Rebellion Releases — 2 June 2021


Every so often 2000 AD clears the decks and brings in a raft of new stories so that new readers can jump on board - and Prog 2234 is the next jumping on issue! As well as a Judge Dredd story written and drawn by artist Chris Weston, three new series make their debut:

Mechastopholes
It is over a year since the Fall, when the demons rose and society collapsed. A band of human survivors have sought refuge in a demonically powered robot called MECHASTOPHELES, and they use this infernal ark as a means to seek sanctuary, searching for a safe haven away from the creatures that now stalk the land. But the demon bound to the mek, Apollyoneth Morga, has enemies in Hell too...

Department K
The Regened series makes it into 2000 AD proper! Justice Dept has many divisions tasked with dealing with the threats that face the metropolis, and the mysterious DEPARTMENT K is a branch of Tek-Div, whose brief is to tackle interdimensional enemies seeking to break through the walls of reality. Headed by Judge Kirby, and comprising of intern Afua, Mechanismo droid Estabon and the alien Blackcurrant, they’ve recently returned to MC-1...

Chimpsky's Law
The fan favourite character gets his one series! Late 21st-century science gave primates the ability to speak and socialise with humans, and there’s an enclave within the metropolis, Apetown, where simian citizens can live and work. Noam Chimpsky is a super-intelligent ape, who has chosen to look after his fellow human civilians in his local sector, ensuring criminality is discouraged — often under the Judges’ noses — and people are cared for...
