After two weeks of O'Neill Nemesis covers, Bolland is on his second Judge Death cover - this time joined by Judges Fear, Fire and Mortis. It's good, though very similar to the last page of last week's episode of Dredd (though with added Death). This prog had a cover date of Saturday 15th August 1981 … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 225: Dark Justice in Mega-City One!
Mike McMahon turns in a trademark gigantic Dredd sitting on a citiblock in this cover, originally published mid-March, 1981. Mike really seems to like giant Dredds looming over the city. Strontium Dog: Portrait of a Mutant Part by Alan Grant and Ezquerra. The newly-named Johnny Alpha introduced to General Armz (guess what his mutation is?) … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 204: King of the Streets!
Prog 2000 sees a Robin Smith Tharg holding the completed Future-worlds poster taking the cover. The cover blurb says it's a giant poster, but the centre-spread presented partwork posters we've had previously have been bigger (by two pages). This is Prog 200 (may as well be called This is 2000AD, as it serves as an … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! “I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!”
Time for King Carlos to draw a wraparound cover, this one for... well, it's in the title of this post, and shows Slippery Jim and Angelina on the section that appears on the front of the prog, and He on the back cover - between them are various locations from the story so far (and … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 171: The Stainless Steel Rat Saves the World

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!
Carlos Ezquerra's cover shows our Stront trio in a boat crossing a lake or river of liquid fire. There's somebody else in the boat with them - I'd guess it's Fly's-Eyes, but if it is then he's donned a hood. The Nerve Centre points out the lack of Dredd, plus we get reader's art of … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 109: Flames of Hell!
Dr Feeley Good appears on the cover, terrorising a pair of humes in their living room, cover courtesy of Mike McMahon. In the Nerve Centre, Tharg takes recent industrial action as an excuse to push subscriptions. Tharg also blames industrial disputes on the changing of Belardinelli to Carlos Pino towards the end of Flesh (I'm … Continue reading 2000AD and Starlord Prog 108: The doctor will examine you now… Say ah… Aaaaah!
