Judge Dredd Annual 1986
Even perps get robbed in Mega-City One - of everything! If you're committing a crime, best make sure you get good quality clothing first. No space for prudishness when you're a judge. Citi-Def - more trouble than they're worth. What would you do to get on the vid?

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.

2000AD Prog 231: After 1984 there could only be… 2000AD Fight the fear of future war with… Rogue Trooper!
Rogue is looking up the barrel of a gun in this Dave Gibbon's cover - the gun itself is attached to a huge tank - so looks like my guess last prog about the tank battle was correct... Tharg is lost for words, and has a very brief Thargnote at the beginning of the Nerve … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 231: After 1984 there could only be… 2000AD Fight the fear of future war with… Rogue Trooper!

Judge Dredd Annual 1981: 2000 A.D.’s top sci-fi hero bursts into action!
Judge Dredd bursts through a map of a Mega-City One sector in this Brian Bolland cover. Tharg introduces the contents page, with a fantastic painting by Ron Smith of Mega-City One by Night. The city looks golden - probably more through a trick of the sunset or sodium lighting than from the blocks looking yellow. … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1981: 2000 A.D.’s top sci-fi hero bursts into action!
2000AD and Tornado Prog 130: The Mek-nificent Seven are here… Spread the word!
The hexagonal Mike McMahon ABC Warriors cover is bold, and unlike the usual comic cover. The Nerve Centre promises to publish both positive and negative letters in reaction to the 2000AD / Tornado merger, while also attempting to placate old Starlord fans. Meanwhile there are three pieces of reader art (all of which look original, … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 130: The Mek-nificent Seven are here… Spread the word!
2000AD and Starlord Prog 110: It’s the Rebel Leaders! Guards – Kill Them!
The first thing to say about this prog is that the printing has improved drastically (as was noted in other prog slogs), more akin to Starlord than to 2000AD or Tornado. A forum thread details changes over the years. This particular prog has a Dave Gibbons cover of Dare and Sondar on the run. The … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 110: It’s the Rebel Leaders! Guards – Kill Them!
