2000 AD LAUNCHES NEW DIGITAL FIRST COLLECTIONS
Two of 2000 AD's most popular strips from the past 13 years have been collected in their entirety for the first time. The Ten-Seconders and Caballistics Inc are each getting massive digital collections available from 2000 AD's webshop and Apple and Android apps. While both series have been collected in print before, this is the first time that the finales of both tales will be included.
Ben Smith, head of comics and books for Rebellion Publishing, said: “Finding new ways to share the vast 2000 AD back catalogue has been one of the greatest benefits to developing and maintaining our comics app and web platform. Having the freedom to experiment and add to the burgeoning publishing list with these digital first editions means we can react to reader demand and share ever more from the archives.”
The Ten-Seconders is set in a world where humanity was destroyed by a race of super-powered beings who now rule the world as gods. That's certainly something we could see happening in most of the Big Two comics today, huh? Banding against them are a rag-tag group of survivors called “The Ten-Seconders” in reference to their average life span in battle. Written by Rob Williams and illustrated by Ben Oliver, Mark Harrison, Dom Reardon, Shaun Thomas, Edmund Bagwell, and Ben Willsher, the digital edition clocks in at 217 pages and includes the previously uncollected epic series finale Godsend.
Caballistics Inc from Gordon Rennie and Dom Reardon mixes geek culture with Forteana and gothic horror. Department Q, set up to defeat the Nazis in occult warfare is privatized when it's bought by reclusive billionaire rock star Ethan Kostabi. It's rebranded as Caballistics Inc. Now the team must not only face the forces of the supernatural, but also the dark secrets at the very heart of their organization. This digital collection has a massive 345 page count and includes the never-before-reprinted last stories, Ashes and The Nativity.
