A.R.S // Part Two!

Three episodes, one complete, self-contained story — a condensed hit of super-charged Thrill-power beamed to you directly from the Nerve Centre! The UK, sometime in the near future. Inspector Nakrosky is a veteran law-enforcement officer of the Space Taskforce Armed Response Squad, a grizzled hold-out from an age before robots, aliens and clones. Now, he’s investigating a murder at the Wisteria Tea Rooms…


Script: Mike Carroll / Art: Jake Lynch / Colours: Jim Boswell / Letters: Simon Bowland

PROTEUS VEX // THE SHADOW CHANCELLOR // Part Eleven!

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 was charged with finding Chancellor Rho 7 Baryon, and when the flesh-pilot that controls Vex entered Baryon’s body he absorbed some of his memories…


Script: T.C. Eglington / Art: Simon Davis / Letters: Simon Bowland

THISTLEBONE // POISONED ROOTS // Part Three!

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. Scarred by the experience, Seema refuses to return, even when skeletons have been found amongst tree roots…

2000 AD Prog 2222 is out now!

2000 AD Prog 2222 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Thistlebone and brand new Tharg’s 3Rillers!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2222 is OUT NOW!

Welcome to Prog 2222, in which you might say we have all our ducks in a row — there’s ape investigations in Judge Dredd: Who Killed Captain Cookies?, sinister intrigue in folk-chiller Thistlebone, sci-fi excitement in Proteus Vex: The Shadow Chancellor and bullet-sprayed bad-assery in Durham Red: Served Cold.

Yep, you can’t argue with that zarjaz line-up — but where, we can hear you Terrans imploring, is Sláine: Dragontamer? Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the Manco art-droid — smoke pouring from his outlet vents as he raced to reach the deadline — we have had to put the climax of the Celtic warrior’s adventures back by a few weeks to allow for the pages to be finished.

So in its place you’ll find the start of a scrotnig 3riller from Brendan McCarthy and Roger Langridge, a retro-future police procedural called Nakka of the S.T.A.R.S, introducing Inspector Nakrosky of the Space Taskforce Armed Response Squad. Expect murder, clones, killer robots and cream teas in the heart of this green and pleasant land!

Be here in seven, loyal Squaxx, for the explosive finales to both Vex and Red!

2000 AD Prog 2217 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Durham Red, Proteus Vex, Sláine and Hershey!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2217 is OUT NOW!

Welcome, Squaxx, to your latest salvo of circuit-shattering excitement, courtesy of our crack squad of creator droids, beavering away under the toughest of social-distancing restrictions.

Script and art-bots have been programmed to stay well out of each other’s way (always a good idea, even when there’s not a pandemic on), and Mek-Quake has been fitted with an extra-long electro-lash to ensure punishments can continue to be delivered safely and responsibly.

Tharg is, after all, an employer that cares for his minions — unless, of course, they fail me, in which case we are reliably informed he will CRUSH THEM! CRUSH THEM UNTIL THEIR DIODES SQUEAK!

If that still doesn’t satiate your hunger for sci-fi excitement, make sure you don’t miss this month’s Judge Dredd Megazine, which features a complete Dredd thriller from Ken Niemand and Patrick Goddard alongside the latest chapters of Megatropolis, Dreadnoughts, The Returners and Deliverance.

Anyway, all these precautions are undertaken so you humes can enjoy your weekly prog, and as ever we have another zarjaz issue for you, with scrotnig instalments of Hershey, Proteus Vex, Durham Red and Sláine joined by a rather saucy complete case for Judge Dredd from Ken Niemand and Dan Cornwell.
