Comic Book Review: Battle Special (2020)

The Battle special – or, as it seems to be called on the cover, the Battle ‘of Britain’ Special – is the latest in Rebellion’s series of specials to revive classic British comics.

Comic Book Review: Judge Dredd Megazine #424

2000AD’s sister title, the Judge Dredd Megazine, reaches an incredible milestone this month with the release of issue 424, which celebrates the publication’s 30th anniversary.

Comic Book Review: Smash! 2020 Special

I’ve already taken a look at most of the 2020 Specials that have been released by 2000AD publisher Rebellion so far – so it was only a matter of time before I reached Smash! It’s a lot wackier and irreverent in tone to comics such as Action (which got its own Special this year) or 2000AD itself (even though neither […]
