2000AD Prog 192: “Splundig vur ho, ho, ho!”

Carlos is back (again) with a wraparound cover. I was trying to find a thumbnail of the entire cover but couldn't find one (not one in colour, anyway) though did come across the interesting tidbit - this is the first time a Carlos Dredd was published since 1977! Albeit as part of a montage also … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 192: “Splundig vur ho, ho, ho!”

2000AD and Tornado Prog 172: “Anything to report, Lopez?”

Brian Bolland takes Judge Lopez on a trip with this cover. I can only presume that in those pre-desktop computer days, Bolland had to draw the stretched versions of Hershey and Dredd by hand - and (of course) a great job he did as well. This prog would have gone on sale on Monday 4th … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 172: “Anything to report, Lopez?”

2000AD and Starlord Prog 112: We’ve Hit the Shark Car – Now it’s Next Stop Saturn Six!

Back in the days when I was on the hunt for back progs, this was one that I bought some time before those immediately before and after it - and this was largely due to the cover. As a fan of Nemesis the Warlock, I had to have the story which inspired it (though I … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 112: We’ve Hit the Shark Car – Now it’s Next Stop Saturn Six!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 111: No gun, no chance, Dredd – the wrecking ball is gonna crush your skull! Assault at Hell’s Junction!

Ron Smith's first cover for 2000AD (and Starlord) is of an Exo-Man attacking Dredd with a wrecking ball while on a zoom track (it may or may not be called the zoom at this point, but when I started reading 2000AD, that's what it was called). The Nerve Centre has a reader-submitted short story which … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 111: No gun, no chance, Dredd – the wrecking ball is gonna crush your skull! Assault at Hell’s Junction!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 110: It’s the Rebel Leaders! Guards – Kill Them!

The first thing to say about this prog is that the printing has improved drastically (as was noted in other prog slogs), more akin to Starlord than to 2000AD or Tornado. A forum thread details changes over the years. This particular prog has a Dave Gibbons cover of Dare and Sondar on the run. The … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 110: It’s the Rebel Leaders! Guards – Kill Them!
