2000 AD Prog 2227 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Thistlebone, Feral & Foe, Visions of Deadworld and Tharg’s 3rillers!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2227 is OUT NOW!

Welcome, Terrans, to another weekly blast of circuit-shattering zarjazness, courtesy of our crack team of creator-droids.

Ken Niemand and Tom Foster crank up the intrigue in the third instalment of Judge Dredd: A Penitent Man; there’s another eerie trip to the fall of Deadworld from Kek-W and Dave Kendall, this time focusing on a pivotal moment in Judge Ava Eastwood’s life; Seema’s investigation of the Thistlebone myth sees her grip on reality loosen in Poisoned Roots by T.C. Eglington and Simon Davis; Battle Sister Evangelista steps aboard the papal barge and immediately regrets it in part two of James Peaty and Mike Collins’ Chorus & the Ring; and Dan Abnett and Richard Elson have Bode, Wrath and Krodgun venture into Golgone the Necromancer’s lair with typically disastrous results in Feral & Foe.

That’s a scrotnig line-up guaranteed to set your sensors on fire!


There’s some grexnixes that think we take unnecessary overload risks with you Squaxx, but we believe you can handle such cosmic energy — and to prove it, next week is the ghafflebette final episode of Sláine saga Dragontamer. Don’t miss it, humes!

JUDGE DREDD // A PENITENT MAN // 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! Former Judge Kyle Asher has recently returned from Titan, having served a twenty-year sentence. But he’s facing a hostile reception…


Script: Dan Abnett / Art: Richard Elson / Letters: Jim Campbell

FERAL & FOE II // Part Four!

It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating the Malign Lord. With their leader dead, his minions are scattered, fleeing retribution from the Wretchfinders. Necromancer Bode and warrior Wrath are two such beings, and were offered a deal — hunt and kill their own kind or be declared FERAL & FOE. Now, they’ve inadvertently swapped bodies…


Script: Kek-W / Art: Dave Kendall / Letters: Simon Bowland

VISIONS OF DEADWORLD // Leigh!

The planet that eventually became known as DEADWORLD was once a regular civilisation existing in a dimension parallel to our own. But the end of days is coming, and creatures known as the Dark Judges are spreading their contagion, exterminating all life, which they see as a crime. Zombie ‘greys’ are doing their bidding, having consumed the Dead Fluids, and other monstrosities stalk the streets, preying on survivors…


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

THISTLEBONE // POISONED ROOTS // Part Seven!

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. In the process of researching for a book on the Thistlebone legend, Seema believes much of it centres around one man — Malcolm Kinniburgh…


Script: James Peaty / Art: Mike Collins / Colours: Dylan Teague / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

THARG’S 3RILLERS // CHORUS & THE RING // 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! It’s the fifty-seventh century, and with Earth a distant memory its people have since spread across the stars. One such group is The Divine Chorus of Freedom, a religious movement based on a ring of asteroids. Now, Battle Sister Evangelista is investigating the fate of the War-Pontiff…

is what it seems in these glimpses of a terrifying realm beyond our own. When Aaron Doplo is attacked by a mystery assailant, he’s only the first victim. More soon follow…

2000 AD Prog 2224 is out now, with more new Judge Dredd, Thistlebone and Tharg’s 3rillers, plus all new Feral & Foe!

BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS – Prog 2224 is OUT NOW!

We trust your circuits are fully prepped and your diodes double-shielded, Terrans, as we launch into another zarjaz issue of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic.

While we have the final episodes of both Who Killed Captain Cookies? and Nakka of the S.T.A.R.S — be here in seven for the start of Judge Dredd: A Penitent Man by Ken Niemand and Tom Foster, and the return of Kek-W and Dave Kendall’s Visions of
Deadworld
— this prog features the double-length opening chapter of the second series of Feral & Foe from the Abnett and Elson droids.

The previous arc ended with Wrath, Bode and Krodgun making a last stand against the forces of Haggart Morn, and Bode
released his malchemical energy, causing a huge explosion. They’ve been missing assumed dead since… find out what happened inside!

Fantasy has the occasional place in these pages, but it’s rarely done straight — Sláine, of course, takes its nod from Celtic myths, and Kingmaker mixes its sword n’ sorcery with SF.

Feral & Foe’s irreverent, humorous approach to the genre’s tropes is typical of how my creator-meks like to come at something
from a fresh angle — it’s the 2000 AD way!

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 Covers Uncovered: 40th Anniversary Special 1 – Carlos Ezquerra

Rejoice Earthlets as the 40 Year Special is finally ready to be beamed to your Optical Receptors! The mighty one has pulled out all the stops to bring a Prog jam-packed with some of the very greatest Thrills from the very best creators!

There are few artdroids that could do justice to such a monumental Prog, however it is all in a day’s work for the daddy of both Judge Dredd and Johnny Alpha, the mighty Carlos Ezquerra!

Below, we see Carlos’ sketch for the cover, featuring three of the most iconic, not to mention grumpy, faces in British comics.

The 2000AD ABBA tribute album gets a cover.

After studying his handome features, the Mighty One approves the rough and instructs the Ezquerra Droid to “Get on with it!” 

Note, the Ezquerra jaggies in full effect here. Each one is lovingly raised on a farm in Andorra before being carefully placed on Carlos’ artwork…

Tharg about to play with his ThreeA figures

Then the Ezquerra droid, a pioneer of computer coloured comic artwork, digitally colours the piece. It is a little known fact that every time Carlos does a cover, the computer he uses has to be replaced as it explodes with pure Thrillpower.

The mean, the green and the machine

Not content with providing the cover of the 40th special, Tharg also created an exclusive print for Vice Press, to be sold at the excellent 40th Anniversary Celebration in London. The print featured Dredd from 1977 having a chin off against Dredd from 2017! How fashion’s change, eh? Here’s the rough…

“A word of advice, look out for a juve called Maybe…”

Set your Thrillbuffers at maximum for those amazing inks – swoon!

“Hey Joe, you remeber the codpiece years?” “No.”

Lastly a bit of tone and text for the final print, absolutely Lawsome!

Who the hell’s gonna mess with them?

Huge thanks to Carlos for sending the images and for attending the 40th Anniversary bash. He sketched ALL day, chatted to fans and was as kind and gracious as ever.

Here’s to another 40 years of Carlos characters and covers!
