2000AD Prog 382: 🟊 Heavy melt-all issue! 🟊 “Stomm!” “Judge clone in jeopardy… repeat… judge clone in jeopardy!”

Last prog Ron Smith showed that he could depict the destruction of cities other than Mega-City One. This cover shows that the city in question is about to be wholly destroyed - including the bits that got missed out fifty years earlier. Plus there's dialogue. We don't get enough speech balloons on comic covers these … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 382: 🟊 Heavy melt-all issue! 🟊 “Stomm!” “Judge clone in jeopardy… repeat… judge clone in jeopardy!”

2000AD Prog 302: “Hee! Hee! Hee!” Ben Ninety – Android!

Alan Davis is back on the cover showing last prog's stunning revelation regarding Old Ben 90.

The clues given are "it contains between 5 and … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 153: “Stomm! It’s Peters… The man who drank the blood of Satanus!”

2000AD Annual 1979

Kevin O'Neill provides the cover featuring two green aliens one threatening a woman in a skin-tight spacesuit and another being shot by some kind of cyborg. Thankfully the image stands on its own - i.e. there's no Supercover Saga copy inside the annual to detail what's going on. On the contents page is what might … Continue reading 2000AD Annual 1979

Prog 28: Terror at 20,000 Fathoms!

The terror of the tagline is a lobster-y, fish-y creature, looking out of the cover at we, the readers (while munching on a diver).  A note in the corner of the cover tells us that Dan Dare has returned (or more accurately D.D. if you don't know who Dan is from that then it's unlikely … Continue reading Prog 28: Terror at 20,000 Fathoms!
