www.clickwheel.net, the distributor of online comic books for Apple iPhone and iPod and the exclusive distributor for the sci-fi comic 2000 AD, has announced it will be expanding its backlist in the lead-up to the main 2000 AD digital download service launch later this year.

Clickwheel and 2000 AD publishers Rebellion have agreed to include archive material from 2007 in addition to the weekly 2000 AD comic downloads, which began in December 2007.

Will Simons, Creative Director of Clickwheel said: â??The plans Clickwheel and Rebellion have for the 2000 AD download service are wide-ranging and incredibly exciting. They began with the 2000 AD Christmas special in December and weâ??re now implementing the first in a series of archive content.â??

Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director of Rebellion added: â??As the download service was designed for existing overseas 2000 AD readers and latent fans, the first archive will feature every issue from 2007 to give fans access not just to copies they havenâ??t read but also overall storylines over a number of issues.â??

Will concludes: â??2008 promises to be an exciting year for Clickwheel and 2000 AD. We have offered the latest copies of 2000 AD since December and with the 2007 archive in place, characters and storylines within the comic can be fully explored and enjoyed.â??

The archive goes live Friday 15th February 2008. Visit www.clickwheel.net for more details.

News / Dredd vs Aliens statue
« on: 12 February, 2008, 11:15:34 AM »
In a battle that threatened to bring Mega-City One to its knees, future lawman Judge Dredd faced off against Fox Film's Alien in 2003's stunning comic-book crossover Incubus, written by John Wagner and Andy Diggle and illustrated by Henry Flint.

First4Figures and Rebellion are proud to present a truly unique sculptural treatment inspired by the story. An interpretation of Flint's opening illustration, this limited-edition collectible is rife with special features - the otherworldly skull of the alien is visible through a blackened translucent surface, creating an eerily striking effect; a hidden lighting element in the base creates an otherworldly glow; and the alien eggs surrounding the base have been treated with unusual resins to create a viscous pool as face-huggers slowly emerge.

The fully hand-painted statue is minutely detailed, stands 11.5" tall and comes securely packaged in deluxe full-colour packaging. Includes Certificate of Authenticity. Strictly limited to 1,000 numbered statues for worldwide distribution.

The Dredd/Aliens statue will available to buy from the 2000ADonline shop (Tharg's Newsround

News / 2000 AD Goes Global â?? One week and countingâ?¦
« on: 12 December, 2007, 03:07:20 PM »
I felt that a gentle reminder to all of our overseas readers was in order, bearing in mind the mild festive panic engulfing the world to purchase gifts, wrapping paper and the like.

Wednesday 19th December 2007 is the date when 2000 AD leaps into the future of global comic-book enjoyment when it becomes the first sci-fi comic in the world to be available weekly in both print and online versions. The lucky readers in the UK have long had their Thrill-Power hit within their printed prog every week without fail, but it is you, our friends across the world, who have had to endure higher shipping costs and a longer wait. Well, no more.

In just seven daysâ?? time, you will be able to download the Galaxyâ??s Greatest Comic direct to your computer just one week after the printed version has hit UK stores, and being a download itâ??ll be quicker, more topical, more adaptable (youâ??ll even be able to view it on your Apple iPod) and, best of all, considerably cheaper. However, if you still enjoy the feel of a warm prog in your hands, you will still be able to receive the printed version as normal. It just wonâ??t be as quick and easy.

Join us in the latest step towards global domination. Next Wednesday, go to www.clickwheel.net or follow the links to the download page from www.2000ADonline.com and embrace the future!
