Out This Week: The 2000 AD Encyclopedia
It's been featured in the issues of Judge Dredd Megazine, but this week you can get The 2000 AD Encyclopedia from Rebellion.
For the first time, the 2000 AD Encyclopedia celebrates 45 years of cutting edge sci-fi, biting dystopian satire and glorious fantasy by giving readers chapter and verse on this enthralling universe of Thrills, detailing the characters and stories that have helped make 2000 AD a groundbreaking comic book and major cultural force.
With jaw-dropping illustrations by some of the world’s top artists alongside detailed profiles on the stories and characters from the pages of this legendary comic, from the luckless Aaron A. Aardvark of Judge Dredd to the weaponised (but very polite) undead crusader Zombo.
Since its creation in 1977, 2000 AD has been a powerhouse of British comics - consistently pushing at the boundaries of what comic books can achieve with series such as Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Halo Jones, Strontium Dog, Nikolai Dante, Brink, and hundreds of others.
Discover fascinating facts about the acclaimed art and script droids behind 2000 AD’s success, including industry legends such as John Wagner, Alan Grant, Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, Jock, Brian Bolland, Mick McMahon, Carlos Ezquerra and many more.
With a foreword by 2000 AD’s longest-serving editor, Matt Smith, this hardcover collection is indispensable for all dedicated Squaxx Dek Thargo and an essential addition to any comic fan’s book shelf.
