Zenith returns in Prog 2050!
« on: 13 September, 2017, 06:53:38 pm »
I'm guessing it's just a pin-up or starscan. The face looks like Steve Yeowell - but is it? Great line up on the strips. Tharg's mighty organ swells with thrillpower!
The full line-up for Prog 2050:

JUDGE DREDD // ICON by TC Eglinton (w) Colin MacNeil (a), Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
ROGUE TROOPER // A SOLDIER’S DUTY by James Robinson (w) Leonardo Manco (a) Simon Bowland (l)
GREY AREA // HOMELAND SECURITY by Dan Abnett (w) Mark Harrison (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
SLÁINE // ARCHON by Pat Mills (w) Simon Davis (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
INDIGO PRIME // A DYING ART by John Smith, Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Simon Bowland (l)
SINISTER DEXTER // DOWN IN THE DUMPS by Dan Abnett (w) Steve Yeowell (a) john Charles (c) Ellie De Ville (l)
THE FALL OF DEADWORLD // HOME by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)

My guess is, (and i have no inside track here) Zenith will appear in SINISTER DEXTER as Steve Yeowell is the artist on it?

what do you think

That makes sense. And would explain the image framing of Zenith.

I guess it's too much to ask for another series from Morrison and Yeowell?   :-\

Was really excited when I saw the promo image, but then i found this thread and saw those terrifying words "Sinister" and "Dexter".

Really? That thing is *still* running? Jeez, way to totally burst my bubble.

Call me when Phase V is out.

Until Phase V is commissioned by the mighty Wizard Grant and Ye-Owl droids this will do just fine, anything to see the cocky bastard back in the prog.

This thread is cruelly misleading.

That would be cute. When I saw the advert I figured it would be a poster or some such.

Looks like a PR droid in a T-shirt.

Yup! :think:
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

This just in;

2000AD PR Manager gives personal "F*ck You" to former employee Grant Morrison by commissioning artist Steve Yeowell to portray him cosplaying as Zenith.

I for one don't want a new series of Zenith.

Now I absolutely love it, but it's done. Let's not do a "Robo-Hunter" on it.

Always glad to have Sinister Dexter in the Prog. I think it would be fun if the boys are engaged to deal with a middle aged, slightly overweight, balding, washed up former pop star.

Zero chance of that. It's either a pin-up, or a throwaway gag in the Sin/Dex that Yeowell is drawing.
