2000 AD Prog 2321 is out this week, featuring a brand-new case for Judge Dredd from Ken Niemand and former Sláine artist Leonardo Manco, as Succession sees corporate bloodletting reach typically Mega-City maniacal levels.

Elsewhere, Joe Pineapples and Ro-Jaws are falling through space in the penultimate part of Tin Man, Cyd makes a pilgrimage to question the Truth Trumpet of Celestial Knowledge, Midnight Indicating Shame leads her rebellion in Proteus Vex, and The Order crash through the chrono-streams!

Plus there's an absolutely stunning Dredd cover from Jock. Rebellion recently started releasing the Prog cover art as prints, so this will be one to look out for.

Mega-City One, 2145 AD. Home to over 200 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, where tensions run a constant knife-edge.

Former war-droids, the ABC Warriors were reassigned to bring peace to the frontier planet of Mars. Comprising Hammerstein, Deadlock, Blackblood, Steelhorn, Mongrol and Happy Shrapnel, the Mek-Nifcent Seven’s sharpshooter was Joe Pineapples, a robot with more secrets than most. Now he and sewer-droid Ro-Jaws are at the other end of the universe — Joe n’ Ro, lost in space, out of gas, out of love n’ outta luck!
