Rebellion Releases — 18 August 2021

"I am Sláine Mac Roth. I am Sláine Mac Macha. I am Sláine Mac Duban. And the ancestors are with me!"

With incredible artwork retooled and remastered for collection, Sláine: Dragontamer is the stunning new adventure for Pat Mills and Angie Kincaid's legendary Celtic warrior, Sláine!
Originally serialised in the pages of 2000 AD, this incredible hardcover sees Sláine lead a rebellion against the tyrannical reign of the Emperor Brutus and his Trojan army, and features jaw-dropping art by standout talent Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer, Avengers). As Brutus uses dragons to bolster his despotic reign and spread terror across the land, Sláine takes the fight all the way to New Troy - and discovers the secrets that lie in Brutus's dungeons.

Out on 28 September in standard hardcover from all good book and comic book retailers, as well as an exclusive hardcover from the 2000 AD webshop, Dragontamer features multiple pages that have been remastered specifically for this collection by Manco, enhancing the storytelling and impact of his critically-acclaimed work on the series, and transforming the original serialised story into a career-defining work of art.

The collection is rounded off by back-up stories featuring the art of Chris Weston (Judge Dredd, The Filth) and Kyle Hotz (Carnage, Captain Marvel)

The signed limited edition hardcover, available exclusively from 2000 AD's webshop, also features a stunning new cover by Manco.

Hell hath no fury like Barbara Hershey! You think you know her story. Chief Judge of Mega-City One, Barbara Hershey had been a powerful ally to Judge Dredd, until she became infected with an alien pathogen and – supposedly - died. But little do the citizens and judges of Mega-City One suspect that Hershey’s death was faked. Now, join fan favourite character Judge Hershey as she embarks on a new adventure beyond the grave and beyond the walls of Mega-City One, to right the wrongs of her past and dispense justice! Critically acclaimed creative team Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who) and Simon Fraser (Judge Dredd, Doctor Who) tell a globe-spanning, gritty story of retribution.

The Stainless Steel Rat by Kelvin Gosnell & Carlos Ezquerra
Rebellion ISBN 978-178108899-9, 19 August 2021, 208pp, £19.99. Available via Amazon.

Long out of print, the adaptation of Harry Harrison's science-fiction classic by Kelvin Gosnell and Carlos Ezquerra is back in a gorgeous new edition! James Bolivar diGriz aka 'The Stainless Steel Rat' is many things, including a con man, a thief and a member of an elite law-enforcement agency known as the Special Corps. After escaping the corps, the Rat crosses paths with the beautiful but deadly Angelina. Like Jim diGriz she is also a master criminal, albeit a lot more ruthless. They are a match made in hell! After marrying Angelina, the Rat has to travel through time to stop a master criminal meddling with the past and then later help overthrown an evil President by running for the job himself! A classic from 2000 AD's first 'golden age', Stainless Steel Rat is a must-read for fans of Harrison or old school sci-fi action with bold characters and a wry twist of humour, complemented by Ezquerra's dynamic and inimitable artwork. This brand new edition includes, for the first time, the stunning colour centre spreads as they originally appeared in 2000 AD.”
