Preview: 2000 AD #1886 & Judge Dredd Megazine 349
A triple dose of action this week as two new 2000 AD titles hit the shelves, and there's a Zarjaz sale to get your teeth into!
Over in this week's climatic prog, it's the final epic episode of Slaine: A Simple Killing - is he too late to save Sinead? The judges are under a mental attack as Dredd tries to figure out the secret of Traumatown, whilst Grey Area and Indigo Prime also continue.
Tharg's Terror Tales returns with a brand-new strip featuring art by newcomer Tom Foster. Foster, the winner of the Portfolio Competition at the 2013 Thought Bubble comic art festival, was chosen by a panel of top 2000 AD talent as the winner of the third portfolio competition. The prize was a paid gig at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and ‘Done Deal’, written by Alec Worley (Age of the Wolf) and lettered by Ellie De Ville features Foster's artwork.
Of this opportunity, Tom said: “To my mind, 2000 AD's portfolio competition at Thought Bubble is the best thing any comics publisher is doing to encourage new talent at the moment. It gave me exactly what I needed as a newcomer: the right place at the right time – and I'm thrilled to have been given that chance.”
Also out today is the latest Judge Dredd Megazine!
Has Dredd finally met his match? Alone and isolated, he faces a villain who is truly Rad to the Bone in the concluding episode of this T C Eglington epic! Anderson and Dredd go head to head as Dead End continues.
Current Dredd artist Nick Percival and David Pugh are put under the Interrogation booth each. David Baillie brings us a new Tales from Mega-City One in Two Tonnes of Trouble whilst the ever intriguing Man from the Ministry also continues. This issue also comes bagged with a Judge Kayrn collection to round things off!
If that's not enough for you, the 2000 AD website has some Zarjaz thrills in it's graphic novel flash sale. Stocks are limited so grab what you can whilst you can! We're loving the look of Thrill Power Overload! and The Art of Judge Dredd for those prices!
