Well while I'm going to be all over this like a sticky rash - I mean what a glorious creative team - I do have to say... and don't run me out of town here... I started to watch Hawk the Slayer the other day on noticing it was on telly. I didn't get past the first 20 minutes... probably less. It was utter tosh!

Not in the prog, but a stand alone US format series, which will be reprinted in the floppy with the Meg.

Can not wait

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

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.

No surprises there. Ennis has been long touting his enthusiasm for writing the character.

yeah, the movie hasn't aged well, to be honest it was ropey all those years ago :)

is this actually running in the pages of 2000AD, or in a separate publication?

I am looking forward to it.

It will run as a separate publication and the first episode will be published as a floppy in meg 440 (Jan 2022)

Is only the first issue in the Meg or is the whole thing going to be there?
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Each issue will be bagged with monthly issues of Judge Dredd The Megazine from January 2022 onwards.

So yes it looks like it will make the megazine a must get next year and do not forget Lawless will be in it as well

The new series is starting in the Christmas Meg, I believe.
