Something For The Weekend? Judge Dredd takes on the Texans in 2000AD

If you’re heading to your local comic shop today (Saturday 7th December 2017), here’s some of the new releases you may find. (List courtesy First Age Comics, Lancaster).

Our normal more detailed round up of new US comics and newsagents titles will return next week.

However, here at the start of 2017 – the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’s fortieth anniversary year – we can’t not note the latest issue of 2000AD (Prog 2012).

Behind the cover by Luke Preece and joining the second episodes of “Kingdom”, “The Order”, “Kingmaker”, and “Hope” is a brand-new case for Judge Dredd by Michael Carroll and Tiernen Trevallion as the lawman trails a fugitive to Texas City, and enlists some local help. Following the former Chief Judge of TC’s attempt to mount a coup in Mega-City One, MC-1’s Justice Department is working very closely with the new regime. Very closely indeed…

Prog 2012 is on sale now in both print from the 2000AD  webshop, all good newsagents and comic book stores, and digitally through the zarjaz 2000 lAD apps for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices.
