Anderson's back! Tharg's Food-Shocks. What is Sláine's type? Dark Judges at large! Is Dredd needed? Nah! Bounty hunting is thirsty business.
Dogs die in hot Claras, the worm is about to turn, don't be that person at the party, Rogue goes underground (what's Nu?) and don't split the helltrek!
Toby gets some exercise, White Cloud investigates a colony, a kneepad seller gets hunted down, media empires make the news and Rudd fits in a quick marriage.
Bryan Talbot puts Torquemada on the cover about a year after the last time (that time a phantasmal and victorious Kevin O'Neill piece). Music Centre continues the promotion of Mutants in Mega-City One by running some reviews from various sources (The Galactic Guardian has a typo "I lovde it"). The rest of the Nerve Music … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 404: Torquemada dresses to kill! FWOOSHH! “Your fireballs cannot harm me now, Nemesis… repent and die!”
This Brian Bolland cover finally heralds thre reveal of the long-touted Mega-plan.... ...though doesn't reveal enough that Tharg can't still tease it in the Nerve Centre as an answer to a letter from an earthlet about members of Madness being fans of 2000AD - have they forgotten Prog 272 already? It even made it on … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 403: Mega-plan revealed: judge gets criminal record! “I’ll make those creeps sing!” Inside! Fink Brothers beat the rap?
Steve Dillon is back on City of the Damned, and it starts on the cover as the Mutant gets to grips with McGruder.

Otherwise, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 397: ++City of the Damned – let chaos reign!++ “Gaze upon the DOOM that was foretold!”
Kevin O'Neill provides a new cover for the debut of Nemesis the Warlock Book IV. I say 'new' because the story within, while previously unpublished, was created some time before this prog was published. I'll probably cover that when Tharg does - in three prog's time. This prog has a cover date of the 13th … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 387: Nemesis the Warlock in The Gothic Empire
One of my two favourite depictors of griminess takes to the cover as Eric Bradbury shows the Dictators of Zrag dressed as judges about to execute the Mighty One (my other favourite grime artist is Mike Dorey). Tharg's Nerve Centre has Tharg send pin-ups of Judge Dekker and Venus Bluegenes to two separate troops - … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 386: “The sentence is thrill-power…” “The sentence is…” “DEATH!” Tharg on trial!
Kim Raymond brings us another Judge Dredd cover. In case we couldn't guess, the caption tells us the title of the Dredd story inside (Gator).

RRRRRRRRR ‘Gator!
Cam Kennedy put in a quick succession of three Sláine covers (even though the story they illustrated was drawn by Mike McMahon). McMahon has a go at a character better associated with Kennedy in this cover featuring Sláine, Dredd and Rogue. This, and the Dredd annual, were the first annuals I read (from the House … Continue reading 2000AD Annual 1985
