Prog 25: Mega-City... Murder by Meteor!

Can’t say I can identify the artist who provided this Supercover.  Some parts are reminiscent of Belardinelli, but it’s impossible to tell past the heavy colouring.  1,008 more words

Prog 24: Get a Load of this Ancient Water-God Drawing!

Involved with the prog since the beginning, Kev O’Neill is much more visible in this prog – getting both a cover and a three-episode story (apparently written and drawn by the art droid).  828 more words

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.  714 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
