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

The cover is apparently by G. Wood, if I'm reading the signature correctly. It has good depictions of Tharg and Bill Savage, and a rendition of Judge Dredd that wouldn't have been out of place in the pre-Cursed Earth stories. There's definitely worse covers to annuals and specials from this period of the prog's history, … Continue reading 2000AD Annual 1980: It’s wild… it’s sensational… it’s your future!
