Flesh chomps back into 2000AD

Flesh: Midnight Cowboys

Time-travelling cowboys and murderous lizards are rampaging back into the pages of 2000AD, as Flesh returns again.

One of the all-time classic strips from early 2000AD, Flesh made a thrilling, blood-splattering return to the weekly British anthology title last year after a hiatus of more than 30 years.

Created by Pat Mills (Marshal Law, Sláine: The Horned God) and Spanish artist Boix, Flesh: Midnight Cowboys follows on from the first series, with black and white artwork from series regular James McKay.

Last year’s Flesh: Texas was the long-awaited sequel to the much-loved original Flesh – part of the line-up in the very first issue of 2000AD in 1977.

The new series debuted this week in Prog 1774, on sale in the UK now, is on sale online on 21st March, and in North America from 28th March.

Flesh: Midnight Cowboys premiered with a riotous wraparound cover by 2000AD legend Mark Harrison.
