Colin Wilson's cover shows Dredd jumping on to a mopad as it exits a tunnel (though aren't mopads mobile apartments, not just any old truck)? Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 17 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Torso is a better pilot than you'd expect somebody with no depth perception to be. Though even … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 219: Traffic duty – Mega-City One Style! “Dredd’s stumm-gassed the mopad! All bikes move in!”
No prizes for guessing what Johnny's going to do with the gun which sister Ruth smuggled to him, in this cover by Carlos Ezquerra showing Johnny, Middenface and the Torso from Newcastle over the body of a Kreeler prison warden. Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 16 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra.+ It's a … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 218: The galaxy’s first thrill-powered vid-zine! Strontium Dog leads… the Upminster jailbreak!
I thought it was an image from Block Mania at first, but no, this is a different group of marauders on Mick McMahon's latest cover. Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 15 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Johnny's sister Ruth manages to sneak a blaster to her brother, but Johnny decides not to use … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 217: Universal Havoc! It’s the Platinum Horde’s last stand!
Another prog, another iconic cover from Brian Bolland. There's not many comics where a spaghetti (sorry, synthetti) monster is going to emerge from a plate, reaching out for you! Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 14 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Despite their threat to explode Upminster with everybody inside, when faced with a … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 216: The synthetti men are out to get you!
This is an excellent cover by Brian Bolland, featuring to contract killers targetting half of a couple in a window on the block opposite - from body language it looks like they're mid-argument, so no prices for guessing who took out the contract! The block in question is Rolf Harris Block - that hasn't aged … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 215: Meet Mega-City One’s Contract Killers!
Brendan McCarthy puts in a cover which could be a blown-up panel from this week's Future-Shock (though in better resolution than if that had happened). Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 12 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Kreeman having escaped, Johnny walks back along corridors and halls strewn with those who died to get … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 214: In the newsagents: “Skud gen gehr!” “Idiot! I asked for 2000 AD – not 2000 elbow scratchers!” The English/Phlondrutian Phrasebook
Brian Bolland puts in a very competent cover, though unrelated to any of the stories inside. Oh, wait a minute, I see a small narrative box with the words "see p.22" so it looks like there's going to be a half-page story to plough through. I don't mind covers which tell stories unrelated to the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 213: “I’ve got to kill you, Scott! If I don’t, Lamrox will enslave the galaxy!” (see P.22.)
