‘2000AD’ offers peek at Paul Grist’s ‘Demon Nic,’ plus more thrills

The good burghers of 2000AD have sent along a raft of preview images for new thrills they’ll be running in their venerable anthology in 2014:

• Paul Grist’s Demon Nic. Appearing in the creator-owned slot of the Judge Dredd Megazine previously held by critically acclaimed strips asNumbercruncher” and “Ordinary,” this will be Grist’s first work for the 2000AD stable since 1993.

• Set in the Dredd universe, Lawless is by Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade. It’s always great to see new Winslade art, he’s an under-appreciated treasure.

• Another fan favorite returning to the pages of 2000AD in 2014 is Greg Staples. He’ll be teaming up this summer with definitive Dredd writer John Wagner on a multi-part epic restoring the Dark Judges to their central position in the future lawman’s rogues gallery.

• It seems 2014 is the year the 1990s are back in vogue at 2000AD: another returning artist is Nick Percival, who’ll be illustrating the Dredd storyline “Trauma Town,” written by Michael Carroll.
