2000AD Prog 424: Midnight in the Mega-City… Surfing on the street! “Crazy skyhog!”

Fear falls first, Sláine versus the Nazis (not really), the mice are coming, a new passtime in the Mega-City (the cover kind of gives that away), the Norts flog a dead horse and the bounty hunters finish their big bust.

2000AD Prog 423: Dark Judges in Crash Dorm 2! “Ssssleep forever!” Anderson’s nightmare!

Things hot up in the Grand Hall of Justice, Sláine and Murdach's balancing act, Judge amok, Rogue in disguise (as a rhino) and the bounty hunters face the Howlers

2000AD Prog 422: The grave face of future war “We’re unique!” “We’re genetic!” “We’re dead!”

Anderson prepares to limbo dance with the Dark Judges, Murdach has a pique of jealousy as Sláine fights cyborgs, a perp has a day out until a different cyborg scares him back to the cubes, the biochips have a chance to shine and Alpha tracks down the brainwraith.

2000AD Prog 421: Examination special: cadet in control! “Okay, Brisco – what do I do now?”

Twenty years on Titan for Anderson? Alpha gets a break, a cadet faces an interesting situation and Myrddin gets macrocosmic.

2000AD Prog 420: Sláine: El hath no fury… “Kill the hu-man!” Cosmic competition! Win the Henshin robos!

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.

Judge Dredd Annual 1985: He is the law in Mega-City!

Judge Dredd looks a bit green around the gills in this portrait while the almost full-length pic of the lawman does a jazz hand while firing in this Carlos Ezquerra cover. Meanwhile a ruddy Mega-Cityscape merges in to big Dredd-head's helmet. On the other side of the front cover, Carlos Ezquerra is back to present … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1985: He is the law in Mega-City!

2000AD Sci-Fi Special 1983: Featuring Judge Dredd plus! Rogue Trooper future war hero! Return of the Jedi colour preview Tharg the Mighty as you’ve never seen him before!

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! Rogue Trooper future war hero! Return of the Jedi colour preview Tharg the Mighty as you’ve never seen him before!

2000AD Prog 307: Hag’s Beasts!

Steve Dillon's Judge Dredd cover contains just Dredd and four of Trapper Hag's bounty beasts (that's what Hag called them the previously episode). It's a well-drawn image but too plain for me. Tharg's Nerve Centre contains a few letters from earthlets who didn't read their progs closely enough before writing in, and one from a … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 307: Hag’s Beasts!

2000AD Prog 306: “Get this welded, pal!” BZZZ-ZZT!

Not your usual cover, as this Ian Gibson Robo-Hunter contribution is viewed through a chain-link fence. Tharg's Nerve Centre opens with news that the Mighty One appeared on The Tube (eighties British teen and twenty-something music programme for those in the wrong country or decade to have heard of it) and the letters are all … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 306: “Get this welded, pal!” BZZZ-ZZT!

2000AD Prog 305: “You’re under arrest, creep!” Dredd puts the bite on bounty-hunters!

Steve Dillon's back on the cover for the first time since Prog 226 and (getting ahead of myself) also back on Dredd for the first time since Block Mania. Tharg's Nerve Centre is reduced to half-size again, so that IPC can plug another comic (this time it's Whoopee!) barely leaving space for an earthlet to … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 305: “You’re under arrest, creep!” Dredd puts the bite on bounty-hunters!
