2015 Summer Special – out in print and digital on 24 June!

2000 AD Summer Special
Cover by Greg Staples
24 June for just £3.50 in stores
digitally from the 2000 AD webshop and the 2000 AD Apple and Android apps

There is no cover image yet – I’ll bring that when I see it – however there are some preview pages at the end of this article.

The 2014 Sci-Fi Special was a test run, 2000AD said this at the time. Well it sold very well, again we knew this. So there will be another special this year.

You can read more about last year’s Special elsewhere. Brlow are the details, all I know at the moment, about this year’s Special.

Contents & Creators

Judge Dredd: Let’s Go To Work by Mike Carroll & Jake Lynch
Rogue Trooper: Death of a Demon by Guy Adams & Darren Douglas
Ace Trucking Co.: Star’s Truck by Eddie Robson & Nick Dyer
Survival Geeks: Movie Night by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby & Neil Googe
Robo-Hunter: Iron Sam by Alec Worley & Mark Simmons
Future Shocks: Dust by Gary Blatchford & John Higgins

Some interesting titles there, I’d have liked to see a Rogue Trooper story from Gordon Rennie tying in with Jaegir but I guess that’s asking a lot. Very interested in what they do with Ace Trucking Co. which was originally drawn by Massimo Belardinelli. Should be a great Prog.

Here are the preview pages, they are all described by Michael Molcher, PR for 2000AD, as ‘early pencils. The first two pages are from Survival Geeks by Neil Googe. The second two are from Robo-Hunter by Mark Simmons.

  1. That looks like the Licourice Allsorts mascot – that kind of character has never gotten 2000AD into trouble in the past 🙂

    • LOL

      Bertie who now?

      Since October last year the Parody clause has been in place so all good.

      Those famous pages would be fine if they were new. But still no reprint for those.
