"New series of Pat Mills’ classic ‘cowboys vs. dinos’ series, Flesh, comes to 2000 AD"

Time-travelling cowboys and murderous lizards are rampaging back into the pages of 2000 AD, as Flesh returns.


One of the all-time classic strips from early 2000 AD, Flesh made a thrilling, blood-splattering return to the weekly British anthology title last year after a hiatus of more than 30 years.


Created by Pat Mills (Marshal Law, Sláine: The Horned God) and Spanish artist Boix, Flesh: Midnight Cowboys follows on from the first series, with black and white artwork from series regular James McKay.


Set in the 23rd century, Flesh is the futuristic Western where time-travelling ranchers farm dinosaurs like cattle and send their meat back to a hungry future.


Last year’s Flesh: Texas was the long-awaited sequel to the much-loved original Flesh – part of the line-up in the very first issue of 2000 AD in 1977.


The new series debuts in Prog 1774, on sale in the UK on 14th March, online on 21st March, and in North America from 28th March.


With mankind surviving on synthetic food, the corporation Trans-Time sends its employees back to the age of the dinosaurs to butcher the great beasts, beaming their flesh to a hungry future. But these are no brainless lizards - and the dinos are fighting back...


After the Trans-Time base is destroyed, the survivors, stranded millions of years in the past, are ordered to drive their herds across the prehistoric American landscape to Texas – where another base promises safety ... and profit! The ranchers have already managed to survive one onslaught, but what is the latest obstacle in their path?


Flesh: Midnight Cowboys premieres with a riotous wraparound cover by 2000 AD legend Mark Harrison.
