2000AD Prog 419: Fear, Fire, Death & Mortis! “There’ss no sstopping uss now!”

Anderson dead (yeah, right) as the Dark Judges jump to another dimension, Sláine also jumps dimensions, ending up els-where, something smells at the Necropolis, hulks get lit and Alpha should have taken care of the robots (one way or another).

2000AD Prog 417: Alpha: Back on the Trail! In the Badlands of Burrito the Big Bust is Go! “Oot o’ the way there! Stronty Dug comin’ through!”

Anderson visits the museum, Sláine visits the 11th century, Dredd visits a bar, Rogue visits a rocky outcrop and the Stronts visit the Burrito badlands.

2000AD Prog 416: Zarjaz 8th birthday issue! Win! commodore 64 computer systems & Valiant Robo-Turtles! New mega-thrills! Alpha – Strontium Dog! “The future is here!” Anderson – Psi Division!

Anderson Psi Division makes her debut (well, in her own series), the worm turns (did I use that pun already?), another night, another graveyard shift, Rogue and the boys are all at sea and a bounty hunting duo become a bounty hunting trio.

2000AD Prog 415: Free inside! 6 ‘Masters of the Universe’ stickers! Bright eyes… burning like fire! Big prizes to be won in KP Alien Spacers competition!

Halo doesn't meet with an old friend in a bar, Ukko completely fails to comfort Tlachtga and we re-meet Elfric, Primo gets a bit hot-headed, the adviser advises Rogue and Crustacia scuttles off.

2000AD Prog 414: Master of Mega-City One! Judge Dredd

Halo goes swimming and dancing, Tlachtga has a blast, a juve is primed and ready to explode, the bats come home to roost for the G.I.s and Bud doesn't quite make it to the New Territories.

2000AD Prog 411: Sláine is back in Time Killer!

Halo finds out something about her past, Sláine finds out something about Earth's past, Dredd finds out where the Hunters Club meet, Rogue finds out that Norts aren't the only aliens and we find out that Rudd falls for one of the oldest tricks in the book.

2000AD Prog 405: UNGH! Dredd vs. Dredd …and one must die!

We see the writer of the Ballad of Halo Jones (it's not Alan Moore), Rogue goes rogue, zombie Dredd fights time-travelling Dredd, but then zombie Dredd becomes a time-travelling Dredd, Torque goes through changes and the Helltrekkers meet their next challenge (the Nebbs are involved).

The Fink Brothers: Mutants in Mega-City One

There's been a few 2000AD-related songs released already, but this was the first official one, and has artwork from an established 2000AD artist, as befits that.

2000AD Prog 393: Move over, Ron – Slippery Jim di Griz is back! The Stainless Steel Rat… …for President!

A wraparound cover from King Carlos - it seems like ages since the last one - Umm, Synthi Sausage, I'd guess? We won't have to wait too long for the next one! This heralds the start of the return of the Stainless Steel Rat (though not The Stainless Steel Rat's Return, which never got adapted). … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 393: Move over, Ron – Slippery Jim di Griz is back! The Stainless Steel Rat… …for President!

2000AD Prog 391: Q: What does a dinosaur call a Helltrek? HRRRAAIII! A: Meals on Wheels!

Robin Smith provides the a Helltrekkers cover - I'm liking his rendition of the tyrannosaurs! Tharg's Nerve Centre opens with an unexpected tribute to Albert Robida - a French artist considered to be an early pioneer of sci-fi / steampunk style illustrations, from before either term had been invented. Tharg says he suggested a tribute … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 391: Q: What does a dinosaur call a Helltrek? HRRRAAIII! A: Meals on Wheels!
