I love that prog 46 cover, all the enemies of the Star Slayers, strapped to stars orbiting their home planet! Great scifi stuff!

What a way to launch their new format (Dare story page on the front cover)!  There's also a few alien races I don't think we ever saw before or since on those stars...





Saturday's post - Prog 49: Death to the intruders! - Dredd is believed dead (not for the first time) and quits the force (not for the first time).  And probably the biggest character death we've seen in the prog so far...

Update to my graph showing the number of stories we've had from each Prog in the collections so far.

  • The spike at 1138 is the extended episode of Eurocrash which took over the whole of that issue.

Here's a spike at 1138 ;)

Sorry, is this the Political Thread or the "Incendiary Trolling Thread"?

Pretty sure that was a joke?

A bit of a damp squid of an ending for Kingmaker

It's been a while since I could read that bit of the prog - need to buy a magnifying glass, methinks!

Funny that idea about a 2000AD debating society should come up here, as the radio show discussed just started a new series this week:

And the beeb also has an article about a sub-reddit on similar lines: blog

... who decides what is a pure source and which are impure?

That's easy.  Torquemada and his Thought Police.

"Be pure, Be vigilant, Behave!"

Sleep is no refuge for impure thoughts!

You could title the Starlord, and inevitable Tornado, podcasts of the future Re:Merge. Because, you know, they both merge with 2000ad.

Though in the terminology of the time they were 'matched' (as in 'hatch, match and dispatch') - so that'd be re-match...

Anybody else notice who did the storyboarding?

Can't think of a name for the Star Lord podcast

Star Lord Trek.

I had a Star Lord of the Rings one as well, but I didn't write it down and now I've completely forgotten it...

Who are you quoting here?  The only mention I see on this thread is your reply!

Thanks Conrad - I'll update the wiki!

I'm going to continue (to attempt) to update daily, scheduling the posts for 11 (GMT) or 12 (BST) each day, but I'll probably only update this thread at weekends.

Prog 44: Too late, Judge Dwedd *sob* this is our last Christmas!

Gene Wilder's death (from three years ago) is trending again (just to pre-empt anybody seeing it and not noticing the date).

That said, I've just realised that the Great Beard, the nickname of a writer who is the best in his field, is a play on the Great Bard, the nickname of a writer who is the best in his field.

Would the Great Beard also be known as 'The Original Author' when his work is adapted for film?

Yesterday's post was Prog 42: Sorry fellas, but with these odds I’m not sticking around to play games with that stinkin alien…  Dredd goes to the Moon, but due to the Supercover Saga we don't get any pictures of something like that on the cover.

Prog 43: Dial M for Monster - we finally get to the end of the Supercover Saga, so the covers can have something to do with the contents of the prog again!

I'm stealing Space Spinner 2000's idea of including details of where you can read these stories if you don't have the original progs and Mega-City Book Club's idea of grail pages for each prog.  Concepts stolen without permission!
