Rebellion Releases — 23 November 2022

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a super dose of Thrill-power to take you into the new year – so let's take a look ahead to the bumper Xmas issue of 2000 AD!

Featuring a new cover by Andy Clarke (Batman), 2000 AD Prog 2312 celebrates the festive period with the traditional 100-page end of year special, featuring a brand-new line-up of stories!

Judge Dredd faces off against an old enemy that’s bust out of containment in “The Last Temptation of Joe” by Ken Niemand & Lee Carter; Proteus Vex must negotiate a full-blown interstellar war in “Crawlspace” by Mike Carroll & Jake Lynch; Cyd learns more about her state of being in “The Out” Book Three by Dan Abnett & Mark Harrison; ABC Warrior Joe Pineapples reveals his past in “Tin Man” by Pat Mills, Simon Bisley & Clint Langley; Rogue Trooper encounters Nort genetic experiments in “Brothers” by Kek-W & Warwick Fraser-Coombe.

Plus, with the unexpected return of the anarchic alien, Bonjo From Beyond The Stars, by Garth Ennis and the late Kevin O’Neill and a special Judge Dredd tribute to the much-missed Alan Grant, this is a Christmas issue not to be missed!

The year is 2096 and Earth has been reduced to an uninhabited wasteland. What was left of humanity was evacuated into overpopulated space stations, or 'Habitats'. Nolan Maslow, a journalist working for The Herald, is investigating the death of HSD agent Brinkmann and the sect that has infiltrated the maintenance workers of Ludmilla Habitat. He will find out that even his most outrageous theories cannot encompass what is actually happening behind the scenes of the habitat. Taking place during the events of Brink Book One, this graphic novel adds extra layers to the story of Bridget Kurtis and her ongoing fight against the forces which are haunting the remains of humanity and driving them to madness.

Strontium Dog: The Son

Rebellion 978-178618676-8, 24 November 2022, 128pp, £16.99 / $24.00. Available via Amazon.

In The Son Johnny Alpha is assigned to mentor Kenton Sternhammer, one of the new recruits to the ranks of the Strontium Dogs. Johnny knows that Kenton Sternhammer is his old partner Wulf’s offspring and while Kenton understandably wants to follow in his father's footsteps, Johnny is reluctant to allow it, knowing the fate that has befallen many a Strontium Dog, including Wulf, a death which still eats away at Johnny's conscience. This brand-new collection showcases all-time comics legend Carlos Ezquerra's final work on the character he co-created for Starlord in 1978, drawn before his death in 2018.
