Jumping on prog - the return of Nemesis, Thoth, Sam Slade, Burt and the debut of the Mean Team!
Anderson Psi Division makes her debut (well, in her own series), the worm turns (did I use that pun already?), another night, another graveyard shift, Rogue and the boys are all at sea and a bounty hunting duo become a bounty hunting trio.
Kevin O'Neill provides a new cover for the debut of Nemesis the Warlock Book IV. I say 'new' because the story within, while previously unpublished, was created some time before this prog was published. I'll probably cover that when Tharg does - in three prog's time. This prog has a cover date of the 13th … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 387: Nemesis the Warlock in The Gothic Empire
I'd bought a few of the preceding progs from 330 on, but in my mind this is the real start for me - though I still wasn't buying the galaxy's greatest every single week - that didn't happen for another few months. When the topic of best ever prog comes up on social media, this … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 335: Free Poster 430mm X 550mm 2 new stories! Nemesis the Warlock Strontium Dog
Prog 2000 sees a Robin Smith Tharg holding the completed Future-worlds poster taking the cover. The cover blurb says it's a giant poster, but the centre-spread presented partwork posters we've had previously have been bigger (by two pages). This is Prog 200 (may as well be called This is 2000AD, as it serves as an … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! “I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!”
A composite cover featuring panels from Fiends of the Eastern Front, Robo-Hunter and the entire four-part centrefold poster that starts this prog. I'm not a fan of cut and pasted jobs for covers (even though one of the first 'classic' progs I ever bought had one). Tharg's Nerve Centre has a run down of the … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 152: Fiends of the Eastern Front! Not the horror of war – the war of horrors! Robo-Hunter returns! Sam Slade in Day of the Droids. Judge Dredd’s Hall of Heroes
Star Trek the Motion Picture just came out (or will be soon), so today's cover is given over to the Enterprise (there's a competition to win some toys inside as well). The rest of the cover is covered with blurb. Being a virtual jump-on prog (Wolfie has a continuing story), the page where Tharg's Nerve … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 140: Harry Harrison’s world famous super crook Slippery Jim di Griz bursts into strip in our adaptation of The Stainless Steel Rat plus! Great new story – the VC’s! Thrill to space war at its most savage as Earth star-troopers take on alien invaders!
A new title, a new logo. Dave Gibbons paints the first cover for 2000AD and Tornado. Those readers arriving from Tornado must have been pleased at the better quality paper and printing after putting up with toilet paper-quality Tornado for the past 22 weeks. This won't last. Seven days, in fact - then the brief … Continue reading At last! Britain’s top two papers join forces! 2000AD and Tornado Prog 127: I, Tharg, welcome the Tornado heroes!
