Buoyed by strong sales, Rebellion has announced that their all-ages 2000AD Regened will be back in 2021 – with four more mind-bending issues.
The Oxford-based publisher has revealed its all-ages issues continue to be among the best-selling issues of 2000AD of the year – and Rebellion is looking to build on their success with another quartet of bumper all-ages issues.
Drawing on four decades of genre-defining characters while encouraging new readers to pick up the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, 2000AD Regened has something for everyone.
These 48-page issues, retailing at £4.99 for print and £3.99 for digital, feature new takes on some of 2000AD’s biggest characters, as well as brand new series.
2021 will see the return of hit new series “Pandora Perfect” by Roger Langridge (The Muppet Show) and Brett Parson (Tank Girl), and the Judge Dredd-world series “Department K” by Rory McConville (Judge Dredd) and PJ Holden (Judge Dredd).
Plus there’ll be even more new stories making their debut, such as “Action Pact” by Michael Carroll (Judge Dredd) and Luke Horsman (Cadet Dredd), and “Lowborn High” by David Barnett (Gideon Smith series) and Philip Bond (Kill Your Boyfriend, Tank Girl).
The first Regened issue of 2020 will be 2000 AD Prog 2220 – a bumper special issue with a roster of complete stories, on sale from newsagents, comic book stores, and online on 24th February 2021.
The subsequent Regened issues will be 2000AD Prog 2233 on 26th May, 2000AD Prog 2246 on 25th August, and 2000AD Prog 2256 on 3rd November.
2000AD editor Matt Smith said: “It’s been fantastic to see that the amazing response to 2000AD Regened has continued in 2020 as we increased it to four issues a year. Both sales and reader feedback have shown us there’s a real appetite for Regened and that’s been reflected in the enthusiasm for new series that have debuted in Regened, such as ‘Full Tilt Boogie’ by Alex de Campi and Eduardo Ocaña – which spun off into its own series – and ‘Pandora Perfect’ and ‘Department K’.
“There’s lots more to come from Regened in 2021 – we can’t wait to explore strange new worlds with readers of all ages!”
All the Regened issues will be included in new and existing subscriptions from 2000AD, and will be available from all good comic book stores and newsagents in the UK and Ireland.
Outside the UK and Ireland, it is available to order through comic book stores via Diamond Distribution. It is also available digitally from the 2000AD.com webshop and the 2000AD apps for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices.

- Prog 2220 – 24th February
- Prog 2233 – 26th May
- Prog 2246 – 25th August
