2000AD Prog 23:The Plague from Pluto!

Prog 23 is here, and sees Brian Bolland back with one of his best covers to date.  Brian gets his full name on the cover – I wasn’t paying attention in previous weeks so this might be a first.  693 more words

2000AD Prog 22: Supercover 4 - Mutant on the Metro!

The cover pictures a mutant apparently hiding from an alien spaceship in Hammersmith tube station.  No idea what this is about, but a quick flick shows I’ll have to wait to find out.  971 more words

2000AD Prog 21: Supercover 3 - Emergency! The Alien Machine is about to Destroy our World!

Apparently this cover was provided by Trevor Goring, who would later be responsible for some fantastic, atmospheric Future Shocks, and Kevin O’Neill, whose work on Nemesis the Warlock Book III was largely responsible for my continuing with 2000AD and reading comics past childhood.  842 more words

2000AD Prog 20: Supercover 2 - The Man who Stole the Stars!

This post has been in ‘drafts’ for nearly three months now, so probably about time I finished it and published…

The Supercover story on prog 20 is ‘The Man Who Stole the Stars!’, which is fitting as when I read this, on the day that his death was announced, it called to mind the late David Bowie’s songs ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ and ‘Starman’ (amongst other space-themed songs). 611 more words

2000AD Prog 19: Supercover 1 - A Robot's Best Friend...

This prog sees a departure from the usual style of cover, as (I believe) Pat Mills wanted to get Brian Bolland on board, but the artist was still on contract to produce comics for Nigeria.  1,351 more words
