Twenty years on Titan for Anderson? Alpha gets a break, a cadet faces an interesting situation and Myrddin gets macrocosmic.
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.
Halo goes swimming and dancing, Tlachtga has a blast, a juve is primed and ready to explode, the bats come home to roost for the G.I.s and Bud doesn't quite make it to the New Territories.
Brendan McCarthy cover featuring blind Dredd facing off against future zombie Dredd! The Mutant doesn't look right though (he seems to have gained eyes). No letters this week in the Nerve Centre, instead a feature on Free "Dune" stickers and news that the Mega-plan will be revealed next prog (first touted a year earlier). Rogue … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 402: Free inside! 6 ‘Dune’ stickers! (not available to overseas readers) “Joe Dredd, meet… Joe Dredd!”
The the third week running the prog is adorned by a wraparound cover and the second of the three to be illustrated by Massimo Belardinelli, this one allowing for his distinctive imagination to be let loose on the back cover as he shows us Hel. The first time I ever used a photocopier was to … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 334: Sláine on Hel’s Edge
Steve Dillon provides another Dredd werewolf cover, with colouring really bringing out the feeling of a white canine's fur. Tharg's Nerve Centre makes mention of the forthcoming annuals - which reminds me - when I get to them I'll also be 'mopping up' a few other publications which got missed out for various reasons. Tharg … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 327: Dredd – on the menu for the white werewolf!
Dave Gibbons is back on a proper series (and not one-off Future-Shocks and Robo-Tales) and this is heralded with a Rogue Trooper cover - it's got all the elements, Rogue himself, all three biochips (if you look carefully), some Southers, some Norts and the black hole. Tharg uses the Nerve Centre to announce the fourth … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 228: Zarjaz new future war story! He’s the most feared man on Nu-Earth… Rogue Trooper
From the trailer at the end of last week's prog, I thought this would be the last episode of Portrait of a Mutant - the tagline this week instead suggests it's nearly over, but not quite - maybe it's just the flashback that's going to finish, and then we'll scoot ahead in to the present? … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 220: “No surrender!” Portrait of a Mutant nears its chill-powered climax-inside!
Carlos is back on cover duty with a very yellow and orange portrait of Johnny Alpha surrounded by vignettes of mutant persecution and the rise of the Kreelers - but I'm getting ahead of myself. The colours were probably added by Tom Frame, Steve Potter or someone on the editorial team (Robin Smith?) and this … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 202: No more muties! Portrait of a Mutant!
An unexpected appearance by a Terminator outrider on the travel tube on this Kevin O'Neill cover. Being an inveterate fan of Nemesis the Warlock - have I told you how Nemesis Book III was probably the main reason I'm still reading 2000AD to this day, when all other comics I was reading at the time … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 174: The race is on to attend the… 2000AD Galactic Olympics “Can’t wait to see the laser slalom contest!”
