2000 AD didn’t get into Free Comic Book Day this year (aside from their Funny Pages title reprinting old IPC humor strips) but, true to form, that doesn’t mean they won’t gatecrash the party…
In order to capitalize on the popularity of their previous FCBD titles, Rebellion is publishing a 99 pence/99 cent original one-shot out the Wednesday before Free Comic Book Day in May 2019–for the same time as Free Comic Book Day in May 2019 – and we’ve got an exclusive preview of what’s in store.
The 2000AD Villains Takeover Special will contain original work by Rob Williams (Suicide Squad) Pat Mills (Marshal Law), Swedish concept artist Henrik Sahlstrom, Kyle Hotz (Lucifer), Kael Ngu (Justice League), Henry Flint (Judge Dredd) and Chris Weston (The Filth).
In time for Free Comic Book Day the bad guys take over the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic with a nefarious new special full of criminal capers and villainous ventures – the 2000 AD Villains Takeover! At the low, low price point of 99 cents, this is the ideal shelf-stuffer to tempt roguish readers into the world of 2000 AD!
In this improper issue we have the very best forbidden felons and outlandish outlaws – the lawman of the future faces a familiar rictus grin in JUDGE DEATH: THE JUDGE WHO LAUGHS by Rob Williams and Henrik Sahlstrom; there’s fiendish fantasy with LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG: LORD OF THE HUNT by Pat Mills and Kyle Hotz; there’s chem-wreathed criminality in the world of Rogue Trooper in BRASS AND BLAND: THE PROFESSIONALS by Karl Stock and Kael Ngu; there’s the malefactory mutant-bountyhunters-turned-bad-guys, The Stix, from Strontium Dog in STIX: SLEEPING DOGS LIE by Matt Smith and Chris Weston; and all rounded off by TERROR TALE: LAST OF THE HELLPHIBIANS by that master of the mendacious Henry Flint!
