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
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!
Another prog, another classic Brian Bolland cover - this one celebrating multiple Eagle Award wins. Tharg's Nerve Centre (is this the first time it's been called that?) has the first mention of an upcoming Robo-Hunter story next year (this prog is published in October 1979). Judge Dredd: The Invisible Man from John Howard and Ron … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 134: Eagle Awards Top British Comic – 2000 A.D. Top British Character – Judge Dredd
Belardinelli contributes the last of the It's Your Turn covers. I wonder what the story is there - this series of cover story covers hasn't lasted as long as the Supercover Sagas did, perhaps they realised that the characters appearing in a comic are more likely to lure you in than completely unrelated things? This … Continue reading Final Part of our Writing Competition! Tornado No 19: Battle on Asteroid X44
Ian Kennedy turns in a It's Your Turn cover featuring a racing car crashing - makes a change from aircraft... The Big Editorial is empty except for requests for readers to send content in. The Lawless Touch has Johny being given a mission to hijack a truck that's going to be travelling non-stop from Harwich … Continue reading Tornado No 18: Drama on Devil’s Bend!
Like the 2000AD Annual 1979, Kevin O'Neill paints the cover for Dan Dare's first annual (well, the first one since 'Eagle Dan Dare's Space Annual 1963', anyway). It's a good cover that stands on its own - please don't have this cover have a text story in the annual! A Dave Gibbon's be-space-suited Dare greets … Continue reading Dan Dare Annual 1979 – Destroy that starcarrier or the whole galaxy will be enslaved!
