5 days ago
It’s that time of the week again, Terrans, when our rivet-poppingly busy creator meks seek to energise your mundane existences with the Thrill-power thrumming through the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic — and what cosmic zarjazness do we have for you inside this pulse-pounding prog!
While, alas, the third book of the ultra-popular Brink comes to a close, there’s more from the Abnett script-droid as he reteams with Mark Harrison for the return of Grey Area, back from its mid-series break and thundering towards this arc’s scrotnig finale!
Kymn and Bitch are in the hands of Grell’s black-ops unit, working outside ETC laws, while Bulliet and crew are on the case, sniffing around the inconsistencies in their friends’ reported deaths. A reckoning is coming and you won’t want to miss it!
Elsewhere, it’s all change in the Grand Hall’s big chair as Logan steps up to be the new Chief Judge after Hershey’s resignation, but is his belief in the Mechanismo programme going to put him on collision course with Dredd, his former mentor? Both men are as stubborn as each other and neither is going to back down readily. Bring the popcorn, humes, and enjoy!
2000 AD Prog 2118 is out now from all good newsagents and comic book stores, plus digitally from our webshop and apps! Don't forget that if you buy an issue of 2000 AD in the first week of its release then postage in the UK is free!
