all about those characters behind the masks! Everything and more that you need to know about super heroes and those villains that keep them on their toes!

Lost in the mists of time, home-grown British superheroes once entertained and enthralled millions of kids. Now, the likes of Adam Eterno, Blake Edmonds, Thunderbolt the Avenger, and The Leopard from Lime Street are coming back to make summer 2018 blazing hot!

The Vigilant will be a special one-shot title this August which resurrects classic heroes from the Fleetway/IPC comics of the 1970s – reborn and updated for a new generation to enjoy!

Written by Simon Furman (Transformers) with art by Simon Coleby (Jaegir, Judge Dredd) and other guest creators, when the evil forces of Von Hoffman and Dr Mesmer team up and pluck the immortal Adam Eterno from the winds of time, all of reality is under threat!

Only The Vigilant – a mighty team composed of super-beings, warlocks, warriors and monsters – stand between civilisation and total chaos! Join The Leopard from Lime Street, Steel Commando, Dr. Sin, Pete’s Pocket Army, Blake Edmonds, Yāo and Thunderbolt the Avenger on their premiere adventure!

Superheroes are something 2000 AD hasn’t really done in the past (with a couple of exceptions) – but this is the beginning of what we’re dubbing the ‘Rebellion-verse’, an interconnected world of superheroes but with a very British ethos and outlook.

Available from newsagents in the UK on 15th August, The Vigilant will also be available to order from comic book stores through Diamond Distribution in the April edition of Previews.

This is a brief (one-sided) conversation about Watchmen. I promise, I tried to be brief, but sometimes it's hard. I talk about the characters, the ins and outs, the backstory, world building and influences. This is not a simple summary of the plot of Watchmen. Enjoy!
