British Comic Shop Comic Releases (17th September 2014) – Cry freeeeeeedom!!

2000AD Prog 1899

 

Here’s a list of comics – both US and UK releases – on sale in specialist UK comic shops from tomorrow, Wednesday 17th September 2014, courtesy of First Age Comics, Lancaster. We’ve picked out the titles published by British publishers in bold below, or titles with a British connection we’re aware of.

Releases include 2000AD Issue 1899 (also on sale in newsagents) the last issue before the much-hyped Issue 1900 Rebellion hopes will provide a ‘jump on point’ for new readers. This week, how can you be more hardcore than Judge Dredd? The alien Lawlords are giving it a good try, but Dredd already has them on their knees! Also in this issue of the legendary weekly anthology: Aquila, Brass Sun, Black Shuck, and a brand new Future Shock! 2000AD is also available worldwide day-and-date DRM-free digital through the comic’s webshop or the iPad app.

 

Armor Hunters: Bloodshot #3

 

Valiant Entertainment‘s Armor Hunters: Bloodshot mini-series continues this week, with art from Trevor Hairsine. In Issue Three, M.E.R.O. headquarters has been evacuated, and Bloodshot is the only thing left standing between the alien prisoner called Malgam and the outside world. Battle-worn and brutalized, can Bloodshot survive one final confrontation with an extraterrestrial foe augmented by the unholy power of the X-O Manowar armour? If you thought the first two chapters were hardcore, stay out of the splash zone because the Armor Hunters just picked the wrong soldier to fuss with!

Issue Four of the main Armor Hunters book, drawn by Doug Braithwaite, who we interviewed recently about his new exhibition in Kendal, is out next week.

Also out this week is Dark Horse Presents 2014 #2, featuring a terrific cover by Steve Parkhouse to promote the new “Resident Alien” story within, written by Peter Hogan. The 48-page anthology also features Brendan McCarthy’s “Dream Gang”, Chris Roberson and Paul Lee reveal an untold tale from the movie Aliens featuring the character Hicks, Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey deliver a new “Action Philosophers!” that pulls the entire series together in “Action Philosophy!”, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Andy Kuhn’s are back with “Wrestling with Demons”, and there’s a slice of Damon Gentry and Aaron Conley’s “Sabertooth Swordsman” to savour, too.

 

Judge Dredd Megazine Issue 352

 

As Scotland goes to the polls to decide on its fate, the Judge Dredd Megazine Issue 352 (also on sale in newsagents) brings up a brand new collection of tales from the Scotland of the future – Cal-Hab!

“Cal-hab is a futuristic version of Scotland as played out in the Judge Dredd universe,” writer Jim Alexander reminds us. “I pitched the main character Judge Ed Macbrayne as a cross between Judge Dredd and Billy Connolly, which tells you everything you need to know about the story!”

Jim tells us that with the Scottish referendum taking place this week the strip, drawn by John Ridgway, has enjoyed some media coverage, most notably in the Metro, which carried a couple of quotes from Jim himself.

“It is this idea that a future Scotland would become this radiated wasteland populated by madmen,” Jim told the paper. “It’s an environment where the idea of Scots having any way of self-determination seemed dead in the water.”

This special Scottish bundle of tales tops a bumper issue with more from John Wagner and Henry Flint on “Judge Dredd: Dead Zone”, Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade on “Lawless”, and Arthur Wyatt and Paul Davidson’s follow-up to the sell-out comic book sequel to the DREDD movie. Plus “The Man From The Ministry” by Gordon Rennie and Kev Hopgood continues and the issue includes interviews with John Layman and Eddie Robson, plus a special bonus Graphic Novel featuring the late Steve Moore’s boisterous Valkyries.

As with 2000AD, Judge Dredd Megazine will be available worldwide day-and-date DRM-free digital on Wednesday through the 2000AD webshop or the iPad app.

Don’t forget that along with a host of home-grown comics (albeit some described as such but decidedly limited in terms of comic strip content) The Beano is on sale in all good newsagents, too, as are the latest issues of Commando, Doctor Who Adventures and Doctor Who Magazine – and Panini Comics UK’s Marvel superhero titles, with Avengers Universe #4Incredible Hulks #6Wolverine and Deadpool #3, Astonishing Spider-Man Volume 4 #25 and Ultimate Spider-Man #278 al on sale now.
