The sword-swinging Black Beth is back by popular demand in a stunning one-shot special!

Written by Alec Worley (Star Wars) and with stunning art from DaNi (Coffin Bound), Black Beth and The Devils of Al-Kadesh stars the warrior-woman first developed in the early 1970s by an unknown writer and Spanish artist Blas Gallego. After appearing only once, ten years later, Beth sliced her way into our reality in the Scream! & Misty Halloween Special in 2018. Now she’s back with her own special issue!

Beth and her blind aide, Quido, have traveled to the wicked city of Shadrivar, in search of the evil witch Anis-Amuun. Many think that she is long dead, but a mage called Estevan believes otherwise. He charges Beth with a quest to destroy the witch, initiating a sea-spanning quest which pits Beth’s curved blade against all manner of mystical creatures – and possibly Anis-Amuun herself!

Out now in North America, Black Beth and The Devils of Al-Kadesh is a breathtaking one-shot in the vein of Sergio Toppi and guaranteed to delight and thrill! Includes back-up stories by Alec Worley, Andrea Bulgarelli, Doug Graves and Vincenzo Riccardi, plus pin-ups by David Roach and Andreas Butzbach.

Rebellion announces comic book specials for 2021!

From mighty warriors fighting through way across distant lands to the high-danger streets of the future megalopolis and bonkers Halloween monster fun – there’s something for everyone with the Rebellion comic book specials this year!

Rebellion is pleased to announce its roster of comic books specials for 2021, which will be available from all good newsagents and comic book stores, as well as from the 2000 AD and Treasury of British Comics webshops.

After her appearance in the Scream! & Misty Special, by popular demand the sword-swinging Black Beth is back in Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh! Written by Alec Worley (Durham Red) and drawn by DaNi (Coffin Bound), Beth is a warrior-woman born in anger and forged in rage. She and her blind aide Quido have travelled to the wicked city of Shadrivar, in search of the evil witch Anis-Amuun.

Many think that she is long dead, but a mage called Estevan believes otherwise. He charges Beth with a quest to destroy the witch, initiating a sea-spanning quest which pits Beth’s curved blade against all manner of mystical creatures…and possibly Anis-Amuun herself!

The 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special is back for a fantastic collection of original Dredd-world stories, all connected to the same over-arching narrative and plotted by writers Mike Carroll (Judge Dredd) and Maura McHugh (Anderson, Psi Division). Dive into the dystopian world of Judge Dredd as he brings law to the lawless on the mean streets of Mega-City One!

And the popular 1970s comic book Monster Fun is back for Halloween 2021! Join the Treasury of British Comics’ creepiest and coolest goblins, ghouls and vamps for brand new, HELL-arious comic strips in the The Monster Fun Halloween Spooktacular! Everyone’s favourite monsters – including Frankie Stein, Kid Kong, Draculass, Teddy Scare, and the Hire A Horror crew – have returned, courtesy of creators including Tom Paterson, Chris Garbutt, Matt Baxter, Juni Ba and Lew Stringer! If that wasn’t enough, a brand new Leopard from Lime Street tale sees Selbridge’s premier superhero face off against a fantastic new foe!

Specials editor Keith Richadson said: “We’ve got an eclectic mix of specials this year from a whole special dedicated to swords-and-sorcery character Black Beth and a revival of Monster Fun, one of those fantastic all-ages titles from the 1970s.

“Despite the many obstacles put in our way last year, Rebellion’s 2020 roster of specials were a great success. While the world strives to resolve the terrible crisis that we still find ourselves in, we’ve scaled back the number of specials this year – but we’re keeping the quality high thanks to our roster of brilliant creators.”

In Boarding School, Tabatha and her little brother Richard are the only pupils in a mysterious old building. The only other people they have ever seen are the Governesses – four teachers who fawn over the younger sibling but treat Tabatha very badly. Does it have something to do with Richard’s special power? When Tabatha finds a new friend in the outside world, her old life quickly starts to unravel.

An old favourite from the pages of the Sally returns as fourteen-year-old Claire finds an old cat costume in her mother’s wardrobe and wears it to a social media star’s party, unware that she has just donned the magical mantle of the super-sleek crime fighter, Cat-Girl!

And we get an inside scoop on what it was like to write for girl’s comics in their heyday, as Alison Fitt (known then as Alison Christie) talks about her experiences working for Jinty and Tammy on such strips as ‘Heart of Stone’, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘Ping Pong Paula’.
