Halo finds out something about her past, Sláine finds out something about Earth's past, Dredd finds out where the Hunters Club meet, Rogue finds out that Norts aren't the only aliens and we find out that Rudd falls for one of the oldest tricks in the book.
Rogue and the boys go batty, we find out who ate all the pies, Halo has to trust a bunch of rats, Chip cashes in his chips, the Imperial Army divides and fails to conquer and things get hot for Korky and Rose.
Halo smells a rat, Oscar goes to Earth, the latest recruit is not a Chip off the old Bub, two thieves don't much about art and everything looking Rosie for Korky...
Halo meets... erm... Oscar the Psi meets a bank robber. Chip meets the Hunters Club. Robots meet humans. Guppies meet lava.
Toby gets some exercise, White Cloud investigates a colony, a kneepad seller gets hunted down, media empires make the news and Rudd fits in a quick marriage.
A change of pace for Halo, Rogue heads to Horst, Dredd gets bionic peepers and Anderson faces the young Mutant, Tomas de Torquemada (spoiler) dies, so does Titus Nebb.
We see the writer of the Ballad of Halo Jones (it's not Alan Moore), Rogue goes rogue, zombie Dredd fights time-travelling Dredd, but then zombie Dredd becomes a time-travelling Dredd, Torque goes through changes and the Helltrekkers meet their next challenge (the Nebbs are involved).

The rest of the Nerve Music … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 404: Torquemada dresses to kill! FWOOSHH! “Your fireballs cannot harm me now, Nemesis… repent and die!”
There's been a few 2000AD-related songs released already, but this was the first official one, and has artwork from an established 2000AD artist, as befits that. Something I only noticed this week about Brian Bolland's cover artwork (also used for the cover of Prog 403) is that the citiblocks on the front and back match … Continue reading The Fink Brothers: Mutants in Mega-City One
This Brian Bolland cover finally heralds thre reveal of the long-touted Mega-plan.... ...though doesn't reveal enough that Tharg can't still tease it in the Nerve Centre as an answer to a letter from an earthlet about members of Madness being fans of 2000AD - have they forgotten Prog 272 already? It even made it on … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 403: Mega-plan revealed: judge gets criminal record! “I’ll make those creeps sing!” Inside! Fink Brothers beat the rap?
