2018 Graphic Novels From 2000AD Include Full-Color Halo Jones, Dredd Pocket Editions, And More

by Hannah Means Shannon

2000AD have announced their plans for graphic novel publication in 2018, and they start with a new color version of Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s classic, Halo Jones colored by Barbara Nosenzo.

Also on the slate are “pocket-sized” editions of Judge Dredd classics in color, and stand alone OGNs.

In May and August we can expect Dredd to team up with Batman in the classic Judgement on Gotham while a former Mega-City space marine returns home to find only despair and revenge in Mandroid.

The Dark Judges get two collections in 2018, including October’s Dominion by John Wagner and Nick Percival.

Collected in December, we’ll see Karl Urban’s version of Dredd confronted with his strangest and most challenging case yet in The Dead World by Arthur Wyatt, Alex De Campi, and Henry Flint.

Collections of the best of the 2000 AD archive will be continuing in 2018 with M.A.C.H.1, and the first volume of Future Shocks.

Hope is also coming to collection in November as an “atmospheric noir thriller” for fans of Hellblazer, featuring a magic-wielding private eye.

In October, Alan Grant and Arthur Ranson’s Mazeworld will also be republished in a larger format Collector’s Edition.
