Very excited to see Kingdom vol.4! Does anyone know how many volumes Abnett has planned for Kingdom?  I think I read somewhere that this series has a definitive ending.

I'm hoping to see a third volume of Lawless and a second volume of Jaegir in 2020 as well.

The last series running from prog 2100- 2110 called Alpha and Omega is suppose to be the last series. The ending is leaves a lot of questions open for me. I hope we get another series but that might be wishful thinking.

The last series was definitely not the final one. So said Mr Abnett when I bumped into him recently in Eastbourne.

Yeah was confirmed in the letters page too a few months ago - I needed reminding of that! Chuffed but if it was going to end that would have been a decent ending.

I think we have to salute DAbnett — knowing that the Elson droid is much in demand, it’s a smart move to end the book with a neat wrap-up if you’ve no idea how long it will be before you can do another.

Thanks for the info, glad to hear Kingdom will continue! Hopefully sooner than later...seems I cant get enough Abnett these days.

I read the prog digitally but wait reading certain titles until collected and printed. Kingdom being one of these, so I haven't read Alpha and Omega yet. Waiting is tough...tougher and tough, but I love binge reading it!

Another novel would hold me over just fine in the meantime, as Fiefdom was fantastic too.

Good news (and glad to be wrong). I actually missed the news about Kingdom in the letter pages.

Masters of British Comics Hardcover, 336 pages, 2nd April 2020

This wildly entertaining and educational tome is a journey through the history of British comics - from the birth of the 20th century to the 80s invasion of American comics by the likes of Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and Kevin O’Neil (to name but a few), right up to today’s up-and-coming British art stars and the talents of tomorrow.

 Revealing the extraordinary history of the UK’s prolific comic book industry from the 19th Century to the 21st, this ground breaking volume celebrates the incredible artists who made a huge impact on British comics and would go on to revolutionize the industry on a global scale. Featuring a Who’s Who of talent, including Brian Bolland, Yvonne Hutton, Dave Gibbons, celebrated greats such as Don Lawrence and lost masters like Reg Bunn and Shirley Bellwood. Author and 2000 AD artist David Roach takes us on a journey through time detailing the surprising and fascinating evolution of the art from its humble beginnings to its current world-conquering status.

 Including artwork from a vast number highly-acclaimed artists, carefully scanned from original artwork, Masters of British Comic Art is the definitive study and celebration of a beloved industry.

Unlikely, not like there's a copper in sight.

My first thought was that Dredd is holding his daystick the wrong way around, but I suppose it doesn't matter which way around if he's not holding it by the grip.  He could have just drawn it from the holder on his belt; or just about be ready to slide it back.

He’s just getting ready for simultaneous hang the bear (mutie), take out armed insurgent (daystick to head) while simultaneously taking out armed insurrectionist (with lawgiver). Two seconds later, this is a very different, bloodier scene.
