2000 AD 2017 Graphic Novels

As 2000 AD celebrates its 40th birthday in February this year, a slate of graphic novel releases are coming out that showcase some of the breadth and depth of four decades worth of ground-breaking and innovative comics. It's a good year to be a 2000 AD fan!

With so much to look forward to, it's tough to know where to start. There's the first ever collection of Alan McKenzie and John Ridgeway's The Journal of Luke Kirby - the boy wizard character that predated Harry Potter. Then there's the bleak post-apocalyptic The Last American - from John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Mick McMahon - returning to print for the first time in over a decade in April.

There's also a brand new collection of Ian Edginton and D'Israeli's Scarlet Traces, which kicks off the year continuing the saga about the shocking aftermath of HG Wells' War of the Worlds.

Then there's the Dredd ones, with Michael Carroll's modern epic Every Empire Falls in January and new volumes of the bestselling Judge Dredd: The Complete Cases Files series in August and November, along with early cases from the life of psychic cop Judge Anderson in Alan Grant, Carlos Ezquerra, and Steve Yeowell's Cadet Anderson: Teenage Kyx.

What a time to be alive. Check out the full listings below and let us know what you're looking forward to the most from the list in the comments below.
