Some quirk of the interweb meant I missed an incoming transmission from Tharg about this week’s Rebellion releases, including the latest 2000AD, Prog 2213, with its stunning cover by Cliff Robinson, coloured by Dylan Teague, on sale now as both a physical and digital edition.
Given current pandemic restrictions, perhaps it’s time to give the digital edition a go – links below!
Also released this week wee the following collections: Third World War Book Two: Back to Babylon, the digital only Armoured Gideon Volume One and 2000AD Regened.
Of particular interest to classic British comic fans will be the book, King’s Reach – John Sanders’ Twenty-Five Years at the Top of Comics, which, for me, proved something of a mixed bag in terms the memories posted by the man in charge of editorial development of all IPC/ Fleetway’s comics in the 1970s but is nevertheless an absorbing read. I’m hoping to post a review some time week.
