Digital Releases For 2021 From 2000 AD

As we inch forever closer to 2021, we start to look forward to what is to come. In this case it’s from 2000 AD. Due to *waves hand* ‘all this’, digital releases seem to be doing well, and 2000 AD has noticed this. As part of their slate of digital releases are a number of comics that have never been digitally released before.

Here’s what they have:

From demon-hunting robots to dinosaur-hunting cowboys, soul-hunting centurions to pirate-hunting time-travellers – Rebellion is pleased to announce a brand new series of digital-only 2000 AD collections for 2021!

Featuring work by Garth Ennis (PreacherThe Boys), Sean Phillips (CriminalReckless), Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk), John Wagner (Judge Dredd), Alan Grant (Batman), and Pat Mills (Marshal Law), the new series of digital collections will bring together thrills old and new – including some that have never been available digitally before!

The new digital releases will be available from the 2000 AD app for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices, as DRM-free PDF/CBZ downloads from the 2000 AD webshop, and on Amazon Kindle devices.

Ben Smith, Head of Film, TV and Publishing at Rebellion, said: “This new series of digital-only collections available from our app and webshop are a fantastic dive into 2000 AD’s incredible backlist. Our archives are bursting at the seams with hidden gems that have either never been collected or just haven’t been digitised before, so it’s great to be able to make them available. The advance of digital-only collections is that we can bring these classics direct to the readers without having to add even more books to our already bumper publishing schedule.”

The new digital-first schedule begins in January with a special edition of John Tomlinson and Simon Jacob’s Armoured Gideon, which features never-before-reprinted extra stories ‘No, No, Nanette’ from 2000 AD Prog 722, ‘Starhavon’s Edge’ from the 1990 2000 AD Sci Fi Special and ‘Making Movies’ from the 1992 2000 AD Sci Fi Special. Gideon is a mechanical ghost-buster from the abode of demons, dubbed ’The Edge’, who keeps the temporal plane clear of supernatural interference!

Old school fans will once again be able to dive into Tom Tully, John Richardson, Steve Dillon and Johnny Johnstone’s The Mean Arena, a brutal mix of rugby, football and all-out street brawls, devised by greedy promoters and played in evacuated towns where the possibility of death lurks around every corner!

The schedule includes three treats from the oeuvre of writer John Smith – post-apocalyptic fever dream Revere, dinosaurs-meet-Running ManSlaughter Bowl, and the stunningly beautiful environmental tale Firekind. And there are also modern series such as the latest collection of Ancient Roman soul-hunter Aquila by Gordon Rennie, Paul Davidson and Patrick Goddard; David Hine and Nick Percival’s body horror Dark Judges series, Torture Garden; and mutant bounty hunting with Durham Red by Alec Worley, Ben Willsher and Lee Carter.
