Dave Gibbons is back on the cover with Rogue against the Dreamweavers - are we going to get a giant snake on Nu-Earth? The Nerve Centre lets us know that the next 2000AD annual will contain some Harlem Heroes reprint. Ace Trucking Co. Lugjack Part Six by Grant Grover and Belardinelli. Ace and G-B-H lie … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 249: Your gateway to the future! Menace of the Dream-Weavers! Thrill-power peaks in… Rogue Trooper
Rogue is looking up the barrel of a gun in this Dave Gibbon's cover - the gun itself is attached to a huge tank - so looks like my guess last prog about the tank battle was correct... Tharg is lost for words, and has a very brief Thargnote at the beginning of the Nerve … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 231: After 1984 there could only be… 2000AD Fight the fear of future war with… Rogue Trooper!
Jesus Redondo finally gets a cover! I've not been keeping track, but as well as ilustrating a cover to his story (Ian Gibson drawing the previous two Return to Armageddon covers), I think this might be the first cover I've seen by him in either Starlord or 2000AD. Also, as he's normally just 'Redondo' in … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 203: “Aeee! It’s the thing we saw on TV… the freak that can’t be killed!”
We actually got a warning that Walter would be returning last prog, and here he is on the cover by Ian Gibson (or is that Emberton?) Flipping forward to the Dredd tale's credit card - yes, it's Emberton this time. Strontium Dog: The Doc Quince Case Part 2 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. The lynching … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 191: “Pop one rivet and you’re dead, creep!” “Hooway! Judge Dwedd!”
Ian Gibson contributes a cover (not seen his work for a while - well, Robo-Hunter). Not for the first time he's working on a Redondo creation with Return to Armageddon - that makes Mind Wars, Project Overkill and now this that they've either collaborated on or otherwise had a connection. A crewman on Prairie Drifter … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 188: “AAAAAAAAHHH!” The tide of terror that swept the Galaxy continues in… Return to Armageddon
The second week of King Carlos covers and also the second week of Tharg tale related covers as well. The actual cover itself features AALN-1, the three Dictators of Zrag (their first appearance in the flesh?) and Tharg. The Nerve Centre gives Tharg yet another opportunity to plug next week's prog, plus news that the … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 177: “That office droid’s trying to save Tharg! Disintegrate it!” Has AALN-1 shot his bolts? See the Great Human Rip-Off!
Dave Gibbons brings us a fantastic cover showing a dark robot with a futuristic lance seated on the back of a larger, golden lizardine robot. Unless somebody else tells me different, I'm going to assume Tom Frame was responsible for the colours on this cover, which bring the image to life perfectly. Now, let's just … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 175: Super-charged sci-fi to smash your circuits!
