Revisit the past with 2000 AD Origins –
Episode 1 Free To Download From 1st May 2009

Clickwheel.net, the world’s leading digital comic provider, has announced that it will be launching a series of exclusive digital comics with 2000 AD.

Available only from Clickwheel.net, 2000 AD Origins features the very first stories from Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Rogue Trooper and a myriad of characters and stories from throughout the comic’s 32-year history.

Will Simons, Creative Director of Clickwheel said, “2000 AD has excited and shocked our readership in equal measure since they joined us in 2007. We’re continually adding to the 2000 AD archive, but with over 30 years of content, this is not something you cannot do fast! To that end, we’ve worked closely with Tharg and the 2000 AD team to develop a series of character introductions so that new readers can access, for example, the first stories of Judge Dredd and see where the character started from, his motivations and how he’s changed over the years.”

Keith Richardson, Marketing and PR Manager for 2000 AD said, “For many comic fans in the US and abroad, Clickwheel has provided their first taste of the 2000 AD universe. We wanted new readers to have the opportunity to access the beginnings of 2000 AD’s top characters so that their newer adventures are enjoyed in greater context. Clickwheel have developed a fantastic platform for the digital versions of 2000 AD and long may it continue!”

The first, free instalment of the 2000 AD Origins digital comic will be available from 1st May only on Clickwheel.net.  Subsequent monthly instalments will be available to download for £1.99 or $2.99 in the US.
