With the jumping on Prog of 1950, new and returning strips are the name of the game, with the return of Defoe, Brass Sun, Bad Company, Sinister-Dexter, and of course Judge Dredd to take us to the New Year. But before getting to the return of the new, we have some unfinished business with the conclusions of Dreams of Deadworld and The Alienist. Meanwhile in the Megazine things continue trucking along with more Demon Nic, Storm Warning, Lawless, and the conclusion of Judge Dredd – El Maldito. Plus, a look at the hidden classic of Peter Milligin’s FREAKS in the reprint floppy.

Set your thrill receptors on maximum as the bombastic conclusions to Jegeir, Helium, and the latest Judge Dredd epic arrive as we continue our march to Prog 1950.

First up, direct from the pages of the 2000 AD 2014 Winter Special  the supernatural sci-fi stylings of the The Alienist returns and then take a trip back to the home dimensions of Judge Death in  Dreams of Deadworld. Meanwhile over in the Judge Dredd Megazine more western style adventures in Judge Dredd, things take a turn for the religious in Lawless, Mercy gets some help for Demon Nic, and witness the half-life of a ghost in Storm Warning. All that and the epic cliffhanger conclusion to Lobster Random!
