Anderson dead (yeah, right) as the Dark Judges jump to another dimension, Sláine also jumps dimensions, ending up els-where, something smells at the Necropolis, hulks get lit and Alpha should have taken care of the robots (one way or another).
Halo doesn't meet with an old friend in a bar, Ukko completely fails to comfort Tlachtga and we re-meet Elfric, Primo gets a bit hot-headed, the adviser advises Rogue and Crustacia scuttles off.
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!
Robin Smith reprises the last panel of last week's Dredd (and no doubt the opener of this week's too) in this cover showing vampire Hershey about to put the bite on Dredd. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a letter from an earthlet whose brother insists that Helltrekkers is 'copied' from Bloodfang (a dinosaur story running in … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 396: WIN! Dungeons & Dragons treasure trove! “We need NEW BLOOD – join us, Joe…” “Hershey! She’s a VAMPIRE!”
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!”
We've had the starscan a few progs ago, now we get the Ian Gibson cover heralding the start of Alan Moore's latest epic. Tharg's Nerve Centre's features a letter from a reader in New Zealand, noting that they received their 4th of February cover-dated prog on 29th of April, meaning it was 85 days late. … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 376: Where did she go? Out. What did she do? Everything. The Ballad of Halo Jones
I wouldn't want to disparage Robin Smith's artwork, but getting the art editor to provide a cover featuring a Judge Dredd pose we've seen a few times before makes it look like he had to rustle something up at the last minute... Tharg's Nerve Centre - one earthlet boasts of reading 2000AD "at 30,000 feet … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 374: Hot lead – cold justice! “This is the law!”
Cam Kennedy is back on Sláine - Sky Chariots cover duty as he depicts a one-on-one fight between Sláine and a Norseman berserker. Tharg's Nerve Centre shares space between two pieces of reader's art, two letters, the voting coupon, an obligatory stamp advert and the Titan / Forbidden Planet advert for Judge Child Book Three. … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 357: 100 Judge Dredd games to be won – this prog! Invasion of the berserks! Sláine
I don't remember seeing a Kevin O'Neill wraparound cover before now - this one has Nemesis facing the massed ranks of Terminators at the... well, it's in the title of this blog post. For some reason I didn't buy this prog when it first came out, so it took me some time to find out … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 340: The Siege of Ydrasill Castle
Kevin O'Neill provides the kind of cover we've never seen before - a homunculus-eye view of being born, from inside the egg! Pretty sure we've not seen that since either. Or in any other comic, for that matter. In Tharg's Nerve Centre TMO states that this prog is an attempt at the Galactic Thrill-Power record, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 337: Something slimy this way comes… Join Nemesis at the Hatching!
