My subscription copy of Prog 1899 arrived in the post on Saturday and will be in shops Wednesday 17th September.
Prog 1900 will be arriving with subscribers on Saturday 20th September and will be on general sale on Wednesday 24th September. With three new stories this is a Jump On point.
2000AD regularly have a Jump On Prog where new or lapsed readers can have a fresh start. All the stories are new and usually if information is needed from previous stories there is a ‘what happened last’ style introduction. Most writers for 2000AD though will give all the information that is essential in the story itself.

But what is his darkest secret? And can he keep it hidden ’til the very end?
