Celebrating 46 years in print, 2000AD Prog 2320, the latest edition of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, featuring a classy cover by Cliff Robinson and Dylan Teague, is out now, offering another ghafflebette assault on the senses courtesy of my ever-busy creator-bots. There’s more mekmayhem, time-splitting terror, cosmic carnage and world-hopping wonder in the latest instalments of “Joe Pineapples“, “The Order“, “Proteus Vex” and “The Out“, plus there’s have a complete “Judge Dredd” thriller, too, from the Ken Niemand and Kieran McKeown droids as Ol’ Stoney- Face reflects on the dangers he’s faced across his sixty-six years on the streets in Taking Doors!
