2000AD Prog 328: “I am the LAAAAH!” RIP!

A second week on the cover for Steve Dillon, and the third for this Dredd story - also the third to feature a werewolf, though this one is Dredd himself! Tharg's Nerve Centre and Tharg announces the first stage of Project Thrill-Power Unlimited with the advent of Sláine in two week's time. An earthlet writes … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 328: “I am the LAAAAH!” RIP!

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!

Otto Sump's back, and that means Ron Smith is too, in a cover heralding the beginning of the ugly craze! p.s. this story is amongst those covered on the Mega-City Book Club. Strontium Dog: The Schicklgruber Grab Part 5 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. As Stix starts firing, Alpha hits the Time Ejector (like the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 186: “Get Ugly!” Revolting new craze sweeps Mega-City One!

2000AD Prog 185: The Dogs of War are Here!

Carlos takes the cover again - it's seeming like other art droids are barely getting a look-in lately! This one has Spiro and Gyro, henceforth to be known as the dogs of war (though I have a feeling they get another name later on). Strontium Dog: The Schicklgruber Grab Part 3 by Alan Grant and … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 185: The Dogs of War are Here!

2000AD Prog 184: “No-one apes the law!”

We're certainly getting a good run of classic covers in 1980, with the latest being Mick McMahon's Monkey Business at the Charles Darwin Block image of Dredd on a lawmaster with one or two passengers. My count is nine apes Strontium Dog: The Schicklgruber Grab Part 3 by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. Wagner and Grant … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 184: “No-one apes the law!”

2000AD Prog 183: “The predators have blown the dam… we’re caught in a death-trap!”

Belardinelli takes to the cover for the first time since Blackhawk I think? This one's alright, though the colours do it no favours - Lianna is yellow with brown hair and blue lips and eye shadow while T-Bone is green. Gruff at least looks as grey as you'd expect a wolf to be. Strontium Dog: … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 183: “The predators have blown the dam… we’re caught in a death-trap!”

Tornado Annual 1981: Black Hawk, Wolfie Smith and Johnny Lawless in spine-tingling full-length picture-stories!

The cover is painted by an uncredited artist and features Blackhawk surrounded by werewolves. A journey into adventure you'll never forget! - the contents page has an artist's impression of a covered moon buggy with a non-space-suited passenger possibly with a robot next to him. Before we get in to the first story, I'll just … Continue reading Tornado Annual 1981: Black Hawk, Wolfie Smith and Johnny Lawless in spine-tingling full-length picture-stories!

Final Part of our Writing Competition! Tornado No 19: Battle on Asteroid X44

Belardinelli contributes the last of the It's Your Turn covers. I wonder what the story is there - this series of cover story covers hasn't lasted as long as the Supercover Sagas did, perhaps they realised that the characters appearing in a comic are more likely to lure you in than completely unrelated things? This … Continue reading Final Part of our Writing Competition! Tornado No 19: Battle on Asteroid X44
