Rebellion reveals full 2000AD graphic novel schedule for 2021

Rebellion 2021 2000AD Graphic Novels

Despite the disruption of last year, Rebellion continued to publish 2000AD every week, and now the team are getting back on an even keel, releasing details of their complete graphic novel schedule for 2021.

The list of graphic novels for this year – some previously announced – offers a great mix of all-ages, new series, old classics, digital-only, and on-going titles, promising a Thrill-filled 2021. Alongside the Treasury of British Comics titles, which includes Steel,Claw, and more, it’s an impressive line-up.

The line-up includes special limited hardcover editions only available from the 2000AD webshop as well as a new series of digital-only releases, available from the 2000AD webshop and app, that bring long out-of-print series out of the archives and on to digital devices.

The all-ages revolution at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic continues with two collections of 2000AD Regened (January and July), the regular all-ages specials that bring new and classic characters to whole new generations of readers, that have been a huge hit over the past two years.

Full Tilt Boogie (May) by Alex De Campi (Madi) and Eduardo Ocaña (Messiah Complex) is one of this year’s tentpole releases – a planet-conquering, prince rescuing, and ramen eating new space opera, described by The Hollywood Reporter as “Saga meets The Last Airbender”. Young Tee is a wannabe bounty hunter who, along with her grandmother and cat, takes odd-jobs while flying across the galaxy in her ship the Full Tilt Boogie, constantly on the lookout for the bigger, better payday!

The ‘folk horror’ revival comes to 2000AD with the collection of Thistlebone (April) by TC Eglington (Judge Dredd) and Simon Davis (Sinister Dexter), a chilling story about a secluded rural village that holds a dark secret…

2000AD - Stainless Steel Rat Wraparound Cover by Carlos Ezquerra
2000AD – Stainless Steel Rat Wraparound Cover by Carlos Ezquerra. The full series is being published again in a new collection

As previously reported, finally back into print and presented in a brand new edition with colour pages lovingly restored, the 2000AD adaptation by writer Kelvin Gosnell of SF writer Harry Harrison’s The Stainless Steel Rat (August) features explosive art from Judge Dredd co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. “Slippery” Jim diGriz is one of the most memorable characters in SF – a con man and a thief but also a member of an elite law-enforcement agency known as the Special Corps!

The autumn’s biggest release is the collection of Sláine: Dragontamer (September) by Pat Mills (Marshal Law), featuring the breathtaking fully-painted art of Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer) that evokes the legacy of the groundbreaking work of Simon Bisley on Sláine: The Horned God while also breathing new life into one of 2000AD’s signature characters.

And fans of future lawman Judge Dredd will not be disappointed, with three new volumes in the best-selling Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files (February, July, December) series, as well as collections of new stories – including John Wagner (A History of Violence), Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd) and Dan Cornwell’s (Rok of the Reds) political potboiler Judge Dredd: Guatemala (June) and Rob Williams (Suicide Squad), Henry Flint (Combo) and Colin MacNeil’s stand-alone apocalyptic epic Judge Dredd: End of Days (March).

There’s also a collection of the fascinating future noir ‘elseworlds’ series Megatropolis (October), written by Kenneth Niemand (Judge Dredd) and with gorgeous artwork by Dave Taylor (Batman & Superman: World’s Finest), and Judge Dredd: Dreadnoughts (November) by Michael Carroll (Jennifer Blood) and John Higgins (Watchmen), a hard-hitting and all-too-prescient series which charts the rise of the Judges in a world of political and social chaos.

Ben Smith, Rebellion’s head of film, TV and publishing, said: “The second golden age of 2000AD goes from strength to strength with brand new thrills like Thistlebone and Full Tilt Boogie jostling shoulders with sparkling new editions of stone cold classics such as Essential Judge Dredd: The Apocalypse War.

“We’ve increased our graphic novel releases by a third with an all-new digital line, not to mention looking to the future and a new generation of readers with the paperback editions of 2000AD‘s all-ages Regened series.

“We have never been as focused on bringing as much thrill power to every reader as we are now.”

2000AD’s graphic novels are available from all good booksellers and through the 2000AD webshop, as well as digitally on Amazon Kindle and DRM-free through the 2000AD webshop and app
