Steve Dillon is back on the cover, and so is Tallon, flanked by a few of the Slayers we met before the Jensen Clan confrontation. This prog cost 16p and would have gone on sale on Monday 17th August 1981, two days after the signing of the annuals at Forbidden Planet on Denmark Street. The … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 226: In the Mean Arena, the name of the game is… get Tallon!
Brian Bolland provides a montage cover featuring Dredd, Johnny Alpha and Blackhawk flanking Tharg. Wasn't expecting to see Blackhawk again - I'm guessing it's going to be a text story... The contents page image is provided by Robin Smith and features Johnny Alpha - we'd better get a good Strontium Dog story this annual! Robin … Continue reading 2000AD Annual 1982
Colin Wilson's cover shows Dredd jumping on to a mopad as it exits a tunnel (though aren't mopads mobile apartments, not just any old truck)? Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 17 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Torso is a better pilot than you'd expect somebody with no depth perception to be. Though even … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 219: Traffic duty – Mega-City One Style! “Dredd’s stumm-gassed the mopad! All bikes move in!”
Brian Bolland draws an Empire Strikes Back tie-in competition featuring R2-D2, C-3PO, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca. They're looking slightly more like Palitoy toys than film characters... Tharg's Nerve Centre. It looks like Bonjo and Klep have truly been consigned to the scrap heap as Tharg announces Flush Gordon, coming to 2000AD. It asks … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 166: New this prog! The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World! / Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back – 15 electronic battle command games and 20 action figures to be won!
Black Boab takes the cover this week (along with Dredd and that photo / holo of Owen Krysler). Tharg's Nerve Centre trails the Summer Special, in about 8 weeks' time (and teases that the secret of his powers will be revealed). Sam Slade: Robo-Hunter Day of the Droids! continues from TB Grover and Ian Gibson. … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 163: “Ug!” Dredd draws another blank in his search for the Judge Child
Still quite a bit of blurb on this cover, but enough space for Carlos Ezquerra's Slippery Jim, the Corps from the last panel of last prog's episode and a few spaceships (plus a character we haven't met yet). Tharg's Nerve Centre is full of letters of criticism (plus a tharg's head and a 'battler of … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 141: Patrick Moore writes for you this prog! Collect the second section of your micro data prog, Starlord’s Guide to the Galaxy, inside!
Carlos Ezquerra (or is that L. J. Silver) provides a cover with Mongrol swinging around a tyrannosaur - I'm thinking this is not Golgotha. The Nerve Centre misses the 'Tharg' from the heading this week (the reason I keep banging on about exactly what the Nerve Centre is called is beccause it was always Tharg's … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 135: Uuuh… beastie bother Mongrol – Mongrol get PHYSICAL!
