Light dawns on Alpha's voyage, the barbarians enter the tomb, the lurker gets more than they bargained for and Rogue gets back in to the war.
A few years after Judge Dredd: The Game of Crime-Fighting in Mega-City One came the first 2000AD-related roleplaying game!
A wraparound cover from King Carlos - it seems like ages since the last one - Umm, Synthi Sausage, I'd guess? We won't have to wait too long for the next one! This heralds the start of the return of the Stainless Steel Rat (though not The Stainless Steel Rat's Return, which never got adapted). … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 393: Move over, Ron – Slippery Jim di Griz is back! The Stainless Steel Rat… …for President!
Cam Kennedy shows the traitor playing a chess-a-like game with figures of Rogue and the (embodied) biochips in this latest cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a lesson in Irish (not about Sláine for a change, but regarding Spud Murphy referring to The Garda instead of The Gardai). Nemesis the Warlock Book IV: The Gothic Empire … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 388: Future War Games on Nu Earth “My move, G.I.!” SNAP!
Kevin O'Neill provides a new cover for the debut of Nemesis the Warlock Book IV. I say 'new' because the story within, while previously unpublished, was created some time before this prog was published. I'll probably cover that when Tharg does - in three prog's time. This prog has a cover date of the 13th … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 387: Nemesis the Warlock in The Gothic Empire
Following yesterday's collection of what Games Workshop released, today I'm taking a stab at Citadel Miniatures productions. These are a little more involved than Games Workshop's release schedule, comprising different minis in the range, some discernible only by their production codes. So I've put them in to a spreadsheet. For good measure (and because it … Continue reading Citadel Miniatures Index
Ron Smith starts this annual with a fantastic full-painted colour cover - it's a real shame we didn't get to see more painted artwork from Ron (though his black and white stuff is nothing to complain about). Tharg introduces the Cosmic Contents page in a Carlos pic. Judge Dredd: Block-Out at the Crater Bowl by … Continue reading 2000AD Sci-Fi Special 1983: Featuring Judge Dredd plus! Rogue Trooper future war hero! Return of the Jedi colour preview Tharg the Mighty as you’ve never seen him before!
For most of the 1980s (and some of the 1990s?) Games Workshop and Citadel Miniatures had a licence with IPC to produce games and miniatures based on 2000AD characters. They only ended up using Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper and (very minimally) Strontium Dog. Here's a list of what was how Games Workshop used their licence … Continue reading Games Workshop Index
I promised I wouldn't keep going on about how iconic some of these covers are, so I'll just mention that the Mick McMahon cover was parodied a few decades later (though that one will have a wig attacking Joe instead of a squiddy-alien-thing). Tharg's Nerve Centre brings bad news. The galaxy's greatest comic is going … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 310: “Kill me… it’s your only hope!” Dredd – victim of the Starborn Thing!
In his time between illustrating the misadventures of Ace Garp and starting work on Sláine Belardinelli seems to be working on a mixed bag of projects, and this one is a wraparound cover. Skimming ahead in the prog there's a text feature on it so I won't say any more now. Tharg's Nerve Centre is … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 304: Secret of the Bermuda Triangle?
