Immerse yourselves in the radiant glow of Thrill-power, courtesy of another weekly blast of SF excitement from 2000 AD!
2000 AD Prog 1991 is out now with Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra reuniting for a brand-new Mega-City thriller: Ladykiller, which finds the future lawman returning to a case that he would very much like to see closed — that of wanted mass murderer PJ Maybe, who has now been evading his clutches one way or another for nearly 30 years!
The psychopathic genius made his debut way back in August 1987, and he’s still racking up the body count. If you’re unfamiliar with Maybe’s criminal career, you can pick up issue 36 of the Hachette Partworks Mega Collection that charts his bloody rise — back issues of all the MC books can be ordered from www.judgedreddcollection.com — in preparation for this latest chapter.
Will Dredd finally track down his nemesis? Keep watching the progs, but no small amount of blood is about to be spilled in the tense stand-off between cop and quarry...!
