With Free Comic Book Day this Saturday, May 5th I am keen to see what 2000AD have got in store for younger readers as it releases 2000AD Regened clearly aimed at younger readers. And, why not? The UK has always had a relatively healthy comic book market more skewed at kids with weekly comics like The Beano and the mail order only The Phoenix offering up a variety of strips featuring all kinds of genres. Well, with an eye on trying to bring new readers into comics, I dare say, 2000AD offer us the return of D.R. and Quinch, but also a young cadet Dredd, still at the academy and learning the ropes.
Here’s a preview of this weekend’s offering form the good people at Rebellion, the home of 2000AD.
