2000AD Prog 379: Rogue Trooper – blinded by the light! “My eyes… I can’t see!” KPOW! KPOW!

Robin Smith fills in on cover duties - not bad but when an art editor draws the cover I'm guessing it's because an artist couldn't be allotted in time. Tharg's Nerve Centre has a letter from somebody who attended the Birmingham Comic Art Show. Unfortunately the events listings are rarely showing who the guests are, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 379: Rogue Trooper – blinded by the light! “My eyes… I can’t see!” KPOW! KPOW!

The Daily Dredds: 1982

The first full year of weekly newspaper strips (it later went daily which is why we generally think of them as a daily strip, and that was the name given when they were collected in a hardback edition a few years back). Target Chief Judge - this is a bit of a strange one from … Continue reading The Daily Dredds: 1982

The Daily Dredds: 1981

In general the aim of this blog is to cover every publication from the House of Tharg (plus a few Tharg-adjacent things that have cropped up over the years) in roughly the order they came out - one blog per publication. When it comes to the newspaper strips, practicality demands a different approach. In 1981, … Continue reading The Daily Dredds: 1981

Ron Smith starts this annual with a fantastic full-painted colour cover - it's a real shame we didn't get to see more painted artwork from Ron (though his black and white stuff is nothing to complain about). Tharg introduces the Cosmic Contents page in a Carlos pic. Judge Dredd: Block-Out at the Crater Bowl by … Continue reading 2000AD Sci-Fi Special 1983: Featuring Judge Dredd plus!

2000AD Prog 295: “Die, Dredd!” Look out – there’s a “jimp” about! Zarjaz news for video gamers – inside!

Fresh from last prog's star pin-up of Dredd, Ron Smith's back for a Judge Dredd cover showing a scene from this prog's story. Tharg's Nerve Centre elucidates what the great news for video gamers mentioned on the cover is all about - it's later in this prog... Apparently (according to one earthlet) a recent government … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 295: “Die, Dredd!” Look out – there’s a “jimp” about! Zarjaz news for video gamers – inside!

2000AD Prog 238: Space wars! Final report this prog! Nemesis is back!

I've got a Nemesis badge I bought in the eighties somewhere - the image used is the Nemesis head in the centre of this cover. Going through the portal are a wide variety of aliens, and decades after purchasing this prog I still managed to notice a new detail (the mono-footed alien knife with a … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 238: Space wars!
