2000AD Prog 355 cover, art by Cam Kennedy As a youngling I think I assumed this Sláine cover was drawn by Mike McMahon, but it is in fact by Cam Kennedy. Tharg's Nerve Centre.

Sam Slade: Robo-Hunter Day of the Droids! from … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 164: “Look out, you alien creeps – the LAW is here!”
Massimo introduces us to Big Hungry - a huge nothosaur - on the cover. This is going to be our Old One Eye of Flesh Book II! We usually get one less story for a jumping-on / merger prog, to allow for introductory pages, though this continues into this week. Tharg trails the returns of … Continue reading 2000AD and Star Lord Prog 87: Dinosaurs rule in Flesh Book 2
