by Andy Haighon 28/02/2017
Rogue Trooper, the iconic blue skinned infantry man created by Gerry Finley Day and Dave Gibbons in 1981, is one of the only 2000AD characters besides Judge Dredd to actually get his own game. Released in 2006 and simply titled Rogue Trooper the third person shooter game actually made a pretty decent go at adapting […]

by Andy Haighon 26/08/2016
In news that will make British readers of a certain age rather nostalgic the BBC reports Rebellion, the owners of British comics mainstay 2000AD, have just purchased the Fleetway archive from Egmont.

by Peter Ray Allisonon 18/06/2016
Continuing with the ongoing examination of the fallout from the Chaos Day storyline, Judge Dredd: Titan examines how the judge penal system has been affected and the consequences of this for Mega City One. The cover of Judge Dredd: Titan is somewhat misleading.  The graphic novel starts out, much like the cover, with a platoon […]

British Comics Institution 2000AD is 39 This Week

by Andy Haighon 27/02/2016
British comics staple 2000AD is 39 this week. I wasn’t even born when the first issue of 2000AD arrived back in 1977 costing the sum of 8p in Earth money but I like many other British kids soon discovered the thrill power of 2000AD. Personally as much as I like X-Men and Batman comics have […]

Alo Alo Alo I am the Law! Brit-Cit Noir Review

by Andrew Corbanon 17/02/2016
I have always had an on-again-off-again relationship with 2000AD’s comics. Some I really enjoy and some… not so much. I love all of the classics; Strontium Dog, Nemesis the Warlock and the book that 2000AD is most famous for, the behelmeted and grim faced personification of justice himself, Judge Dredd. So when I found out that […]

Does Dredd Still Have the Thrill Power? – Judge Dredd Megazine #369

by Ben Feeon 09/02/2016
OK, so first things first: I’m British, so I know who Judge Dredd is, and I grew up aware and sometimes reading 2000AD (kids aren’t always good at consistency, we’re too easily distracted!). However, it’s probably been more than 20 years since I purposefully sat down and read an issue; I’ve flirted about the edges, […]

by Peter Ray Allisonon 08/02/2016
Dead Zone is the latest instalment in the ongoing epic of Judge Dredd, which continues the ongoing fallout of the Day of Chaos storyline.

Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection

by Peter Ray Allisonon 08/02/2015
“Justice has a price. The price is freedom” (Judge Dredd: America, by John Wagner) 2000AD has long been an institution of British comics, ever since it was first published in 1977. The fact that it is still the only weekly science-fiction comic continuing to this day gives us an indication as to its excellence. Whilst […]
