Zenith Collection content details, 1st July release date

Zenith CollectionThere’s less than a week to go before pre-orders open for the first ever complete reprint of Grant Morrison and Steve Yeowell’s superhero 2000AD series Zenith.

The limited edition hardback book will only be available from the 2000AD online shop and is restricted to 1000 copies – and you need to register to order, so probably best not to leave that aspect until the point at which you can pre-order the book itself – from at 6.00pm BST on 1st July.

Never collected in its entirety before, as we previously reported, this is a unique opportunity to own the whole of Morrison’s first superhero series first published in 2000AD in a never-to-be-repeated format.

Zenith is the world’s first “Superbrat” – a vain, self-obsessed, egotistical pop singer whose only interests are girls, partying, and where he is in the charts. Yet he does not realise that there are mighty forces at work which seek to enslave the Earth – and use him to do it!

The collection will feature all four series, or ‘phases’, including material that has never been reprinted before, plus sketches, covers and pin-ups.

The Complete Zenith will include:

  • Phase 1: Tygers (Grant Morrison, Steve Yeowell)
  • Phase 2: The Hollow Land (Morrison, Yeowell)
  • Maximan (2000AD Winter Special 1988) (Morrison, M. Carmona)
  • Phase 3: War in Heaven (Morrison, Yeowell)
  • Mandala: Shadows & Reflections (2000AD Annual 1990) (Morrison, Jim McCarthy)
  • Phase 4 (Grant Morrison, Steve Yeowell)
  • zzzzenith.com (2000AD Prog 2001) (Morrison, Yeowell)
  • A Night 2 Remember (2000AD 25th Anniversary, Prog 1280) (Morrison, Yeowell)
  • Tales of the Alternative Earths (Mark Millar text story, 2000 AD Winter Special 1990)

The shop will also give fans the chance to purchase exclusive Zenith T-shirts, as debuted at C2E2 in Chicago in April, as part of the build up to the reprint announcement.
