2000AD Prog 418: Death’s dark dimension: Necropolis now! “Unwrap the corpssse – sso that we may live!”

The DJs are back, so's Slough Feg, poison gas in MC1, the pincer movement continues (but doesn't resolve) and the Stronts go after their first bounties.

2000AD Prog 411: Sláine is back in Time Killer!

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.

2000AD Prog 410: Rogue Trooper – back at the front! This means war!

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.

2000AD Prog 399: A.B.C. K.O. B.E.M. S.N.A.F.U! (O.K?) “Mongrol SMUSH!”

Back for his second cover Bryan Talbot shows a dishevelled Mongrol making a return and Tom Frame (presumably) contrasts the yellow and red of Mongrol with greens and blues for Nemesis. Tharg's Nerve Centre has Free Gift News! The next prog will feature a Dune album. Tharg also answers a reader's query by revealing that … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 399: A.B.C. K.O. B.E.M. S.N.A.F.U! (O.K?) “Mongrol SMUSH!”

2000AD Prog 394: Tomorrow’s evil in the City of the Damned! “What the drokk…?” “The Hell Street Blues!”

I'd have been too young to have watched Hill Street Blues, but I would probably have gotten the pun on this cover from Ron Smith. It's only know when I look it up that I find the blue vampire judges shown are named after characters from the show. A brief search suggests the vampires in … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 394: Tomorrow’s evil in the City of the Damned! “What the drokk…?” “The Hell Street Blues!”

2000AD Prog 393: Move over, Ron – Slippery Jim di Griz is back! The Stainless Steel Rat… …for President!

A wraparound cover from King Carlos - it seems like ages since the last one - Umm, Synthi Sausage, I'd guess? We won't have to wait too long for the next one! This heralds the start of the return of the Stainless Steel Rat (though not The Stainless Steel Rat's Return, which never got adapted). … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 393: Move over, Ron – Slippery Jim di Griz is back! The Stainless Steel Rat… …for President!

2000AD Prog 392: Target: Traitor General – revenge for Rogue Trooper! “There’s the murderer!” “I see him!” “FIRE!”

At a guess I'd have said this cover was by Brett Ewins and Brendan McCarthy, though Barney only credits Brett. Considering the main quest of Rogue and the biochips for the three years they've appeared has been to hunt down the Traitor General, it's only fair that the TG gets on to the cover, along … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 392: Target: Traitor General – revenge for Rogue Trooper! “There’s the murderer!” “I see him!” “FIRE!”

2000AD Prog 389: A Machine? A Myth? Or a Man? A Case for Treatment

Ron Smith gives us a rare multi-panel cover as we focus on the gun, badge, chin and then portrait of Dredd marking the last episode of the Judgement triology. Tharg's Nerve Centre has earthlets interrogate Dredd on a variety of subjects. Unless contradicted in later stories, here's a list of Dredd facts (remember that, as … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 389: A Machine? A Myth? Or a Man? A Case for Treatment

2000AD Prog 379: Rogue Trooper – blinded by the light! “My eyes… I can’t see!” KPOW! KPOW!

Robin Smith fills in on cover duties - not bad but when an art editor draws the cover I'm guessing it's because an artist couldn't be allotted in time. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a letter from somebody who attended the Birmingham Comic Art Show. Unfortunately the events listings are rarely showing who the guests are, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 379: Rogue Trooper – blinded by the light! “My eyes… I can’t see!” KPOW! KPOW!

2000AD Prog 378: Ace Garp is OUT! “We’s truckin’, buddies!”

It seems like ages since Belardinelli made it on to the cover and this time it's to re-introduce (or introduce in my case) Ace Garp to squaxx. Tharg's Nerve Centre has one reader point out that Worm's Head Island is surrounded by strong tidal waters, which wasn't shown in Sláine: Dragon Heist. Rather than point … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 378: Ace Garp is OUT! “We’s truckin’, buddies!”
