Dogs die in hot Claras, the worm is about to turn, don't be that person at the party, Rogue goes underground (what's Nu?) and don't split the helltrek!
Toby doggedly pursues Halo, the Knucker gets Sláine in to trouble, big jobs in Mega-City One (but not from Mek-Quake), the un-named adviser advises Rogue, Rudd turns on the Nebbs.
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.
Interesting fact - after the last week's episode of Sláine I wrote a letter saying how much I loved the Dragonheist story and I hoped it would continue for ages. I don't think I sent it, though if I had by the time it got read the storyline would have finished - this very prog. … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 367: Sláine… dragonslayer?
King Carlos is back on the cover showing a scene from part 4 of Outlaw! (last on the cover for part 1 of the same story). Tharg's Nerve Centre is reduced to a Thargnote plugging the back page of this same comic while the rest of the page advertises Forbidden Planet T-shirts (only original image … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 366: “Yer a dead dog, Alpha!”
Robin Smith gives us the largest Tharg's head we've seen on this very green and blue cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre opens with a big Tharg note detailing how to get back progs, annuals and specials and ends with an advert for the Forbidden Planet (Titan) T-shirts. I spot two original designs by Mick McMahon - … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 365: I, Tharg, bring you Thill-power!
Ian gibson brings a gallery of characters to this Judge Dredd cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a phrase for thrill-starved squaxx in France to use (in response to a letter from somebody who has moved to Emerainville). An internet translator suggests the phrase is: "2000ad the only comic book in the galaxy that gives you … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 364: These are the slummies. They’re looking forward to the good life… …these are their new neighbours. They want a billion credit refund! Dredd is the judge in… High Society!
Strontium Dog is back. Carlos is back on the cover. And Stix are also back (good trick as the only one we knew about was killed in the story which introduced him). Tharg's Nerve Centre is much reduced due to an advert for Scream! No 3 (still interested in that the date is "Monday 2nd … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 363: Strontium Dog Their name is Stix… they have MURDER in mind!
The Haunting of Sector House 9 get its third cover from Brett Ewins, though this one just retreads the end of last week's episode. Some interesting uses of colour as the dialogue is a green-blue, the top headlights are blue, the lower headlights (infra?) red and the trim on the lastmaster is gold. Tharg's Nerve … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 362: “On yer bike, Dredd!” The spectre in the sector gets stroppy!
Ian Gibson introduces us to dragons in Sláine (and possibly a first for 2000AD as well, can't remember any dragons appearing prior to this cover). We don't know what we're seeing yet, but the prey of the dragon is in 'dragon-vision'. This was the first prog to be sold for 22p. Tharg's Nerve Centre has … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 361: Sláine …Enter the Dragon!
