Been keeping my eyes peeled for this for sometime and finally we have a listing for the 45 Years of 2000AD book that was announced sometime back.
Not able to preorder yet, but there's some preview images that promises it to be something very special!!!
https://www.amazon.co.uk/45-Years-2000-Ad-Anniversary/dp/1786185717/ref=mp_s_a_1_1

They're 'avin' a larf with the Amazon description though (emphasis mine):
Quote
Kevin O'Neill is a 2000 AD legend. From working as an art assistant on the very first prog, he quickly became involved in the creative side of the comic, co-creating classics like A.B.C. Warriors, Bonjo From Beyond The Stars, Metalzoic and Nemesis the Warlock.

What the hell is Bonjo From Beyond The Stars?
Still, he did co-create it, so it's relevant I guess.
Any road up, the book is now up for pre-order at a rather reasonable £25!!!
Definitely on the Xmas list!

The upcoming epic from John Wagner will be collected and it looks like it will also contains stories from his latest stuff from the prog. "Removal Man" art by Colin MacNeil and "Now that's what I call Justice" art by John Higgins.

Cover for The Citadel:


Down the Tubes has some more detail on the set up of the story.

Cheers for the link, I'll have to dig out the old Progs as I can't recall anything about it.
Also, I edited my initial comment, as it seemed a bit mean.

It's mainly a quarter-page strip in the Nerve Centre but expands to a full page in a couple of progs.

What is coming to the prog and meg early next year (and people wondered what Henry Flint was doing):

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Absolutely fascinating that its in the floppies - Tharg really is experimenting. I guess (???) its a bit like the way that's been used to prelaunch the Encyclopedia?

Of course the most exciting news if LAWLESS. That always makes me happy.

Brink Book Five - Paperback, 128 pages, 16th August 2022
 
"The fifth volume of the best-selling sci-fi detective series - Agent Brinkmann's death is investigated by a journalist who uncovers more than he initially suspected.

The year is 2096 and Earth has been reduced to an uninhabited wasteland. What was left of humanity was evacuated into overpopulated space stations, or 'Habitats'.

Nolan Maslow, a journalist working for The Herald, is investigating the death of HSD agent Brinkmann and the sect that has infiltrated the maintenance workers of Ludmilla Habitat. He will find out that even his most outrageous theories cannot encompass what is actually happening behind the scenes of the habitat.

Taking place during the events of Brink Book One, this graphic novel adds extra layers to the story of Bridget Kurtis and her ongoing fight against the forces which are haunting the remains of humanity and driving them to madness."

45 Years of 2000 Ad - The Best of Gerry Finley-Day
- Hardback, 244 pages, 16th August 2022

"Classic 2000 AD strips from the 'Galaxy's Greatest' ideas man!

From Tammy to the Eagle, Gerry Finley-Day was one of the most prolific comic book writers throughout the 1970s and 80s.

His work for 2000 AD in particular was extraordinary and included such beloved strips as future war G.I. Rogue Trooper, the 'Great escape' in space titled Harry 20 on the High Rock, the Star Wars inspired V.C.'s and a gritty 1970s take on the iconic Eagle character Dan Dare.

This collection contains some of Gerry's greatest work on these strips and more. Tight plots, non-stop action and plenty of thrills are here in abundance and highlight why 2000 AD became the stand out comic title in Britain."

This is an absolute must, very exciting! Love that it's an oversized hardback too.

Some great looking stuff coming out. Rebellion are doing a big job on the 45th and really seem to be getting some great stuff out to celebrate. Look like 2022 will be a fun year.
