I've been reading The Mighty One and it's got me very excited for the first Judge Dredd Annual, MacManus talks about the creation of that pretty extensively. We were just starting out during the 40th, only on episode 18 or so. Luckily at our current pace we should be finishing up in time for the 50th anniversary! :D

Another great episode Fox and Conrad! I certainly can feel your love for the prog  :D
Just reread the first dredd annual, it certainly feels like a quantum leap compared to
the early 2000ad books. Can't wait to listen to that podcast!

Basically one more episode! Once Judge Death shows up you've gone from "Early 2000AD" to "Golden Age 2000 AD" :D

Great stuff again.

I think Alvin Gaunt is not just Alant Grant. I think it is Kevin Gosnell and Alan Grant but I can't remember where I got that from.

Yeah in my head (I'm guessing from Thrillpower Overload) Kevin Gosnell started the story but then past it onto Alan Grant to run with, hence the name...

According to Barney it was a Gosnell/Grant team up for the first prog, then just Grant for the remainder. I credited it as both of them for the first two episodes we covered Blackhawk but have stopped in more recent ones.

You can kind of see the team-up in the writer's name, ALan+KelVIN=Alvin, GrANT+GOsnell=Guant

I'm kind of arbitrarily deciding that once BH loses his soul it's all Grant :D

Ah, aboard the last launch to transfer off the HMS Hood before it was destroyed was a young Navy intelligence officer, Lieutenant Jon Pertwee, who later went on to present a prototype (and even more annoying) version of the Green Gross Code...

Well I've found where Conrad's been hiding.

The Green Cross Code is slightly improved by Mr. Pertwee, but reminds me a lot of Look Around You: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaI6kBVyu00

As a child once, I don't recall ever needing instruction on the hazards of getting smashed by a car. We had our fair share in the US that were crammed in between the precious cartoons. I'm trying to watch Skeleton Warriors, stop bothering me Crash Test Dummies!

We should have had some 2000 AD themed safety films.

Don't throw motor-cycles at people unless you're a MACH man.

While taking a bath in Volgan-occupied Britain, always remember your yellow ducky and shotgun.

Dinosaur awareness week.

And Dan Dare's please remember to blow up this planet before you leave the system.

Never leave the doghouse without your electronux and at night keep yourself seen
with a electroflare (warning may cause blindness). Just a quick question fox&Conrad,
how far in front are you with the podcast? Into 1981 yet?
