After last week’s issue introduced the final couple of new stories, it falls to this issue to really get the ball rolling on the thrill train. Judge Dredd and Kingdom have already shown us how they intend to keep the adrenaline running at full steam but can the other strips match their pace? Let’s take a […]
After last week’s jumping-on issue brought us three new stories, Prog 1901 had a lot of potential to live up to. Judge Dredd, Stickleback and Kingdom are joined this week by the opening episodes of two new tales, so let’s waste no time in getting right into them. When it comes to writing action-packed stories […]
2000AD likes to have fairly regular jumping-on points, issues where newcomers can pick up the magazine and be able to follow every story from the start. Prog 1900, out this Wednesday, is one such example of this – and it’s a good one, albeit with a reduced number of stories this week (three instead of […]
It’s all endings this week as 2000AD prepares for its jumping-on point in Prog 1900. If you’re a regular reader, there’s plenty to enjoy in this week’s stories; which provide a range of endings to long-running stories. For newcomers or those interested in starting to read 2000AD on a regular basis, I recommend waiting for next week’s […]

With last week’s issue ending so many strips all at once, it was inevitable that 2000AD Prog 1888 was going to be something either absolutely unmissable, or something of a disappointment. Thankfully there’s a lot here to be pleased about.
This week’s issue of 2000AD continues to be impressive. The amazing cover starts the comic off as it means to go on. This is beautiful work by Cliff Robinson and Dylan Teague. I would not be at all surprised if this turns up as a poster or postcard at some point. Moving on to the […]
If there’s one comic on the market right now that you can guarantee will both impress and entertain in equal measure, it’s 2000AD.
In anthology comics, where storylines are often of varying lengths and titles therefore start and end in different issues, putting together a clear jumping-on point for new readers requires a lot of planning. Prog 1824 shows what happens when all that planning pays off. It is not just a good issue for new readers to start with, it’s a good issue and and of itself.
