If you've missed the first two chapters of Demon Nic, currently running in the pages of 2000 AD's Judge Dredd Megazine, here's what you need to know before the third chapter hits shelves this week: First off, it's a new supernatural action series from writer/artist Paul Grist, the man responsible to for the single greatest superhero comic ever printed, and frequent collaborator and colorist Phil Elliott. Second, the main character is a demon named Nic --- hence the title --- in a world where an uneasy truce between humanity and the forces of Hell has been broken and now demons are just sort of hanging out in the world making front-page news.

Third, and perhaps most importantly, Nic was killed at the end of the second chapter by a karate nun. There, now you're all caught up.

Okay, there might be a little more to it than that, but if you haven't checked Demon Nic out yet, all you really need to know is that it's a new Paul Grist comic and that means it's probably better than anything else coming out. But if you need further proof, then have a five-page preview of the next installment below, "The Witch in the Tower" --- a very high fantasy title that refers to a local witch who lives in an apartment complex in the middle of a small town in England.







If you want to see more, you can grab Judge Dredd Megazine #363 --- as well as the previous two issues --- tomorrow as a DRM-free download from 2000adonline.com, from the 2000 AD app, or ask for it at your local comic shop.
