With a smashing cove from Chris Weston, the final regular issue of 2000AD – Prog 2110 – for 2018 is on sale now, and several of the current stories reach a momentous conclusion.
It all kicks off, however, with Rory McConville and PJ Holden providing some light relief in their “Judge Dredd” story, welcome relief after the grief Mega City-One’s top lawman has faced over the past few issues, as a medical trial goes wrong for one poor sap.
We’re also treated to the finale of Sinister Dexter’s undersea adventure, as they face down the mighty Wharfinger. Steve Yeowell delivers some great art for Dan Abnett‘s story, who’s also the author of “Brink” and Kingdom” for the issue.
Next week, it’s time for the bumper Christmas issue Prog 2111 and it’s looking fantastic. Meanwhile, don’t forget Judge Dredd Megazine 402 is still on sale!
Plus, if you’re looking for a fun stocking filler for the comic lovers in your life, then look no further than Ken Reid’s Creepy Creations, available now – or, for the more serious, adventure fan, the Sniper Elite: Resistance collection, the first of, hopefully, a new line in Battle-inspired titles!
