The future sounds interesting...

Leigh S:
The watcher has cast his astral self into the future (and not in any way read Previews), to bring the following predictions....


Bad Company series one to be reprinted in the Meg, starting either issue 8 or 9.  There is also a very interesting sounding multi-part feature about the secret history of 2000AD - is this why Rebellion were trying to contact the writers of the Mega History I wonder?

Over in 2000AD (1285-1288) we have Dredd in 'Escape from Atlantis', while Sinister Dexter travel to Greater Britain, and Dante and Telguuth return

Nope, we were considering producing an updated anniversary edition. Unfortunately, the original creators were nowhere to be seen, so that has been back-burnered for now.

2000AD Online:
You'll have excuse someone who has strayed from the fold but why is the Megazine reprinting so much stuff these days? And are royalties being paid? And will the Watcher turn out to have been the Doctor all along?

No, completely separate project -- this was the first thing I commissioned when I came on board. In the first part, you'll be able to see a truckload of pages from the original 2000 AD dummy -- unused artwork from Dan Dare, Harlem Heroes, MACH 1, The Visible Man and Shako!, plus Invasion! with Russians, not Volgans. It's all terribly exciting.

With the handover, a few meaningful details of upcoming issues didn't make various of the trade mag deadlines, so (if anyone's interested), 4.9 also features a brutally funny 15-page Dredd by John Wagner and Peter Doherty called 'Dead Lost', the start of a new Aztec-flavoured Missionary Man 5-parter by Gordon Rennie and John Ridgway, the first chunk of Bad Company and the penultimate episode of Wardog. Pending contracts and other stuff, there'll be something new in the Beyond 2000 slot from 4.10; a new series with a very different take on an established 2000 favourite from 4.11; ... and we plan to add a fourth new strip to the line-up in the early summer. Hope you enjoy.

Hello, everyone, by the way. Can't promise to drop in every day, but I am lurking ...
