Art on the nine-page tale has been supplied by another 2000 AD fan favourite – D'Israeli, otherwise known as artist Matt Brooker.
Leah Moore has fond memories of the company from a child. She is quoted as saying "We are really excited to be finally working for the comic we have all grown up with (some of us more than others!). I remember my dad taking me to the 2000 AD office when I was small (maybe eight?) and meeting Tharg in the flesh! I said "Borag Thungg, O Mighty One". He said "Borag Thungg, Earthlet Leah". It was awesome. It's nice to see that bit of early networking paid off over two decades later."
