The Christmas varient was by Bisley. ;)

Sorry, always get that pair mixed up.   :-[  Don't know why.  Perhaps because I've never been blown away by either.

AMAZING!

Love that Fabry wrap around - those smiling/gurning faces are superb!
Love the other cover too!
Love the line up!
A Bolland strip! 
A McMahon page too!

Can't wait for September - oh happy day!

Many congratulations to Commando Forces on getting that amazing piece of art too!

Stevie is totally down with new Nemesis providing it’s a flashback story ala Pat & Kev’s loving, brilliant  tribute to the late Ken Reid -- Ego Trip. For the overarching narrative of Nemesis the Warlock is circular in structure, so as  TB so rightly puts it, there is indeed nowhere else it can go.
In what way was Ego Trip a tribute to Ken Reid?  I'm not overly familiar with his work, though have looked up what he did, and can't work out a link to Ego Trip.

I'm assuming it's Ken's work on Faceache. I'm now remembering a 'Scrunge' sound effect when Nemesis distorts yer man's body but I think I'm probably making that up.

When I  did a bit of teaching about comics I did a session on what made them unique as an art form. I used O'Neil and Reid (Worldwide Weirdies) together as examples of the Grotesque that comics did so well.

I originally thought it was Devlin Waugh - vampire teeth, 'tache - but on the black and white copy it looks like it calls him a vampire accountant, which would make it Yorga from  Brigand Doom (!) Surely not?
Its Captain Constanza(Not sure on name) from Fiends on the Eastern Front aint it?

Glenn's margin notes (see Commando Forces' pic of the pencils) say it's a 'vampire accountant', which doesn't leave me much the wiser, TBH!

Dante's a bit odd-looking in the pencil one, isn't he?  Touch of Eugene Root about him.  But it's an arsom cover all the same.

I'm sure TMO has all in hand to push/promote/celebrate this milestone but can he please please put a D notice on any hack using POW! BIFF! SPLATT! style headlines  :D
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

this issue will feature the first sequential comics work by Bolland for 2000 AD since 1987
Any ideas what this may be?  A second Dredd tale, after the Ezquerra one?  I'm struggling to think of anything other than an early Future-Shock and Walter the Wobot, non-Dredd wise, in the pages of 2000AD...

I'm presuming something along the lines of the page he did for prog 500? - one of the interlinking

Better yet, Bolland on the return of Dash Decent!  Come on, Tharg - you know it makes sense.
