From the deepest, darkest recesses of the Nerve Centre vaults, the eerie alien editor of 2000 AD known as the Mighty Tharg presents some of the creepiest, kookiest tales to terrify this Halloween.

IN PRINT NO-ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM!

Ever wondered what makes the Wolfman wail, or the Undead to jump back into their graves? Here in this masterpiece of the macabre, the all-powerful alien editor of 2000 AD, Tharg the Mighty, presents a selection of stories that are so scary, they should come with a health warning!

This spine-tingling treat features the artistic talents of ‘Fearsome’ Frazer Irving, ‘Gruesome’ Greg Staples and ‘Cadaverous’ Chris Weston, with stories from the paranoiapacked minds of ‘Menacing’ Mark Millar, ‘Evil’ Al Ewing and ‘Grizzly’ Gordon Rennie, amongst others.

Frazer Irving is without question one of 2000 AD’s brightest new stars. His distinctive style, both on co-created strips like A Love Like Blood, Necronauts and Storming Heaven, as well as on Judge Dredd, Judge Death, Future Shocks, Terror Tales, Tharg the Mighty, The Scarlet Apocrypha and Sinister Dexter, have quickly brought him to the attention of the US industry. Irving recently completed both Klarion the Witch-boy for DC Comics and Iron Man: Inevitable for Marvel comics. Amongst other things he is currently working on Gutsville with Simon Spurrier, published by Image Comics.

Kevin O’Neill is a 2000 AD legend. From working as an art assistant on the very first prog, he quickly became involved in the creative side of the comic, co-creating classics like A.B.C. Warriors, Bonjo From Beyond The Stars, Metalzoic and Nemesis the Warlock. O’Neill has also written for the comic on strips including Dash Decent, Future Shocks, One-Offs, Tharg the Mighty, and has illustrated Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, M.A.C.H. 0, One-Offs, Ro-Busters, Ro-Jaws’ Robo-Tales, Tharg the Mighty and Torquemada. Outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, O’Neill was briefly notorious as the only artist ever to have his work rejected wholesale by the Comics Code Authority! Happily, his notoriety quickly became fame and acclaim, as his work on strips like Marshal Law and most recently The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen have raised him to a very high profile. O’Neill’s other work includes Green Lantern and Batman.

Cam Kennedy is another hugely popular 2000 AD artist, having illustrated many Judge Dredd strips and co-created luckless wannabe creator Kenny Who? and the Taxidermist. A key early Rogue Trooper artist, he has also drawn Batman/Judge Dredd: Vendetta in Gotham, Judge Dredd, Tharg the Mighty, Tharg’s Future Shocks, and The V.C.’s. His extracurricular work includes Axel Pressbutton, Batman, Lobo, Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Star Wars.
