Ron Smith's back on the cover doing what he does best - depicting the eccentric (to put it politely) citizenry of Mega-City One. Obviously nostalgia is playing a part here, after all I'm re-reading the first few months I encountered and have been reading constantly for the last thirty-seven years, but these progs really are … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 356: “I’ll have the biggest NOSE in Mega-City One!” “Glad to hear it son.

Three episodes in and this new series already has its second cover from Alan Davis, again heralding a new storyline. Should have mentioned that one reader wrote in to say they'd read 2000AD on top of the Great Pyramid at Giza. I mention this now because another reader sent in a photo (not published) of … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 352: D.R. & Quinch go girl crazy! “I think I’m in l♡ve!” SKRAANG!
Cam Kennedy takes us to the moon (of Nu Earth) in this cover though I'm not sure if that's supposed to be Nu Earth in the background or a different moon?

Anyway, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 351: Rogue Trooper Walking on the moon!
Alan Davis is back on the cover (first time since Harry 20) heralding the first of a D.R. & Quinch series. For no reason I can work out, I hadn't bought any weekly progs since Prog 342.

Tharg's Nerve Centre … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 349: Bad news for aliens in Nemesis the Warlock Book III “The arch deviant is defeated!”
