Last week, I talked about Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) being held this past Saturday, May 7. I managed to get to three different stores on that day, and I noticed a few things I wanted to talk about. Also, friends attended other locations, and they also gave me things to talk about as well!
There is currently a petition going around asking for a Dredd television series to be made by someone. The petition may have received a bump in urgency this morning as 2000AD is also backing the request from fans.
2000 AD and ComixTribe have both announced they will not participate in Free Comic Book Day 2016.
2000 AD’s sister comic, Judge Dredd Megazine, celebrates its 25th anniversary this Wednesday – with a special cover by artist Barry Kitson.
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast: We learn the origin of Judge Dredd in Judge Dredd: Origins! Plus, shake-ups at Marvel and DC, Toil and Trouble #1, Hank Johnson, Agent of Hydra #1, ECOS #1, and more!
2000 AD has announced that Judge Death, Judge mortis, Judge Fire, and Judge Fear are all getting their own series in Dreams of Deadworld on September 2, 2015.
If you are a fan of Judge Dredd, you probably already know that in addition to the comics, Dredd of the ’90s also had a series of novels published through Virgin Books. Those books have been out of print for a long time, but have recently returned and are available now on Amazon.
