The ultimate collection of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic gets its launch this week when subscriptions launch for 2000AD: The Ultimate Collection – bringing you the best stories from forty years of Britain’s biggest comic.
Regular downthetubes readers will recall our report on the limited release “road test” for this new part work from Hachette Partworks back in March.
Hachette already publish the Judge Dredd Mega Collection but 2000AD: The Ultimate Collection will offer collections of the other strips from the weekly comic – from Judge Dredd to Sláine the Barbarian, from Rogue Trooper to Strontium Dog and a galaxy of Thrills in between.
Subscriptions launch at www.2000adcollection.com on 7th August 2017, with Issue One on sale from 23rd August in all good newsagents, so whether you’re a new Squaxx Dek Thargo or a venerable Deca Thargo make sure you snap up this ghafflebette collection!
