201208061150 2000 AD gets its own day and date app
Add the UK’s 2000 AD—home of Judge Dredd—to the list of publishers going day and date. They’re even getting their own app, via the Apple Newsstand, which is offering a free introductory 69-page sampler with pages from Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos, Zombo, and Ichabod Azrael.

Subscribers get up to a 24% discount and a selection of free back issues. Single issues are $2.99/£1.99.

2000 AD was no stranger to digital—they already sell issues in DRM-free PDF and CBZ formats via their online shop.

“Making 2000 AD as accessible as possible is something we’ve been working towards for some time,” said Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD. “For the first time we can offer easy, quick digital subscriptions so that readers can download the latest issue with a single push of a button.

“If you’ve ever had trouble getting hold of the latest 2000 AD, don’t like waiting for the physical Prog to reach your shores, or you just want the ease of having digital copies then our new app is ideal.

“With the DREDD 3D film coming in September and amazing storylines from some of the top talent in the industry, there’s never been a better time to subscribe to 2000 AD.”

  1. Meanwhile the print copies are $5.25, and they can’t even get them to us 52 weeks of the year — recently they skipped on shipping us #1783, 1787, and 1788. “oops”

    Who is this “Matt Smith”? Has he usurped the Mighty Tharg as the editor of the galaxy’s greatest comic?

  3. Brian – sorry to hear you’ve not been getting a regular service but all our issues ship from the UK regularly. We do all we can to ensure our suppliers have everything they need to deliver to fans, but whenever we do hear of a problem we raise it with them. It would also be really useful if your retailer could get in touch with them to highlight the issue.

    Cheers

    Mike @ 2000 AD
