Thirteen was a one-off story written by Mike Carey, with art by Andy Clarke. The story had been on Carey's mind for seven years before appearing in the comic. The writer has said "I wanted to do a story that was an insane, over-the-top space opera combined with the seventies paranoid thriller. I also had this idea for a narrative structure that would start small and then just keep on opening outwards like Chinese boxes until it was working on a cosmic level"
The story appeared in 2002 in 2000 AD #1289-1299 and has been collected into a trade paperback (ISBN 1-904265-36-7)
