So, my tuppence worth:

First place: Greg Staples (2019) As others have said, simply an iconic image from a truly amazing painter. A masterpiece.
Second place: Alex Ronald (2016) Lovely and bright, channeling his inner MacNeil (even though he was meant to be channeling his inner Robin Smith!)
Third place: Clint Langley (2013) It’s a nun in a gas mask. Any questions?

Honourable mentions: Jake Lynch (two Great Dredd covers,) JOHN McCrea and Matt Fergusson for their excellent Mechanismo covers, Dave Kendall (Fear), Cliff (everything!) D’Israeli for the ships coming through the smoke on 2032, Chris Weston (Pin), INJ Culbard (Eye in the Sky), Neil Roberts (2 stunners this year!) Karl Richardson (Demonslayer,) Trevallion (incredible consistency,) Luke Preece (2048 Dredd, loved it!) and Simon Davis (all the buggers!)

*Blush* You’re right Steve. If only there was some kind of credit box and two different panels that made it more explicit!  :-[

My review is over on the 2000 AD and beyond site here: https://2000adandbeyondsite.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/2000ad-prog-2061-review-2/

For my own amusement, I've compared each thrill to a Christmas song to give an indication of my thoughts and enjoyment of each!

I left the Starlord story last because I'm going on a rant.
I hated this story.
I hate this story with a passion.
I am one of the old guard. I was there at the start of 2000ad and I was there at the start of Starlord. I read both and I enjoyed both. And as such I despise the hatchetjob that Kenneth Neimand has done on Starlord and to a lesser extent on Tharg himself. Neimand would have been much better advised to do a tribute to a character from the founding days of British sci-fi comics instead of what twisted take he came up with. I am not a fan of retconns but this was on a whole different level.

I may be wrong, but with the nostalgic vibe I kinda assumed that Kenneth Neimand is Keith Richardson. I really enjoyed the Starlord story, the radicalisation angle made me chuckle.

Rian Johnson said that there’s certain things they’ve chosen to share and things that they have categorically kept out of the trailer - which is obvious I suppose. Mark Hamill has also asked people not to spoil the film.

I have a really good feeling about it and can’t bloody wait! 8 days and counting!!!
