Here’s your British creator and publisher-skewed comics shopping list for this week, featuring new comics on sale in comic shops (from Wednesday 21st December) and newsagents.

Have a great festive season, enjoy your comics and our very best wishes for 2017… But remember that even in this festive period, it is of course your duty as comic fans to ensure the 2000AD Christmas Special, the new Judge Dredd Magazine, the Beano, EPIC and other titles with originated strip are prominently displayed in all newsagents… Especially WHSmith, where these comics with short shelf lives are bewilderingly hidden from view, damaging potential sales.

Hook Jaw #1 Cover A by Conor Boyle
Hook Jaw #1 Cover A by Conor Boyle

In comic shops this week, delayed from last: the first Issue of Titan Comics Hook Jaw (inspired by the original strip from 1970s comic Action), written by Si Spurrier and drawn by Conor Boyle, a layered affair of a tale setting up what’s shaping already into an environmentally-themed action adventure, complete with an unhinged killer shark.

Those worried by the misportrayal of sharks when this book was first announced should have their fears allayed, while those who grew up enjoying Hook Jaw ripping into human scumbags will not be disappointed either. Yes, we know it isn’t very Christmassy, but a deranged shark clearly has no concept of Yuletide…

Also out this week there’s the continuing adventures of Assassin’s Creed in Awakenings, Templars and next week, on 27th December, it’s the final issue of Assassin’s Creed: Assassin’s with #14 – and nothing will be the same again!

These titles are just in time for the hugely anticipated Assassin’s Creed movie starring Michael Fassbender, in cinemas now in the US and 1st January in the UK.

The stunning first issue of World War X aldo debuts this week – an apocalyptic, B-movie infused sci-fi horror from the artist of B.P.R.D. and A God Somewhere, Peter Snejbjerg.

You can find more details of these, as well as other titles including the next instalments of Mycroft Holmes, Warhammer 40,000, Doctor Who and more below.

2000AD/Rebellion

2000AD Prog 2011

Still on Sale: 2000AD Christmas Special 2016

Read Colin Noble’s Review

2000AD Prog 2011 sees the return of Chris Weston (The Invisibles) to “Judge Dredd” and a brand new cover by veteran artist Cliff Robinson, plus everything from everyone behaving themselves in Mega-City One (briefly) to giant trans-dimensional worms and the continued rise of the Dark Judges!

This bumper 100-page issue is a veritable festive selection box of Thrill-powered treats, including traditional staples like “Judge Dredd’ and “Ace Trucking Co.” alongside new favourites such as “Aquila”, “Kingdom”, “The Order” and “The Fall of Deadworld”.

Prog 2011 Kingmaker
Prog 2011 Kingmaker

Plus, two brand new series debut this issue – in “Kingmaker”, writer Ian Edginton (Hinterkind), artist Leigh Gallagher (Defoe) and letterer Ellie De Ville (ABC Warriors) take the long-worn tropes of JRR Tolkien and smash them into Star Wars for a cross-genre tale about rebellion and ancient evil.

In noir magical thriller “Hope” by writer Guy Adams (Goldtiger), artist Jimmy Broxton (Knight and Squire) and letterer Simon Bowland (James Bond), it’s a 1940s Hollywood where victory in World War Two was achieved by occult means. Magic is now a part of daily life, but the costs can be high – especially for Mallory Hope, a magician and private investigator who only wants to find his wife and son.

And, last but not least, there’s a history of the 1980s’ ‘horror comic for girls’, Misty, as well as a special preview of “Read Em and Weep”, the new serial killer novel by Pat Mills set in the world of British comics, with illustrations by Kevin O’Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen)!

The full line-up of Prog 2011 is:

· “Judge Dredd: Boxing Day” by Rob Williams (Writer) Chris Weston (Artist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer)
· “The Fall of Deadworld: Winter Break” by Kek-W (Writer) Dave Kendall (Artist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer)
· “Kingmaker” by Ian Edginton (Writer) Leigh Gallagher (Artist) Ellie De Ville (Letterer)
· “Aquila: Mors Venetiae” by Gordon Rennie (Writer) Paul Davidson (Artist) Gary Caldwell (Colourist) Simon Bowland (Letterer)
· “Ace Trucking Co.: The Festive Flipflop” by Eddie Robson (Writer) Nigel Dobbyn (Artist) Ellie De Ville (Letterer)
· “Kingdom: As It Is In Heaven” by Dan Abnett (Writer) Richard Elson (Artist) Ellie De Ville (Letterer)
· “The Order: Wyrm War” by Kek-W (Writer) John Burns (Artist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer)
· Hope: … For The Future” by Guy Adams (Writer) Jimmy Broxton (Artist) Simon Bowland (Letterer)

2000AD Prog 2011 is priced at £4.99/$9.99 and is available now all good newsagents and comic book stores in the UK and Ireland

ANDERSON // Judgement Call (Part: 1)

Mega-City One, the cusp of the twenty-second century. Eight hundred million people are living in the ruin of the old world, a planet devastated by atomic war.

Elephant on the MoonElephant on the Moon
Author: Mikołaj Pasiński
Illustrator: Gosia Herba

Elephant on the Moon is a richly illustrated tale of courage, passion and determination. Although it is directed mainly at younger readers, it refers to serious events.

In a small town there lives a lady astronomer. Every evening she looks at the moon through her telescope. She knows it like the back of her own hand. Even in her sleep she can name all the mountains, the craters and the oceans of the silvery globe. One night she makes an amazing discovery. Can it be that there’s an elephant living on the moon? The members of the Moon Society refuse to believe her.

Elephant on the Moon is a richly illustrated tale of courage, passion and determination. Although it is directed mainly at younger readers, it refers to serious events. Sir Paul Neal in the seventeenth century – one of the astronomers of the Royal Society – is supposed to have been the first to observe an elephant on the moon. At the time, his discovery provoked much confusion and fired the imaginations of many writers. Thanks to Samuel Butler’s satirical account, the story reached France. Fontaine himself wrote a tale about it – “Un animal dans la lune.” Almost 350 years later Gosia Herba and Mikołaj Pasiński have come back to this story of the moon, and out of it they have spun a new tale full of adventure.

 

Erik The Red: King of WinterErik the Red
Author: Søren Mosdal

Inspired by the real story of the colonisation of Greenland, a tale of the wild North, masterfully told by the Danish author Søren Mosdal.

In the year 982, Erik Torvaldsson, also known Erik the Red, left Iceland following a bloody feud with his neighbour. He set out to find a mysterious island to the north. He found it and, to attract settlers, he named it called it Greenland.
With gifts and bribes he ruled his colony undisturbed by Christian kings and priests until the beginnig of the year 1000.
