Rebellion, the UK’s leading comic and graphic novel publisher, is looking for a Junior Graphic Novel Editor to join its busy publishing department. The full job specification follows below.
The recruitment drive comes in the same week as 2000AD issues its second Regened Prog of 2020 (Prog 2183), on sale now, featuring “Cadet Dredd”, “Anderson, Psi-Division”, “Finder & Keeper”, “Future Shocks”, and “Strontium Dog”.
Presented by Tharg’s young nephew, Joko-Jargo, the issue kicks off with another “Cadet Dredd” tale, this time from Matt Smith and Nicolo Assirelli, as Joe undergoes the first of his Routine Combat Assessments that will determine his effectiveness on the dangerous streets of Mega-City One.
Fellow Judge Cassandra Anderson also returns, courtesy of Cavan Scott and Paul Davidson, investigating suspicious goings-on amongst some very well-behaved schoolchildren.
Elsewhere, ghost-hunters Eliot and Meera are back in “Finder & Keeper” by John Reppion and David Tinto, tackling a haunted block of flats, and the comic also heads back to the early days of Johnny Alpha in “Strontium Dog: Acceptable Losses” by Mike Carroll and Nick Brokenshire, revealing a mission he undertook when he first joined the Mutant Army. Plus there’s a one-off tale of a miscreant monarch in a “Future Shock” from Laura Bailey and Andrea Mutti.
2000AD Prog 2183 is out now from all good newsagents and comic book stores, plus digitally from our webshop and apps. Don’t forget that if you buy an issue of 2000 AD in the first week of its release then postage in the UK is free. Order now via 2000ad.com
