Creator Of 2000AD Brings Us A New, Dark Satire, American Reaper

It’s been around for a while, but it’s finally seeing publication as a comic.

Pat Mills, creator of 2000AD and developer of Judge Dredd has teamed with artist Clint Langley for a new monthly series to run in Judge Dredd Megazine.

American Reaper starts from  October 12th, and it’s a sci-fi police procedural with future cops taking down illegal identity transplanters, letting the elderly digitally possess the bodies of the young, amid calls for those on Death Row to donate their bodies to the cause.

The comic has already been optioned as a movie by Xingu Films, who made Moon.

Here’s a fake ad from the series, a public announcement explaining the new Stop And Scan laws, as well as demonstrating downloadable clothes.
