2000 AD 40th Anniversary Graphic Novel List


Our friends at 2000 AD have just announced their graphic novel list 2017 which is the publication’s 40th anniversary year!

Highlights of 2017 include the first ever collection of Alan McKenzie and John Ridgeway’s The Journal of Luke Kirby – the boy wizard character that predated Harry Potter – as well as strong new characters such as Meta Lawson in Lawless: Welcome to Badrock, Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade’s fan favourite series about an off-world Judge doing things her own way with frontier justice.

Kek-W and legendary comics artist John Burns blaze through 10,000 years of history and combine a robotic knight, an ancient order of warriors, a young woman searching for the legacy of her father, and giant time-travelling worms in The Order.

John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Mick McMahon’s bleak post-apocalyptic The Last American returns to print for the first time in over a decade in April; and a brand new collection of Ian Edginton and D’Israeli’s Scarlet Traces kicks off both the year and the ongoing saga about the shocking aftermath of HG Wells’ War of the Worlds.

Fans of Britain’s biggest comics export, Judge Dredd, won’t be disappointed either, with Michael Carroll’s modern epic Every Empire Falls in January and new volumes of the bestselling Judge Dredd: The Complete Cases Files series in August and November, along with early cases from the life of psychic cop Judge Anderson in Alan Grant, Carlos Ezquerra, and Steve Yeowell’s Cadet Anderson: Teenage Kyx.

Being collected for the first time on both sides of the Atlantic in July is the latest comic based on the world of the 2012 movie DREDD, with Judge Anderson stepping into the limelight in Anderson: The Deep End by Alec Worley and Paul Davidson.

Most of 2017’s list will be available simultaneously in the UK, Ireland, and North America, but this year sees three dedicated Dredd titles for the US and Canadian market – Judge Dredd Case Files 13 and 14, and Judge Dredd: The Cape and Cowl Crimes, which collects the lawman’s deadly encounters with some of the most bizarre superpowered criminals you’ll ever meet!

2000 AD’s graphic novels are available to buy from all good book and comic book shops, as well as through 2000adonline.com, Amazon, and other online retailers. Digital copies can be purchased from the 2000 AD webshop as well as the 2000 AD apps for Apple, Android, and Windows 10 devices.
