Something For The Weekend: New Comics On Sale (w/c 20th June 2016) – Judge Dredd, James Bond and More!

2000AD Prog 1986

Judge Dredd gets set to fight back in the long-running story that’s had plenty of surprises along the way in this week’s 2000AD (by Michael Carroll, Colin MacNeil, Len O’Grady, and Annie Parkhouse) – but just how big is the conspiracy set to take control of Mega City One? There are still shocks to come!

Over at Dynamite, James Bond #7 written by Warren Ellis is out this week – and SPECTRE is back in a new story. Meanwhile, at Titan Comics, if you missed the first sell out release of Penny Dreadful #1, be sure to look out for the second printing, out today, with an eye-catching cover by Krysty Wilson-Cairns… that should make up for the news that Showtimes’s Penny Dreadful show – which airs on Sky in the UK – has just bowed out at the end of its third season in the US after 27 episodes.

“John Logan deftly created a truly beautiful, brilliantly-written, epic drama series that has drawn a passionate fan base to our network,” said Showtime president David Nevins. “After three fulfilling seasons, John has told the story he set out to tell and brought the series to a close in an incredibly poetic way.”

UK Newsagents Releases

Commando 4924 - Space PilotThere are plenty of comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including 2000AD, The Beano, Commando (latest release intel here), Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles, Titan Comics superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Doctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS (collecting their strips from the US format titles) Mega, TOXIC and many others.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is now on sale in many (but not all) Waitrose supermarkets and – at last, selected high street WH Smiths stores – and some comic shops (stockist list here) as well as available on subscription.

So let’s not get too downhearted by some British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour that only those of us over a certain age remember.

Hachette Partworks, whose partwork titles include Doctor Who: The Complete History and Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection, continue their How To Draw The Marvel Way, along with their re-release of their hugely successful part work, Marvel’s Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novel series.

Some of you in certain areas of the country may also be able to pick up a copy of the new Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection, which is currently being road tested by Eaglemoss.

Note that you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying Part Works some are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.

Grant Morrison's 18 Days Trade Paperback Volume 2 Heroes And Legends

Grant Morrison’s 18 Days Trade Paperback Volume 2 Heroes And Legends
Writer: Grant Morrison & Various Artists: Jeevan Kang & Various Cover Artist: Mukesh Singh

From legendary creator Grant Morrison comes the second volume in his epic creation, as the battle between two armies of super warriors plays out on the battlefield as we flashback to see the events that brought people to the war. 18 Days is the story of three generations of super-warriors, meeting for the final battle of their age, a climactic war that concludes the age of the gods and begins the age of man. Collecting the first story arc from the series.
“This is not aLord of the Rings or a Star Wars where the good guys win because they are right,” says Grant Morrison. “The good guys in 18 Days are forced to cheat and lie and break rules to win. Although it has fantastic, mythic trappings, this is a very modern story of realpolitik and the failure of ideals in the face of harsh truth.”
