Johnny and Wulf down at the farm, Sláine masters the warp spasm, Chopper gets a lead in Supersurf while Dredd gets a lead on the Supersurf finish, Ace gets news of his own finish and things aren't looking rosy for Rogue either.
Anderson invites the Dark Judges to limbo, Sláine has a wardrobe change, Supersurf 7 is go, Johnny and Wulf pay a trip to the farm and a 20th century earthlet Boing®s to the 22nd.
Another Belardinelli cover for the last episode of the current Ace Trucking Co, though also another composite cover using artwork from the episode itself (I guess it's cheaper than commissioning the artist to draw a new picture). The Dez Skinn / Steve Dillon half-page advert for Roar the Movie pushes the Nerve Centre into the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 258: Aliens+Robots+Future War+Future Sport+Big cash prizes When the going gets tough… The tough get going!
When I first started hunting down back progs of 2000AD it seemed an arduous task. I'd have been around ten years old and there were three hundred and twenty odd progs to collect. I initially aimed to collect the progs from 300 onwards (presumably if I had achieved this then I may have expanded my … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 257: “Stay where you are, Nemesis or the girl dies!”
Carlos provides a cover with Dredd and the Mega-City covered in snow, and it's not even the christmas prog! The Nerve Centre has Tharg telling us how he uses reader's art to threaten art droids with replacement if they dn't come up to scratch. Ace Trucking Co. The Great Mush Rush Part 6 by Grant … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 256: “The East-Megs are behind us! Get out while you can!” Readers’ art – your drawings inside
Ian Gibson is back on Ace Trucking Co for this cover. It's fair enough but nobody draws Ace like Belardinelli did. In the Nerve Centre Tharg lets all eartlets know that "your country's government" (presumably Britain, even though Malaysia, New Zealand, Australia and NI also feature in the cover price box) has declared 1982 Information … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 255: “By my corpse! Haul me up, Ace – FAST!” The Great Mush Rush continues in… Ace Trucking Co.
Dredd attacks a tank while riding a bike on the cover - in a radiation suit. The Nerve Centre is give to earthlets (and earthlettes) who seem to have missed previous Nerve Centres as one complains about the absence of O'Neill on Nemesis (explained in a Thargnote previously), a question about whether females can read … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 254: “It’s Lawmaster versus Rad-Sweeper, creep, and I don’t aim to lose!” PZZOOO!
Colin Wilson is on the cover for the first time in a while as he draws the scene I must have been thinking about when I noticed the drones flying around outside the Glasshouse last prog. It's not often we'll get a pink Rogue on the cover! Tharg plugs what looks like the second release … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 253: “Prisoners escaping… Initiate destruction!” Jailbreak at Glasshouse G!
Redondo provides a Brother Baruda cover where he fights an Arachon (in a circular panel). Tharg answers an earthlet's question in the Nerve Centre regarding the long-promised return of Dan Dare. The tantalising answer is that Dare will be appearing in a new weekly comic which will (hopefully) be released in the spring of the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 252: “No stinking spider gets the better of me!” Simply light years ahead!
Why didn't Meltdown Man get this many Belardinelli covers (not that those provided by other art droids weren't great, but...) Having said that - as with that B-Hive-K scan, this one is bodged from interior panels... The Nerve Centre has letters from an earthlet who thinks Space Truckers lingo is somehow an insult to Citizen's … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 251: The Great Mush Rush WARNING! This prog contains a record amount of thrill-power! Handle with care!
