Comic Books - Rebellion's 2021 Roster


From mighty warriors fighting through way across distant lands to the high-danger streets of the future megalopolis and bonkers Halloween monster fun - there’s something for everyone with the Rebellion comic book specials this year...


Press Release

Rebellion has announced three upcoming comic books specials for 2021, which will be available from all good newsagents and comic book stores, as well as from the 2000 AD and Treasury of British Comics webshops.

Specials editor Keith Richardson said: “We’ve got an eclectic mix of specials this year from a whole special dedicated to swords-and-sorcery character Black Beth and a revival of Monster Fun, one of those fantastic all-ages titles from the 1970s.

“Despite the many obstacles put in our way last year, Rebellion’s 2020 roster of specials were a great success. While the world strives to resolve the terrible crisis that we still find ourselves in, we’ve scaled back the number of specials this year - but we’re keeping the quality high thanks to our roster of brilliant creators.”

Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh

After her appearance in the Scream! & Misty Special, by popular demand the sword-swinging Black Beth is back in Black Beth and the Devils of Al-Kadesh! Written by Alec Worley (Durham Red) and drawn by DaNi (Coffin Bound), Beth is a warrior-woman born in anger and forged in rage. She and her blind aide Quido have travelled to the wicked city of Shadrivar, in search of the evil witch Anis-Amuun.

Many think that she is long dead, but a mage called Estevan believes otherwise. He charges Beth with a quest to destroy the witch, initiating a sea-spanning quest which pits Beth’s curved blade against all manner of mystical creatures…and possibly Anis-Amuun herself!

2000 AD Sci-Fi Special

The 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special is back for a fantastic collection of original Dredd-world stories, all connected to the same over-arching narrative and plotted by writers Mike Carroll (Judge Dredd) and Maura McHugh (Anderson, Psi Division). Dive into the dystopian world of Judge Dredd as he brings law to the lawless on the mean streets of Mega-City One!
