2000AD Prog 445: Johnny and Wulf Get Nailed! “Scratch two dogs!”

"No, I AM your brother!" as we say a temporary goodbye to Nemesis and a longer goodbye to Termight. Peace in our time on Milicom. The Mega-Citizenry takes the fall. Security Pods chase the Mean Team through the skies of Artificon. Alpha and Sternhammer are back - but for how long? It's time for the Ragnarok Job!

2000AD Prog 444: Welcome Home, Rogue! “Any last requests?” “Yeah… MISS!”

Purity's flashback, Candida's flashback, now it's the turn of Thoth and Satanus! Mystery hands are going to make Rogue war. Judge Dredd: I am the... love? The Mean Team go on the run and being psychic isn't all it's cracked up to be.

2000AD Prog 401: Free Panini Dune album (not available to overseas readers) The return of Rogue Trooper “Here are my boys… make them into MEN!”

A Cam Kennedy cover heralds the return of Rogue (after only a few weeks away) and the long-awaited regening of the chips. Tharg's Nerve Centre trails the new prog by telling us that part 2 of the '85 Calendar will appear - and then announces that part 1 is appearing in this, like, prog. No … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 401: Free Panini Dune album (not available to overseas readers) The return of Rogue Trooper “Here are my boys… make them into MEN!”

2000AD Prog 386: “The sentence is thrill-power…” “The sentence is…” “DEATH!” Tharg on trial!

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!

2000AD Prog 381: It’s zarjaz! It’s scrotnig! It’s ghafflebette! Mutie and the beast… “It’s not real! It’s all in my mind!”

King Carlos' cover shows Kreelman in quite a strange mask while he tortures his son... Good use of colour by (presumably) Tom Frame to separate out Kreelman and depict him in blue lines instead of black lines, highlighting the illusory nature of the torture. Tharg's Nerve Centre is very limited, just containing a Thargnote, the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 381: It’s zarjaz! It’s scrotnig! It’s ghafflebette! Mutie and the beast… “It’s not real! It’s all in my mind!”

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!
