2000 AD Releases Limited Edition Judge Dredd Mug!


Oh man, I would love one of these mugs! However, I doubt it would survive the transatlantic trip so well. *sigh*

From the press release:

Don’t be a mug – obey the law!

A top-quality mug lovingly wrapped in classic Judge Dredd artwork from one of the greats of 2000 AD – the latest merchandise from The House of Tharg is perfect for sitting back and sipping your synthi-caff!

This limited edition Mega-City One Justice Department-approved beverage holder features the stunning wraparound cover from Prog 169 in 1980, drawn by legendary Judge Dredd artist Mick McMahon. It shows Dredd leading a charge of Mega City forces in one of the most iconic images from the early years of 2000 AD.

Exclusive to the 2000 AD online shop for just £7.99, this new mug joins a host of 2000 AD merchandise from t-shirts and action figures to badges and sketch books.

The new mug is available from http://shop.2000adonline.com

Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said:
“The gatefold cover showing Dredd in a scene from the post-atomic American civil war is one of the defining images of Dredd from the first few years of 2000 AD so this is the perfect vessel for drinking the synthi-poison of your choice.”

Notes for editors
2000 AD® is Britain’s longest running and most celebrated sci-fi comic, which has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. The 32 page, weekly anthology is a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour.

Giving birth to iconic characters such as Judge Dredd, Halo Jones, Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper, the imaginative blend of hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for more than 30 years – launching the careers of some of the top names in global comics, including Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, Brian Bolland, Steve Dillon, Jock, and Peter Milligan.

2000 AD, its monthly sister publication The Judge Dredd Megazine, and its extensive range of collected graphic novels are available to buy online, from all major magazine retailers across the UK and Europe and from all good comic stores across the US.
