Preview - 2000 AD Winter Special 2014 #1

Despite its reputation as being a pretty bleak representation of our future, Mega-City One still likely celebrates certain holidays and events. Part of that celebration is likely committed to winter and 2000AD is celebrating the season with the 2000 AD Winter Special 2014 #1. The book delves into the darkest recesses of its creators' imaginations for a horror-themed 48-page issue containing complete stories featuring Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Psi-Judge Anderson, Defoe and the debut of new character The Alienist.

It boasts stories by T.C. Eglington, Pat Mills, Guy Adams, Alan Grant, Eddie Robson, Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby, art by Riccardo Burchielli, Leigh Gallagher, Lee Carter, Darren Douglas, Jeff Anderson and Eoin Coveney and letters by Ellie De Ville, Annie Parkhouse and Simon Bowland. The 48-page is available from all good outlets or digitally from the 2000 AD webshop and the 2000 AD iPad app on October 29 with interiors below.
