That's one's been on the cards for a while now... We've got four pages of thread about it!


This is the first that we have heard  of the inclusion of Rojaws.

Not if you bought the new Ro-Busters collection late last year - Pat gives it all away in the intro. Those are great for spoilers - Pat revealed Tubal's identity as Happy Shrapnel in an intro, about three years before it actually happened in the strip!

Pat has a long history of doing this - I'm sure there's a Titan collection of Nemesis the Warlock where Pat mentions plot details that will eventually show up over a decade later in Nemesis Bk X!

Doh, beaten to the punch!

Well done, eamonn.  I'm going to post the blurb though!

Judging by the cover, this one contains "Dan Dare and the Tape Worm."

20 Oct 2016 - Judge Dredd: Mega-City Zero Volume 2
03 Nov 2016 - Dan Dare - The 2000 AD Years Vol. 2 (Hardcover)         

Dan Dare - The 2000 AD Years Vol. 2 (Hardcover)
 


The moon's Mekon's a balloon!

Blurb:
"Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future is a British icon. He was created by Frank Hampson in 1950, and first appeared in the Eagle comic where he was an instant hit with the British public. Almost a decade after the original series had ended, Dan Dare was resurrected in the pages of a brand new sci-fi comic for boys – 2000 AD! In this volume: Dan Dare and the crew of the Eagle One continue their journey through deep, uncharted space, where they encounter a host of evil alien tyrants, including dare’s arch-nemesis the Mekon! This volume of Dan Dare concludes the iconic British hero’s adventures within the pages of 2000 AD."

Interesting use of the word 'concludes' there - we don't "dare" hope for a fully wrapped-up finish when we know it just means "all we did, there ain't no more".


Judge Dredd: Mega-City Zero Volume 2



Blurb:
"Dredd finds himself the only Judge in a Mega-City One that he barely recognises. Joined by a trio of feral girls, he has taken on his most challenging case yet: to uncover what happened to the city he has sworn to serve and protect. Collects issues no. 5-8."

Warning - dog wearing a Judge helmet.  And how did that tortoise climb up on Dredd's shoulder?

Looks like the Thrill-Power Overload release is billed as "revised, updated and expanded" on Amazon in the US.  It also looks like Judge Dredd: Every Empire Falls/Henry Flint and Michael Carroll is set for February 2017 and Judge Dredd: The Cape and Cowl Crimes is set for release in April 2017 per listings on US Amazon.
