2000AD and Tornado Prog 163: “Ug!” Dredd draws another blank in his search for the Judge Child

Black Boab takes the cover this week (along with Dredd and that photo / holo of Owen Krysler). Tharg's Nerve Centre trails the Summer Special, in about 8 weeks' time (and teases that the secret of his powers will be revealed). Sam Slade: Robo-Hunter Day of the Droids! continues from TB Grover and Ian Gibson. … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 163: “Ug!” Dredd draws another blank in his search for the Judge Child

2000AD and Tornado Prog 152: Fiends of the Eastern Front! Not the horror of war – the war of horrors! Robo-Hunter returns! Sam Slade in Day of the Droids. Judge Dredd’s Hall of Heroes

A composite cover featuring panels from Fiends of the Eastern Front, Robo-Hunter and the entire four-part centrefold poster that starts this prog. I'm not a fan of cut and pasted jobs for covers (even though one of the first 'classic' progs I ever bought had one). Tharg's Nerve Centre has a run down of the … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 152: Fiends of the Eastern Front! Not the horror of war – the war of horrors! Robo-Hunter returns!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 96: We’re gonna hit him! That guy’s dead… unless he’s – Superman! Eject into hell with – Angel!

Aircraft on the cover means that Ian Kennedy is drafted in to bring an Angel illustration. The Nerve Centre has a warning of a 'special shock issue' - no idea what this is a reference to. The Day the Law Died! sees Grampus, leader of the Kleggs, appointed Deputy Chief Judge, replacing Fish, and a … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 96: We’re gonna hit him!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 95: Burn them – burn the robot rebels!

Mike Dorey provides his first cover for Ro-Busters (apparently he also did the uncredited cover for Prog 6 - John Probe against Nazi skeletons underwater). The Nerve Centre has letters about the 2000AD and Starlord merge - from those who like 2000AD and not Starlord, those who like Starlord and not 2000AD and those who … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 95: Burn them – burn the robot rebels!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 93: No! Please let me drown before the giant scorpions get to me!

In case there's any doubt, this Flesh cover shows off Belardinelli's skill at depicting monstrous beasts as a giant scorpion emerges from the waters to attack hapless humans in the Triassic. The Nerve Centre highlights that there was an industrial dispute which kept the prog from the shelves for the best part of a month. … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 93: No! Please let me drown before the giant scorpions get to me!

2000 A.D. Annual 1978

Where to start?  Firstly, this was supposed to be the next prog, but a few pages in I noticed that there was an ad for the first 2000 A.D. Annual and after a quick search to try to find out what date it was published it looks like it was after the last prog I … Continue reading 2000 A.D. Annual 1978
