I wouldn't worry. If they were going to kill off Dredd it would have to be done by John and Carlos, probably in a landmark prog or something.

this issue will feature the first sequential comics work by Bolland for 2000 AD since 1987
Any ideas what this may be?  A second Dredd tale, after the Ezquerra one?  I'm struggling to think of anything other than an early Future-Shock and Walter the Wobot, non-Dredd wise, in the pages of 2000AD...

There's always talk of that Fatties story that he asked John Wagner to write for him (or some such) but my guess it will be a page in some sort of Tharg B'day celebration story. If it was anything more I'd think (I'm so often wrong about these things!) that we'd have more detail here.

Plus, interlude pages from Brian Bolland, Mick McMahon, Dave Gibbons, Robin Smith, and more.

I'm hoping these interlude pages will be something along the lines of the monumental Tharg's Head Revisited, or even the fun, if not quite so memorable,  A Night 2 Remember.

Yeah that's exactly the type of thing I meant.

They could be star scans, reminiscences or congratulatory messages.

I hate to bring the tone of the thread down but.. is there going to be two Prog 2000s now? And two Prog 2001s, 2002s, and so on?

It does say 'Issue' on the Fabry cover, not 'Prog'* - maybe that's the solution.

*Although that has quite rightly been changed from 'birthday' in the pencil sketch.

I thought the numbering malarkey had been sorted.
This is Prog no 2000, a sequential continuation of earlier progs.
The previous Prog 2000 is simply a proper noun and the number just part of the name.
Clear as dayto me! 😉

Comicvine has solved this issue somewhat by losting progs 2000 and onwards as a seperate annual series. Works somewhat.

This seems appropriate, given that the end-of-year progs replaces the old annuals and yearbooks.

Yet problematic given that they also incorporate elements of ongoing stories.

Honestly compared to DC's and Marvel's impossibly labyrinthian back catalogue of cross branching titles, 2000AD's chronology is as easy to follow as ABC.

As opposed to the ABC Warriors who Pat seems to be trying to make as convoluted as he can.
