Johnny and Wulf down at the farm, Sláine masters the warp spasm, Chopper gets a lead in Supersurf while Dredd gets a lead on the Supersurf finish, Ace gets news of his own finish and things aren't looking rosy for Rogue either.
Anderson invites the Dark Judges to limbo, Sláine has a wardrobe change, Supersurf 7 is go, Johnny and Wulf pay a trip to the farm and a 20th century earthlet Boing®s to the 22nd.
Back for his second cover Bryan Talbot shows a dishevelled Mongrol making a return and Tom Frame (presumably) contrasts the yellow and red of Mongrol with greens and blues for Nemesis. Tharg's Nerve Centre has Free Gift News! The next prog will feature a Dune album. Tharg also answers a reader's query by revealing that … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 399: A.B.C. K.O. B.E.M. S.N.A.F.U! (O.K?) “Mongrol SMUSH!”
One of my early favourite Dredd tales as Brett Ewins does a try-out for Anderson (probably not, but it couldn't have harmed his prospects) in this cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a stamp competition in the corner with unwittingly difficult questions (things like "Has non-royalty appeared on British stamps?" or "Has the Queen Mother appeared … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 359: A demonic attack – at the heart of justice! The Haunting of Sector House 9 AAAAAAAAAAAAAA
The second week running and third Sláine cover overall from Cam Kennedy as the volcano has blown its top. Tharg's Nerve Centre contains news that Burt had gone missing - though it turned out the editorial droid had merely gone to work on a computer magazine. I think it was K magazine and I have … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 358: Sky chariots on FIRE Sláine
Ron Smith's back on the cover doing what he does best - depicting the eccentric (to put it politely) citizenry of Mega-City One. Obviously nostalgia is playing a part here, after all I'm re-reading the first few months I encountered and have been reading constantly for the last thirty-seven years, but these progs really are … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 356: “I’ll have the biggest NOSE in Mega-City One!” “Glad to hear it son. It’s about time you had an interest in life!” Citizen Snork Part 1
2000AD Prog 355 cover, art by Cam Kennedy As a youngling I think I assumed this Sláine cover was drawn by Mike McMahon, but it is in fact by Cam Kennedy. Tharg's Nerve Centre. Cam Kennedy isn't just muscling in on Mike McMahon's characters as an earthlet points out that Skizz appeared in the corner … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 355: Slough Throt summons… the birds!
Ezquerra provides the Strontium Dog cover which is basically the last panel of the last prog's / first panel of this prog's story with the window framing the cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre brings good news - work has finished on the 2000AD Annual 1985 - the reason it's particularly good news is that astute readers … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 354: “Easy meat! The wounded walk in for treatment – and we finish them off!”
2000AD Prog 353 cover, art by Steve Dillon Steve Dillon's first cover since Cry of the Werewolf is also depicting a scene from the Dredd story within. Tharg's Nerve Centre brings news that a cat at Bristol Polytechnic is now a squaxx (along with seven students). Sláine: Sky Chariots Part 2 by Pat Mills and … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 353: Simply light years ahead! Judge Dredd vs. Captain Strange and his Weird Boys! “Drokk! Firebomb!”
Three episodes in and this new series already has its second cover from Alan Davis, again heralding a new storyline. Should have mentioned that one reader wrote in to say they'd read 2000AD on top of the Great Pyramid at Giza. I mention this now because another reader sent in a photo (not published) of … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 352: D.R. & Quinch go girl crazy! “I think I’m in l♡ve!” SKRAANG!
