2000AD anniversary celebrations continue with latest Prog

2000AD Prog 2321, with a cover featuring Judge Dredd by Jock, is on sale in all good comic shops and newsagents on Wednesday. Here’s a sneak peek…

Inside, Old Stoney Face, as ever, takes top billing, in a brand-new case, courtesy of Ken Niemand and former Sláine artist Leonardo Manco, as
“Succession” sees corporate bloodletting reach typically Mega-City maniacal levels. (It’s forty-six years, of course, since Dredd made his ghafflebette debut in Prog 2 and go on to become the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’s most iconic character).

In this issue:

Judge Dredd: Succession by Ken Neimand (Writer) Leonardo Manco (Artist) Chris Blythe (Colourist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer)

Mega-City One, 2145 AD. Home to over 200 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, where tensions run a constant knife-edge. Unemployment is rife, boredom is universal, and violent crime is rampant. Only future cops the Judges – empowered to dispense instant justice – can stop total
anarchy. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law!

The Out: Book Three by Dan Abnett (Writer) Mark Harrison (Artist) Simon Bowland (Letterer)

She left Earth ten years ago and has been seeking other ex-pat humans – but now, having learned what the Zoto have done to her, escapes with old pal Cheerio…

The Order: Heart of Darkness by Kek-W (Writer) John Burns (Artist) Jim Campbell (Letterer)

Throughout history, mankind has been under threat of extermination by the Wurms, creatures that break into our reality.

Joe Pineapples: Tin Man by Pat Mills (Writer) Simon Bisley (Artist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer) | Story by Pat Mills and Simon Bisley

Now he and sewer-droid Ro-Jaws are at the other end of the universe – Joe n’ Ro, lost in space, out of gas, out of love n’ outta luck!

Proteus Vex; Crawlspace by Mike Carroll (Writer) Jake Lynch (Artist) Jim Boswell (Colourist) Simon Bowland (Letterer)

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.
