Rebellion Releases: 2000AD Regened offers more teen thrills, out today

On sale today from Rebellion is the latest 2000AD Regened, as Tharg’s nephew Joko-Jargo takes controls of the Command Module from Uncle Tharg for one week only, and charges the creator droids with scripting and drawing stories for Terrans of any size. 

You can’t miss the cover in your newsagent, by Australian concept and storyboard artist Peter Yong, his second for the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Peter, who works in the video games and animation industries, first saw print in 2000AD with his winning  Angel Gang piece for “Art Stars” back in October 2021, and provided the cover for Prog 2288.

Peter, who talks about the new cover here on the 2000AD web site, is also a nifty comic strip creator too – check out some samples of his strips, The Rockabilly Plump Corps, an 80-page comic he wrote and illustrated, and Clash Royale, on his own web site!

This Regened issue features another complete Cadet Dredd thriller, this time by James Peaty and Joe Currie, as a cadet from Mega-City Two joins the Academy of Law in The Exchange; dwarf private eye Renk returns after his debut tale in Prog 2296 for the follow-up “Twinkle Toes”, once again by Paul Starkey and Anna Readman; artificial intelligence and its impact on a human workforce comes under the spotlight in the Future Shock, “AutoCop” by Karl Stock and Toby Willsmer; and we’re back at magical comprehensive “Lowborn High” for the latest adventure by David Barnett and Mike Walters.

Several of the series that first appeared in the Regened progs have now been collected into graphic novels, including Pandora Perfect, Department K and Full Tilt Boogie .

Four 2000AD Regened anthology volumes are also available, compiling the strips from previous Regened issues.

Cadet Dredd: The Exchange by James Peaty (Writer) Joe Currie (Artist) Annie Parkhouse (Letterer)

Mega-City One, 2077 AD. Home to over 800 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. On one side is the polluted Black Atlantic, and to the west is the blasted radlands of the Cursed Earth. Overcrowding in the metropolis is rife, unemployment is at ninety per cent, boredom is universal and crime is rampant. Only the Judges — a zero- tolerance police force empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. CADET JOE DREDD — together with his clone-brother Rico — is a rising star in Justice Department, and will one day be its finest officer. Make no mistake, he is the Law!

For as long as anyone can remember, Wychdusk Manor has been the school to which all the top magical novices are sent, where they are trained to become the world ’s greatest wizards. There, students are taught every form of spellcasting by the wisest of mages, and to be part of Wychdusk’s alumni is an incredible honour. But what about those that don’t make the grade, that don’t have the talent to make it to this prestigious establishment? For them, there’s LOWBORN HIGH , a rundown inner-city comprehensive that is often struggling with funding. Androgeus Frost has recently joined the school, becoming friends with Maisy, Ali and Drill and forming the Deadbeats Club, but he feels he belongs at Wychdusk…

Out in the vast reaches of the universe, there are an infinite number of stories waiting to be told. These cautionary tales pass from traveller to traveller in the spaceports and around campfires on distant planets, acquiring the status of legend, their shocking ends a salutary lesson in hubris. Anything is possible in these twisted trips into the galaxy’s dark side. Abandon your preconceptions, and expect the unexpected. Now, in the near future, the increasing use of AI is causing much concern amongst human workers, fearful of losing their jobs to automation. Murtin Spork is a plasti-soup taster, who thinks his role is irreplaceable, but technology is progressing at an alarming rate…

by Paul Starkey (Writer) Anna Readman (Artist) Gary Caldwell (Colourist) Simon Bowland (Letterer)

Crepuscularia is the biggest city in the eastern region, sitting on the edge of the Weeping Desert, home to over fifty thousand beings. It’s a massive melting pot, in which entities of all types live together amongst its narrow streets, and next to anything is bought and sold from the various traders. But if you want someone or something found, and you don’t have the gold to employ a wizard, or the silver for a warrior, then dwarf RENK will take your copper coin. A wily private detective, his diminutive stature belies a dogged determination to locate his quarry, and he knows the vast metropolis like the back of his hand…
