2000AD Prog 445: Johnny and Wulf Get Nailed! “Scratch two dogs!”

"No, I AM your brother!" as we say a temporary goodbye to Nemesis and a longer goodbye to Termight. Peace in our time on Milicom. The Mega-Citizenry takes the fall. Security Pods chase the Mean Team through the skies of Artificon. Alpha and Sternhammer are back - but for how long? It's time for the Ragnarok Job!

2000AD Prog 444: Welcome Home, Rogue! “Any last requests?” “Yeah… MISS!”

Purity's flashback, Candida's flashback, now it's the turn of Thoth and Satanus! Mystery hands are going to make Rogue war. Judge Dredd: I am the... love? The Mean Team go on the run and being psychic isn't all it's cracked up to be.

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 424: Midnight in the Mega-City… Surfing on the street! “Crazy skyhog!”

Fear falls first, Sláine versus the Nazis (not really), the mice are coming, a new passtime in the Mega-City (the cover kind of gives that away), the Norts flog a dead horse and the bounty hunters finish their big bust.

2000AD Prog 423: Dark Judges in Crash Dorm 2! “Ssssleep forever!” Anderson’s nightmare!

Things hot up in the Grand Hall of Justice, Sláine and Murdach's balancing act, Judge amok, Rogue in disguise (as a rhino) and the bounty hunters face the Howlers

2000AD Prog 333: “Um… synthi-sausage!” On the trail of the World Eating Championships.

For the second week running a wraparound cover (no instructions on 'how to activate' this week though). I'm trying to avoid saying "this week's prog cover is classic" as the nostalgia of my very first progs may colour my opinion - but this one from Carlos Ezquerra is undeniably a classic cover! Unfortunately the child … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 333: “Um… synthi-sausage!” On the trail of the World Eating Championships.

The Daily Dredds: 1982

The first full year of weekly newspaper strips (it later went daily which is why we generally think of them as a daily strip, and that was the name given when they were collected in a hardback edition a few years back). Target Chief Judge - this is a bit of a strange one from … Continue reading The Daily Dredds: 1982

The Daily Dredds: 1981

In general the aim of this blog is to cover every publication from the House of Tharg (plus a few Tharg-adjacent things that have cropped up over the years) in roughly the order they came out - one blog per publication. When it comes to the newspaper strips, practicality demands a different approach. In 1981, … Continue reading The Daily Dredds: 1981

2000AD Prog 327: Dredd – on the menu for the white werewolf!

Steve Dillon provides another Dredd werewolf cover, with colouring really bringing out the feeling of a white canine's fur. Tharg's Nerve Centre makes mention of the forthcoming annuals - which reminds me - when I get to them I'll also be 'mopping up' a few other publications which got missed out for various reasons. Tharg … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 327: Dredd – on the menu for the white werewolf!

2000AD Prog 319: “Samudroids!” BANZAI Robohunter revisits the Great Robot War!

A problematic cover with a few outdated racial stereotypes. Outside of those there's a nice design touch in having the Japanese flag in the sky. Tharg's Nerve Centre features another pic by future art droid John McCrea - no Judge Toyah this time - it's Rogue Sucker. Meanwhile one earthlet met script robot Alan Moore … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 319: “Samudroids!” BANZAI Robohunter revisits the Great Robot War!
