Quick, which publishers are the pioneers of digital comics? You might think IDW or Marvel, but the UK’s Rebellion, publisher of 2000 AD, has been selling digital editions of its book since all the way back in 2005 with great success—it’s the fastest and cheapest way to get Judge Dredd if you don’t live in the UK after all. Now they are making their downloads DRM free. All comics purchased—past and present—via any method—web, Android, iOS—will now be available in DRM-free PDF and CBZ files.
Starting with moderator Mike Molcher quickly breaking two microphones in a row and ending with him soliciting selected members of the audience for sexual favours, the 2000AD Panel lived up to the reputation carefully cultivated by the company. He was joined onstage by Ian Edginton, Al Ewing, and Andy Diggle to talk about all the […]
2000AD have sent the news across that they’ve made all 20 volumes of Judge Dredd’s Complete Casefiles available digitally for iPods and iPads and all those other futuristic things you people have. Via their iOS App, readers can now buy and read thirty years of Dredd history.
Tharg popped round for a biscuit earlier, before thrusting a piece of yellowing paper into my hands and saying “this can run immediately.” It appears that 2000AD are endorsing the 18th September as ‘a day of action’, you see, during which they hope to drum up support for a sequel to the pretty-brill 2012 DREDD […]
As evidenced by the damning photos of an unconscious Tharg curled up drunk under a convention table, 2000AD have been at SDCC in full force this year. Yesterday they teamed up with IDW – who handle the American printing of many of their titles – for a panel where they announced several new projects, and […]
Starting this week, Arthur Wyatt will be the writer for a new series in Judge Dredd Megazine which focuses on Dan Francisco, the former Chief Judge. Francisco has been one of the most prominent Judge Dredd characters for several years now, having started out as the star of his own reality TV series which proved […]
In Dredd’s long and illustrious career we’ve seen many a female Judge stepping up to the plate, from Anderson to McGruder, but the iconic British strip has never been written by a woman. Until now.
2000AD, the British anthology comic, announced that their most recent issue – last Wednesday’s prog 2814 – would be an easy jump-on point for anybody. Anyone can pick it up and get an idea of what 2000AD is all about, what the writing style is like, and how the stories work. So, that came across […]
Mike Molcher is the PR Co-ordinator for Rebellion, meaning he is the man directly responsible for promoting their comics, 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine. If you’ve noticed over the last few months that more people are talking about 2000AD, be it the recent ‘Trifecta’ storyline, or the ‘gay Judge Dredd’ teaser which got picked up […]
Every so often Tharg gets on the blower and gives me a ring, to tell me about new things coming up at 2000AD, the comics magazine he edits. And today he had something rather exciting to show me – this teaser image from Greg Staples, showing Judge Dredd villain Judge Death…
