"Cover for Christmas prog first treat in 24 days of delight!"
On the first day of Christmas, Tharg the Mighty gave to me... A Mek-Quake chewing on me.

Tharg the Mighty isn’t sure why you Terrans get so excited for Christmas, as it can’t possibly have as much Thrill-Power as the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!
Still, he understands that this ‘Christmas spirit’ – aside from inciting humans to acts of department store rioting and dangerous levels of fowl-based overindulgence – is required every twelve months to stop you all going mad. (The suggestion from one editorial droid that the Mighty Tharg don a fake beard and say “ho ho ho” were met with an icy stare. We haven’t seen Robo-Keef for a few days. Tharg says he’s “gone on holiday”, but we fear for the worst)

So he is spoiling you Earthlets with a stocking-sized TWELVE DAYS OF THARGMAS!

Watch www.2000ADonline.com for suggestions for some pulse-pounding presents from the greatness that is the 2000AD graphic novel collection, as well as interviews with creators whose work graces the forthcoming bumper Christmas edition – Prog 2012!

On sale for three weeks from 14 December, this Earth-shattering Thrill-powered compendium of awesomeness is the perfect antidote to your anodyne Yule or the horror of another slab of mother’s Christmas cake.

What awaits you in this momentous publication? Observe:
JUDGE DREDD: CHOOSE YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS by Al Ewing & John Higgins
NIKOLAI DANTE: THE WEDDING OF JENA MAKAROV by Robbie Morrison & Simon Fraser
GREY AREA: MEET AND GREET by Dan Abnett & Karl Richardson

And all capped by this gorgeous cover from Greg Staples! Truly, with this festive treat Tharg shows that he is indeed Mighty and Benevolent!

Keep your eyes peeled for more Twelve Days of Thargmas goodies, earthlets! No 2000 AD? No Christmas!
