2000AD Prog 442: Sam Slade: Robohunted! “Shoot heem op!” “Yup!” “Yup!” “Yup!” “Yup!” Blat! Blat! Blat! Blat! Blat!

Slade takes to the water, Rogue warns of fireworks, Satanus produces fireworks (oh, and we get to see the face of the character voted best villain at the Eagle Awards), a Mega-vigilante for Mega-City One, the ultimate weapon and Bad Jack has a flashback.

2000AD Annual 1986

Lugjacks and distress buoys, illegal smuggling from Brazil, talking kneepads, a visit to the Milton Keynes Mutant Ghetto and what Norts do on their day off

2000D Prog 426: Midnight Express – Southbound Surfer! “Intruder on track! Impact unavoidable!”

Johnny and Wulf in semi-retirement on a forested colony planet, a pilot stranded on a forested planet (apparently), Sláine... the gladiator, Marlon goes on the run (flutter? Because he's flying), Rogue gains a lead though also gains a few enemies in the next zone (ambush alert?) and the remaining Dark Judges also 'port in to an ambush.

2000AD Prog 425: No escape for Smiley’s people! The Slavers of Drule “Who can help us now?”

Puntastic alien slavers attack a colony world, Sláine and Murdach go flying, Marlon also goes flying, Rogue meets Moho and Anderson gets another chance to prove herself.

2000AD Prog 424: Midnight in the Mega-City… Surfing on the street! “Crazy skyhog!”

Fear falls first, Sláine versus the Nazis (not really), the mice are coming, a new passtime in the Mega-City (the cover kind of gives that away), the Norts flog a dead horse and the bounty hunters finish their big bust.

2000AD Prog 420: Sláine: El hath no fury… “Kill the hu-man!” Cosmic competition! Win the Henshin robos!

Anderson's back! Tharg's Food-Shocks. What is Sláine's type? Dark Judges at large! Is Dredd needed? Nah! Bounty hunting is thirsty business.

2000AD Prog 401: Free Panini Dune album (not available to overseas readers) The return of Rogue Trooper “Here are my boys… make them into MEN!”

A Cam Kennedy cover heralds the return of Rogue (after only a few weeks away) and the long-awaited regening of the chips. Tharg's Nerve Centre trails the new prog by telling us that part 2 of the '85 Calendar will appear - and then announces that part 1 is appearing in this, like, prog. No … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 401: Free Panini Dune album (not available to overseas readers) The return of Rogue Trooper “Here are my boys… make them into MEN!”

2000AD Prog 400: Dogfight – the rat bites back! WHAAM!

King Carlos shows that a landscape image of an aircraft exploding after being hit by missiles looks better when drawn by a comic artist than when stolen (without credit) by a gallery artist. Always great to get a wraparound cover from Carlos. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a reader complaining that none of the Strontium Dog … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 400: Dogfight – the rat bites back! WHAAM!

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 391: Q: What does a dinosaur call a Helltrek? HRRRAAIII! A: Meals on Wheels!

Robin Smith provides the a Helltrekkers cover - I'm liking his rendition of the tyrannosaurs! Tharg's Nerve Centre opens with an unexpected tribute to Albert Robida - a French artist considered to be an early pioneer of sci-fi / steampunk style illustrations, from before either term had been invented. Tharg says he suggested a tribute … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 391: Q: What does a dinosaur call a Helltrek? HRRRAAIII! A: Meals on Wheels!
