When Tharg wants to announce a major Dredd story starting, he brings in Brian Bolland to provide the cover - though on previous occassions he was actually drawing the story inside (at least the first episode - see The Judge Child Quest and Judge Death Lives). This time Block Mania gets the Bolland treatment, in … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 236: Block Mania
Four episodes in and Ace Trucking Co already gets its second cover by Massimo Belardinelli - it took fifty episodes for Meltdown Man to get the same honour (Dave Gibbons kept getting drafted in for MM covers). Tharg uses the Nerve Centre to push Block Mania (starting next prog) making it very clear that it's … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 235: "Keep the cargo busy, good buddy …I've got a plan!" G-B-H cools Kleggs in cold hold! See – Ace Trucking Co.
Has it been mentioned in the story that Rogue Trooper has blue skin? Lucky we've got colour on the cover to let us know. Also lucky for the stammels that they don't seem to have any problems with those chem clouds in this Dave Gibbons cover. Tharg reveals that Art Robot Bolland suffered a major … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 234: Keep on trucking with Ace Trucking Co. inside Rogue Trooper battles the Raiders of the Atomic Desert!
Dr Feeley Good appears on the cover, terrorising a pair of humes in their living room, cover courtesy of Mike McMahon. In the Nerve Centre, Tharg takes recent industrial action as an excuse to push subscriptions. Tharg also blames industrial disputes on the changing of Belardinelli to Carlos Pino towards the end of Flesh (I'm … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 108: The doctor will examine you now… Say ah… Aaaaah!
Strontium Dog is back, and hopefully with some of the equipment that makes the story distinctive! The cover is by King Carlos and shows Johnny fighting Fly's-Eyes Wagner atop a train (or what passes for a train in the future on an alien planet). In the Nerve Centre we find out that 2000AD (10p in … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 104: Death on the Mutant Express!
Kevin O'Neill brings us a very red cover, with melting droids screaming in the furnace while humans look on. In the Nerve Centre we get instructions on how to put the four parts of the poster together (cardboard, painted black to stop print showing from the other side, stick on to cardboard) plus a warning … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 103: Turn up the heat! The robo knackers yard is— Hell on earth!
Chief Judge Cal glares out while pronouncing his death sentence on Mega-City One in this eye-catching cover by Mike McMahon. Possibly the first colour depiction of a Chief Judge, the gloves and shoulder pads are all red, rather than green or yellow... The Nerve Centre is jammed full of letters this week, half on Ro-Jaws … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 94: Citizens of Mega-City One, I sentence you to… Death! Can no-one stop the insane Judge Cal?
Welcome to any new readers who followed the link from Eamonn's Mega City Book Club! Another week, another supercover, another art style I don't recognise. Not a fantastic picture, I'm afraid - can't help feeling that Belardinelli would have made a better job of it (you can tell I like his artwork, can't you?) I'm detecting … Continue reading Prog 26: Greetings, Earthmen! We are the First of the Satan Horde!
