Veteran 2000 AD® artist, Jesus Redondo, is returning to the Galaxy's Greatest Comic for the first time in more than a decade.

As announced at the recent Bristol Comics Expo, the Spanish artist - best known for his work on Book Two of Nemesis the Warlock for 2000 AD and The Mind of Wolfie Smith from Tornado - has drawn a one-part Terror Tale, written by newcomer David Baillie.

Known in his home country for his work on El Capitán Trueno (Captain Thunder), Redondo's work was a familiar feature of British comic books in the 1970s and 1980s, having worked extensively for DC Thompson and IPC.

Redondo, who hails from Valladolid in Spain, last worked for 2000 AD in 2000, drawing a four-part Missionary Man strip. Prior to that he had not drawn for the title since 1984.

The one-off Terror Tale, entitled Birth of Mazzikim, will appear in 2000 AD prog 1737 - available next Wednesday (8 June) from all good stockists.

Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said:
"Jesus is one of the greats from the first Golden Age of 2000 AD - he has a style and a flair that is indefatigably European and, along with other artists such as Massimo Bellardinelli, marked 2000 AD out in its early years as a comic to watch.
"It's fantastic to see him back in the pages of 2000 AD. We're seeing a lot of familiar names returning alongside some of the freshest talent in comics today."
