1 day ago
It's another pulse-pounding issue of the greatest comic in the galaxy, Terrans - 2000 AD Prog 1987 is out now!
The current series of Grey Area comes to its starspanning conclusion this prog, but fear not, Terrans, the Abnett and Harrison droids are already hard at work on the next arc of the alien-immigration epic, so expect to see that materialising within the pages of my illustrious organ early in 2017.
Elsewhere, we reach the penultimate part of Sláine: Psychopomp, Black Shuck hits the halfway mark, and both Dredd and Brink are building to their respective climaxes in a month’s time — but plenty more zarjaz Thrills are waiting in the wings to dazzle your eye-nodes, most immediately a brand-new Scarlet Traces story, Cold War, by Ian Edginton and D’Israeli, which commences in seven days’ time.
2000 AD Prog 1987 is available now in both print and digital, as well as through the zarjaz 2000 AD apps for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices!
