2000AD Prog 434: West Side Rumble “♪ A-rumbling! A-rumbling! ♪” “The Sharks were ♫ born for rumbling!” “♪ There’s nothin’ we like better than a fight! ♫” “♩ A-rumbling! A-rumbling! ♪” “♩ We love to go a-rumbling! ♪” “♫ We love to ♩ lay in ambush ♩ in the night! ♪”

Nest has a future-shock moment, uplifted apes try to avoid work, the slavers get hot under the collar, Mega-City street gangs get musical, be careful how you get to the spaceport.

2000AD Prog 392: Target: Traitor General – revenge for Rogue Trooper! “There’s the murderer!” “I see him!” “FIRE!”

At a guess I'd have said this cover was by Brett Ewins and Brendan McCarthy, though Barney only credits Brett. Considering the main quest of Rogue and the biochips for the three years they've appeared has been to hunt down the Traitor General, it's only fair that the TG gets on to the cover, along … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 392: Target: Traitor General – revenge for Rogue Trooper! “There’s the murderer!” “I see him!” “FIRE!”

2000AD Prog 360: “It’s alive!” The Haunting of Sector house 9

Brett Ewins provides a second week's prog cover, this time featuring Psi-Judge Geller.

Tharg's Nerve Centre kicks of the Great Helmet Puzzle - i.e. why Dredd never shows … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 176: “Attention all staff droids! Next stop the planet of Zrag!”

2000AD and Tornado Prog 174: The race is on to attend the… 2000AD Galactic Olympics “Can’t wait to see the laser slalom contest!”

An unexpected appearance by a Terminator outrider on the travel tube on this Kevin O'Neill cover. Being an inveterate fan of Nemesis the Warlock - have I told you how Nemesis Book III was probably the main reason I'm still reading 2000AD to this day, when all other comics I was reading at the time … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 174: The race is on to attend the… 2000AD Galactic Olympics “Can’t wait to see the laser slalom contest!”
