With 37 years of weekly issues, a whole galaxy of characters, and a constantly evolving line-up of new stories, you may wonder when the best point to start reading 2000AD is. The answer? Next week!
Out on 24th September, 2000 AD Prog 1900 has three brand new strips, making it the perfect issue for new readers looking reading 2000 AD! For those not in the know, 2000AD is a weekly science-fiction anthology comic featuring a certain Judge Dredd.
Inside issue 1900 will be:
Judge Dredd: Block Judge – Dredd co-creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra return as Dredd takes on the problems of a single city block – but is Mega-City One’s toughest lawman up to the challenge of ‘community policing’?
Kingdom: Aux Drift – by Dan Abnett and Richard Elson. In the far future, mankind has been all but destroyed and genetically-modified dogs fight giant insects in a post apocalyptic Earth. Abnett and Elson team up again to bring you the ballad of Gene the Hackman!
Stickleback: The Thru’Penny Opera – by Ian Edginton and D’Israeli. In London at the end of the 19th Century, Stickleback is the master criminal who pulls the strings amidst the denizens of the capital’s underworld, and leads a gang of freaks, oddballs and semi-supernatural entities that have got the city under their thumb. But what is his darkest secret? And can he keep it hidden ’til the very end?
I’ve been dipping in and out 2000AD over the years and have really enjoyed the mix of storytelling that evolves week after week. Now’s the best time to jump on board and enjoy a classic British comic!
