2000AD Prog 261: “AAAAAH!” The Beast of Blackheart Manor strikes

Two progs after the last one, Sam Slade gets another cover (and wasn't that first one the same as a previous star scan, or am I mixing up images?) Following on from the ads for a free packet of KP Griddes with New Eagle and another IPC title, 2000AD 's in on the act as … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 261: “AAAAAH!” The Beast of Blackheart Manor strikes

2000AD Prog 260: Zarjaz 5th birthday issue “Happy birthday, Earthlets!” TOTAL WAR

I think Robin Smith provides the Tharg for this cover, which also has a thumbnail sized version of the Rogue Trooper poster we'll be getting for the next four weeks (each section will have, respectively, Norts, tanks, Rogue and Southers). p.s. 2000AD Prog 1 - cover date: 26th February 1977.

Before we get in to the first story, I'll just … Continue reading Tornado Annual 1981: Black Hawk, Wolfie Smith and Johnny Lawless in spine-tingling full-length picture-stories!

Tornado No 5: Panic on the Pan-Martian Highway!

Looks like Ian Kennedy providing an Angry Planet cover, featuring the ship that Markham used to travel to Earth and back making a landing on a Martian highway. If I'm right on my guess, they really do get Kennedy to draw anything involving a flying vehicle! The Big Editorial carries on the office politics photostory … Continue reading Tornado No 5: Panic on the Pan-Martian Highway!

Tornado No 2: Your Multi-role Maydaypack’s got Codes; Tests; ID pass and all you need to form your own T.T. units!

Like the cover to the first issue, No 2 has a few panels from the stories inside, plugs the free gift, then shows a photo of Dave Gibbons as Big E. Boring! (sorry, Dave). The Big Editorial has another photo of Big E, this time flying over a cityscape (presumably the view from Kings Reach … Continue reading Tornado No 2: Your Multi-role Maydaypack’s got Codes; Tests; ID pass and all you need to form your own T.T. units!
