If you’re not familiar with 2000 AD, you have that in common with many American comic book readers. However, it’s all but certain that you’ve heard about many of the incredible creations to emerge from the British anthology series, including Judge Dredd. 2000 AD has been a staple of science fiction comics since it debuted in 1977. The series continues to highlight both existing legends and some of the hottest new talents in comics today, making it something of an underappreciated treasure in the United States. That’s also why we’re proud to present our readers with an exclusive look at the cover of Prog 2150, a new issue coming this fall perfectly designed for new readers.
The complete cover, at the bottom of this article, was created by artist Joseph Michael Linsner and spotlights Judge Dredd and Judge Anderson. However, the complete issue features a wide array of both familiar and new creations from an impressive collection of talent. You can also find a complete line up for the entire issue below, including titles, creators, and synopses.
