There is no doubt that one of our greatest comic book export has to be Judge Dredd, and this September 7th 2019 Rebellion and 2000AD are celebrating this iconic character with a Day of Dredd, with comic book stores and libraries encouraged to join in the party. Indeed, comic book shops and libraries who send in evidence of their Day of Dredd displays will receive care-packages from 2000AD alongside fans who are encouraged to participate by sharing their own personal memories of first encountering Dredd himself, or their favourite characters from his vast universe of stories using the hashtag #DAYOFDREDD.
The most imaginative winner will be awarded Day of Dredd Golden Eagle certificate and receive a pirate’s treasure chest worth of complimentary 2000AD goodies including trade paperbacks, toys and merchandising rarities.
Ahead of that on September 5th 2000AD will also be publishing Judge Dredd: The Small House by Rob Williams and Henry Flint – the critically acclaimed and lauded thriller that is already being hailed as one of the classic Judge Dredd stories, with Mark Millar calling it: “one of the best runs ever”. It’s a book I’ve been looking forward to grabbing myself when I heard it was planned to be published this year, so I’m happy to hear it’ll be out this September.
