A SUMMER OF REVENGE AND BLOOD IN THE MEGAZINE
||THE BENDATTI VENDETTA|
Revenge is a dish best served cold ...
For years, among the law enforcement agencies and intelligence services
of mainland Europe, there have circulated rumours of a mysterious order
known only as the Bendatti, who wreak cruel and merciless vengeance upon
the criminals that the legitimate authorities cannot touch ...
The Bendatti Vendetta is a blood-soaked and angry contemporary thriller
in the Button Man mould courtesy of the writer and artist team of Robbie
Morrison and John Burns, whose most recent collaboration was on 2000
AD's award-winning Nikolai Dante epic, Tsar Wars. Book One, Vendetta in
Light, sees Faulkner and Serrault, agents of the shady Bendatti
organisation, seek revenge against international arms dealer Vronsky on
behalf of Maya Sinaro, whose family were slaughtered by an African
militia armed by Vronsky and his accomplices. In the background lurks
Jean-Paul Vanaheim, founder of the mysterious Bendatti - but is he
motivated by a sense of justice, or something darker?
Told in six parts, The Bendatti Vendetta is a cautionary fable of the
New World Order - and probably the most radical, dangerous strip ever to
appear in the Megazine. You'll pray it isn't true ...

||DURHAM VS DRACULA!|
Never give a bloodsucker an even break ...
In the slum-berg of Alpha Crucis, mutant bounty-hunter Durham Red tracks
her latest target to a suite of rooms on the third floor of the Ritz
Iscariot hotel. Count Tepes has been on the run for centuries ... but
are he and Durham joined by more than just the need for blood?
Children of the Night is the fourth Heresy presented in Durham Red: The
Scarlet Apocrypha, a seven-part series running in the Megazine this
summer and autumn in which a variety of artists present stand-alone
tales of 2000 AD's ever popular 'Strontium Bitch'. In a real coup for
the Megazine, Children of the Night sees legendary Spanish talent Enric
Romero (Modesty Blaise, Axa, etc) take his turn. Others contributing to
the series include John M Burns, Carlos Ezquerra, Mark Harrison, Frazer
Irving and Steve Yeowell.
