The problem with less, but longer strips is if you don't like one of them then the percentage of the Meg you don't like has increased (witness the reaction of many to American Reaper).  Just as long as it doesn't go back to fortnightly!

Having not read Starlord I found the Preying Mantis cut-aways maddening. It's so cool in a Thunderhawks way, and the only time we really see it in the progs is when it makes a brief cameo in Fall & Rise of Rojaws and Hammerstein.

You haven't missed much - even in Starlord it's mostly a background feature.

(and was very small-press in feel, though emulating the Valkyrie editions).

For those not familiar - the Dave McKean 'strip' is illustrations to go with Neil Gaiman's Villanelle (which was also in a later one-off, with piccies by somebody else).  May be misremembering, but I think the later publication was called The Great Exhibition of 1851.

As for claims this is a horrible place, I’m not sure where they come from. I dip into Facebook reasonably often, and I don’t really see many comments along those lines on the official 2000 AD page.

I did a double-take when I read that too - considering how much nasty, vindictive, sexist, etc stuff goes on in some of those groups.

What special is that?
Death Man: The Gathering in the 2017 Scream special was a Vigilant prototype/pilot. (Looking again at that special, I’d happily have The Sentinels in 2000 AD.)


Another vote for the Sentinels here.  Maybe have Max installed in one of them :-)

p.s. this is almost the busiest month the blog has seen since I started the slog three years ago (and then kicked it off again prior to my appearance on the Mega-City Book Club).

2000AD and Star Lord Prog 88: Hammer-stein and a Cast of Thousands in… Yesterday’s Hero He was a robot in a man’s war!!!

Hammerstein has his moment in the spotlight, beginning this prog.  Also, the ties between Ro-Busters and Invasion are laid down (if I can mix metaphors).

As much as it'd be good to include a female character, would I even recognise Modesty Blaise out of context?

I still have not read any MB but she is probably the most well known UK comic character in Europe. I have met comic collectors here who bring her up and assume I would have read it because I am British. In my local area (I live in Malmo, Sweden) we have a corner shop selling MB mugs and the supermarket does has some MB comics too but I would have to go to a specialist store to find anything 2000ad related.

I think MB is an easy sell because it can be described as 'a British comic about a female James Bond'. That and the artwork are probably enough to draw people in to give it a try.


I know the name, all right, but Mount Rushmore is a statue, and has to go on appearances.  Modesty Blaise was drawn (at least in some adventures) by John Burns, wasn't she?  Show me five women drawn by Burns in the 1970s and I doubt I'd know which was Modesty.

Just four the record Mount Rushmore is TOP FOUR! (Maybe six if you go by the Cursed Earth version with Carysr and that mutant guy)

(I was probably going by the Cursed Earth version, minus the mutie!)
