Nemesis is back, and so is Redondo on this cover (though you'd be forgiven for not recognising it is a Nemesis cover, if it wasn't for the logo). Tharg reveals in a response to an earthlet's letter in the Nerve Centre that bicycles were banned in Mega-City One as the lobbies of the city-blocks were … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 246: “Your bids, please, for these fine young humans!”
A Ron Smith cover introduces the name "Old Stony Face" - that's a name that will stick (I don't think it's been used before, anyway). Either Lawmasters have really flexible headsets, as the front (that the handlebars and canon are attached to) is going in a completely different direction and angle from the rest of … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 233: "Blast 'em!" "Old Stony Face" leads the Hotdog Run!
Brush your teeth and comb your hair - the last of Tharg's thrills gets its own cover with the kind of starfields we've only seen in early Dan Dare and late Blackhawk.

Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 15 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Johnny's sister Ruth manages to sneak a blaster to her brother, but Johnny decides not to use … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 217: Universal Havoc! It’s the Platinum Horde’s last stand!
Another prog, another iconic cover from Brian Bolland. There's not many comics where a spaghetti (sorry, synthetti) monster is going to emerge from a plate, reaching out for you! Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 14 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Despite their threat to explode Upminster with everybody inside, when faced with a … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 216: The synthetti men are out to get you!
Brendan McCarthy puts in a cover which could be a blown-up panel from this week's Future-Shock (though in better resolution than if that had happened). Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part 12 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Kreeman having escaped, Johnny walks back along corridors and halls strewn with those who died to get … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 214: In the newsagents: “Skud gen gehr!” “Idiot!
