I do wish 2000 A.D. had more of a push in the U.S. again.
There are several Judge Dredd-related titles published by IDW, but I don't think those necessarily share any continuity with the UK material? IDW also has a Rigue Trooper book, but I haven't picked it up. (Artwork was a little underwhelming . . . his out fit didn't look quite right to me.)

We can maybe get 2000 AD over here if we pre-order it, but it comes in a monthly package. (Current one offered is Prog 1880 - 1883 for $21.40, which equals $5.35 US per an issue / I guess that about 3.43 pounds?)

The IDW titles are licensed material which don't have anything to do with the original continuity, no. I've avoided them, myself.
As far as 2000 AD goes, it's currently $2.45 here, which equates to $4.19, so at $5.35 per issue you're paying a bit over the cover price.

I liked the speech bubbles in that extract. Good way to make all the voices distinctive.

Rogue's helmet and pack look totally wrong, though.

What bugs me is, why is Rogue imitating Judge Dredd's trademark scowl?

Yeah . . . the helmet almost looks soft and floppy from some angles . . . totally doesn't look like it would provide any sort of protection.

As for the price, . . . I'm assuming there are extra costs involved with getting it from there to here. It's also annoying that it's marketed as a four-or-none thing . . . even many tpb collections here would be less expensive than that four-pack.

Well, I can understand the four or none thing, bearing in mind that it's a serial anthology. Who's going to want to buy one?

People who want to sample an issue?
