"All this week we’ll be celebrating 35 years of Thrill-power with ZARJAZ giveaways!"
In 1977, something amazing happened.

All across the land the first issue of 2000 AD, dated 26th February, arrived in newsagents. And your world has never been the same since.

Thirty-five years on and The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic is still going strong, still packed with top-notch Thrills by some of the world’s greatest comic book artists and writers, and still bringing intense weekly bursts of Thrill-power to the starving masses.

To celebrate this milestone, all this week we will be giving away some exclusive prizes to Squaxx Dek Thargo everywhere, including:

  • copies of Kingdom: The Promised Land signed by New York Times bestselling writer Dan Abnett

  • copies of dinosaurs-farmed-by-cowboys-from-the-future classic Flesh: The Dino Files signed by 2000 AD’s creator and first editor, Pat Mills

  • copies of the hilarious mobster comedy Al’s Baby signed by Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra


Thanks to Planet Replicas, we’ll also be giving one lucky Earthlet the chance to get a custom made Judge bade – featuring their own surname! These high-quality fully licensed badges are a must for budding agents of the law, and the winner will get one embossed with their own name.

And as we head toward 2000 AD’s official birthday, we have the pièce de résistance – an exclusive Mongrol figure from Ashley Woods’ threeA Toys. That’s right, we’re GIVING AWAY one of the most hotly desired piece of 2000 AD merchandise in recent years. Standing over 11-inches high and over 13-inches wide, this fully articulated 1:6 scale figure has been drooled over by fans since its release last year and you’ll get the chance to try and win this stunning figure!

Keep your glues glued to 2000adonline.com, as well as our official Twitter and Facebook feeds, as we gear up to mark 35 years of Thrill-powered awesomeness!

Happy birthday, 2000 AD – it’s going to be a zarjaz week!
