Rebellion Releases - 16 September 2020

It's Super Wednesday on 16 September with TWO major comic book milestones available in print and digital - the Battle of Britain Special and the 30th anniversary edition of the Judge Dredd Megazine!

Battle revolutionised comics in the 1970s - gritty, hardcore war stories that rejected gung-ho patriotism in favour of telling the stories of the soldiers on the ground. It paved the way for 2000 AD and this special issue, timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, features new work by Garth Ennis (Preacher), Alex de Campi (Madi), Glenn Fabry (Preacher), Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy) and many more.

For 30 years, the Judge Dredd Megazine has explored the world of Dredd and this anniversary issue features some incredible new stories - from Kenneth Neimand and Dave Taylor's MEGATROPOLIS, an Elseworlds-style series which reimagines Mega-City One as a Futurist dystopia in the style of Metropolis, and DREADNAUGHTS, a frighteningly topical tale by Mike Carroll and John Higgins set in the earliest days of Justice Department, when riots and disorder threaten to tear America apart - and the Judges begin their rise to power. This issue also features the first part of the serialised 2000 AD Encyclopedia, a sure-to-be-indispensible guide to the stories and characters from more than four decades of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!
