British Comic Shop Releases (1st April 2015) – Jump On Board 2000AD and The Ninth Doctor!

2000AD Prog 1924

 

Here’s our list of both British and US comics on sale this week in comic shops (Wednesday 1st April 2015), and it’s a big week for 2000AD fans – and not just because Tharg has persuaded Brian Bolland to draw the cover of this week’s new Prog. This week’s issue is a perfect jumping-on point for all new, lapsed or curious readers, kicking off with the new Judge Dredd adventure, “Enceladus: New Life”, a sequel to the recent events on Titan, the penal colony for ex-Judges, as the clean-up begins.

Also in the issue are new series for old favourites, “Slaine: Brutania Chronicles [Book II]: Primordial” and “Strontium Dog: The Stix Fix”, in which familiar foes are on the trail of Johnny Alpha.

Recent favourites also return, including the excellent “Grey Area” from Dan Abnett (I’m sure he has cloned himself, judging by hom many books by him are out this week) and Mark Harrison, who first worked together way back when at Marvel UK, on the unpublished mini series Loose Cannons. (Oh, please, Marvel – commission the team to finish it!). “Grey Area” is set in a huge Global Exo Segregation Zone in Arizona, USA that acts as a quarantine and processing centre, for all new extra-terrestrial visitors.

Do not fear though, Earthlets, if you’re new to 2000AD, the ever-thoughtful, benevolent alien editor & founder, Tharg the Mighty, has provided full-page introductions to each series, giving detailed back-stories and character breakdowns, on each Thrill-packed adventure – it’s not called the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic™ for nothing!

 

Doctor Who - Ninth Doctor Mini Series #1 - Zhang

 

Over at Titan Comics, they’re understandably excited about the launch of their Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor mini series (check out our sneak peek here). The story is off to a good start, written by Cavan Scott with some deft characterisation of the much-troubled Time Lord and companions and absolutely gorgeous art from Blair Shedd. There’s a lot of trails laid in the opening issue and little explained, but there’s no shortage of action or danger for the TARDIS team, and the series is off to a great start.

Don’t forget that despite many British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour, there are still comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including The Beano, Commando, Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who MagazineDoctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who Comic (collecting their strips from the US format titles) Mega, TOXIC and many others.

The Hachette Judge Dredd Collection is also on sale now, but you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying it as Part Works are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is on sale in all Waitrose supermarkets as well as available on subscription and through its dedicated iPad app.

2000AD Prog 1924

Featuring

JUDGE DREDD: ENCELADUS: NEW LIFE by Rob Williams and Henry Flint

Mega-City One, 2137 AD. Home to 50 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, where crime is rampant, poverty and homelessness rife, unemployment endemic and boredom universal. Tensions run a constant knife-edge and only the Judges— empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

The opening page of “Grey Area” by Dan Abnett and Mark Harrison

 

GREY AREA: ANOTHER DAY ON THE JOB by Dan Abnett and Mark Harrison

North America, 2045. The Global Exo Segregation Zone — aka the GREY AREA — is a huge sector in Arizona given over to housing the large number of extra-terrestrial immigrants that arrive on Earth. A massive shanty town that acts as a holding area, it’s policed by Exo Transfer Control squads, heavily armoured cops that patrol and keep the peace amongst the aliens. But right now, Bulliet and co are somewhere else entirely…

SLÁINE: PRIMORDIAL by Pat Mills and Simon Davis

Albion, in a time of myth and legend. Celtic barbarian warrior SLÁINE united the tribes of the Earth Goddess Danu and became the first High King of Ireland. After ruling for seven years, he travelled through time to fight for the Goddess in other eras before returning to save his people from the Fomorian sea devils. He then became a wanderer, serving the Goddess where she directs him, and now he’s battling the Drune Lords…

ORLOK, AGENT OF EAST-MEG ONE: THE RASPUTIN CAPER by Arthur Wyatt and Jake Lynch

East-Meg One, 2100 AD. Four years before he will set in motion the events of Block Mania, and become a notorious enemy of Mega-City One’s Justice Department, ORLOK is a ruthless agent and assassin of the East-Meg Diktatorat. Skilled in stealth, sabotage
and subterfuge, he’s a lethal weapon sent on the most dangerous missions — but can he be truly trusted? Or is he working to his own agenda…?

STRONTIUM DOG: THE STIX FIX by John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra

Late 22nd century. After the Atomic Wars, many survivors were warped by the Strontium 90 fallout. These ‘mutants’ became a victimised underclass, forced into ghettos, and the only job open to them was bounty hunting. One such Search/Destroy agent, or STRONTIUM DOG, is Johnny Alpha, who was thought killed. Now, he’s lead an open revolt against the norms after the government planned to sterilise all mutants…

PS Blackcross #1 - Second Printing

 

Project SuperPowers: Blackcross #1 – Second Printing
Writer: Warren Ellis Artist: Colton Worley Cover Artist: Darick Robertson

All small towns have secrets. All small towns have ghosts. Blackcross, in the Pacific North West of America, has more secrets than most. And it is being haunted by something impossible. BLACKCROSS, a supernatural extension of the PROJECT SUPERPOWERS mythos, is a ghost story about something reaching out from the other side of the night, through the forest and mist of this remote town, to grasp at the hearts of a handful of people who may not find out that they’re the targets of a strange killer until it’s much, much too late.

 

Project SuperPowers: Blackcross #2

 

Project SuperPowers: Blackcross #2
Writer: Warren Ellis Artist: Colton Worley Cover Artist: Tula Lotay

In the quiet Pacific Northwestern town of Blackcross, something terrible is happening. A man has burned himself to death by the lake, but there’s no body. A man under witness protection is under threat. A serial killer is murdering his way towards the town limits. And supernatural figures stare out through mirrors and windows, haunting their own doppelgangers. The alternative history of Blackcross is reaching out through the mist to lay its claws on the real world.

 

War Stories #7

 

War Stories #7 (Variant Covers, Mature Readers)
Writer: Garth Ennis Artist/Cover Artist: Tomas Aria

“When I was a little girl, my mother told me tales of knights in shining armour, who would save damsels like me from dragons and other monsters…” February 1945: as the Soviet war machine crashes into eastern Germany on a tidal wave of carnage and revenge, a mother and her children join the flood of refugees struggling to stay ahead of the invaders. But the realities of battle are dreadful to behold, and what the little family find waiting for them is deadlier than any mythical dragon. Worse still, the strange figures who appear from the deep woods are far from being knights in shining armour- and in these dark times, the price of salvation may just be too much to bear. A dark tale of conflict and its consequences, by Garth Ennis and Tomas Aira: part one of The Last German Winter.
Available with Regular &Wraparound Covers by Tomas Aria, and Good Girl Nose Art & Battle Damage Retailer Incentive Covers by Matt Martin.

Age Of Selfishness

Age Of Selfishness Hard Cover
Writer:/Artist Darryl Cunningham Intriduced by Michael Goodwin

The US edition of Darryl Cunningham’s terrific Supercrash. Tracing the emergence of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of objectivism in the 1940s to her present-day influence, Darryl Cunningham uses Rand’s biography to illuminate the policies that led to the 2008-9 economic crash in the U.S. and in Europe, and how her philosophy continues to affect today’s politics and policies. Cunningham shows how right-wing conservatives, libertarians, and the Tea Party have co-opted Rand’s teachings, and its inherent contradictions, to promote personal gain and profit at the expense of the middle class. Cunningham ultimately delivers a devastating critique of austerity-driven economics.

Ufology #1

 

Ufology #1 – BOOM! STUDIOS
Writer: James Tynion IV, Noah J Yuenkel Artist: Matt Fox Cover Artist: Matt Fox, Alison Sampson

What’s to Love: James Tynion IV has already blown us away with his original series The Woods and Memetic, and now he’s teaming up with Thrillbent cowriter Noah J. Yuenkel (The House in the Wall) and artist Matt Fox (Long Walk to Valhalla) to bring us a story about aliens in the Midwest. It’s reminiscent of films like E.T. and Super 8, and TV shows like Twin Peaks and The X-Files.

What It Is: Becky Finch never wanted to be special. She just wanted to be a normal high school student in the small, Midwestern town of Mukawgee. Malcolm Chamber wanted something more. A destiny. An answer from the stars. When Becky is marked by an alien’s touch, she’ll stumble into a mystery she never wanted. A mystery that almost ripped apart their parents’ lives 12 years ago. She’ll need the help of her eccentric young classmate, Malcolm, as she finds the power within herself to uncover the truth.
