The Eagle has landed on subscribers' doormats this morning, but for the rest of us, this is still in the future. Even though it's set in the past.

Scarlet Traces vibes from new Defoe artist SK Moore:

I’m not really into Defoe, although it is one I want to re-read from the start, to see if it gels. That opening page looks excellent though. (No Prog here, alas. Seems it’s a Monday thing now.)

However - he does have some form of 'name' draw for the US readers, similarly to Mike Allred & George Perez, both of whom have delivered covers for TMO in recent years.

And the great recent-ish covers by David Aja and Chris Burnham too. A shrewd tactic deployed by TMO.


Presumably it's working, otherwise TMO wouldn't keep doing it.  As much as I like some artists, I can't imagine buying a copy of $insert-DC/Marvel-title-here just because the cover is by $2000AD-artist.

I imagine it gets them a bit of coverage on comics websites etc, which lets people know the prog exists. Dredd might be moderately well known outside of the UK but 2000AD doesn't have the same level of awareness.

Never sure where to put this. The cover date will be ths year but I always count it as the start of next year's stories. Anyway, Tharg has exclusively revealed the contents of his bulging Christmas sack.

Prog 2162
  • The Zaucer of Zilk: A Zaucerful of Secrets by Peter Hogan and Brendan McCarthy. The follow-up to 2012's phantasmagoric first series by Al Ewing and McCarthy, as an old enemy of the wand-wielding Zaucer comes looking for revenge
  • Proteus Vex: Another Dawn by Michael Carroll and Henry Flint. A brand-new SF spy series set in an alien galaxy;
  • Feral & Foe. Kingdom creators Dan Abnett and Richard Elson reunite on a new fantasy saga,  as a pair of creatures that would normally be hunted down by the humans are tasked with targeting their own kind;
  • Graduation Day by Gordon Rennie and Tiernen Trevallion; a young man takes a step into a wider world.
  • Plus Dredd, Brink and probably a surprise
Intrigued by the Rennie/Trevallion story. Maybe an epilogue or spin-off from Absalom?

Meanwhile, Lawless, Devlin Waugh and Blunt are all back in the Christmas Meg.
We never really die.

If prog 2162 is the xmas prog then it implies we will have 51 progs this year and not the normal 50. Great stuff

How old would the child of Ravne and Demon Jenny be? Could be another Cabs story?

Any release date set for this yet? It's October 1st tomorrow, yet it isn't listed on Comic Hub.

Some great artists in that line-up by the way.
