2000AD Prog 447: Adventure Gaming Gets Thrill-Powered! You are Sláine in Tomb of Terror!
2000AD salmon leaps on to the 1980s fantasy gaming craze with Sláine, technology fails on Earth, but only when relevant to the plot, ugly lives in Mega-City One, home life with Wulf and goodbye to Azure.
2000AD Annual 1986
Lugjacks and distress buoys, illegal smuggling from Brazil, talking kneepads, a visit to the Milton Keynes Mutant Ghetto and what Norts do on their day off
2000AD Prog 419: Fear, Fire, Death & Mortis! “There’ss no sstopping uss now!”
Anderson dead (yeah, right) as the Dark Judges jump to another dimension, Sláine also jumps dimensions, ending up els-where, something smells at the Necropolis, hulks get lit and Alpha should have taken care of the robots (one way or another).

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