Thanks for the votes of confidence!

Prog 64: Watch the Sky! UFO – reader’s report

The last episode of M.A.C.H.1!  A new sci-fi comic out, on the same day as Prog 64!

It would have made more sense if I'd posted the Prog 64 link in the same post as the Star Lord No 1 link.  Watch the Stars, child soldiers!  In other news, the first appearances of great duos Johnny and Wulf, and ro-Jaws and Hammerstein!

Prog 65: Wuuuuuuuurgh! Zero is Back!
Other than the obvious, Dave Gibbons gets to practice drawing giant alien tentacles.  Also, the return of the  third ever set of villains we saw Dredd face.  Also also - one parody of Evel Knieval dies, but don't worry, there'll be another along in a different strip by the end of the comic.

Prog 65 was originally published on the same day as:

Star Lord Issue 2: You’ll never be the same after reading it!

Mind Wars starts and a few long-running elements in Strontium Dog and Ro-Busters are introduced.

On the same day the following were published:
Prog 66: I think I smell a rat!

Dave Gibbons draws huge tentacled aliens, I can't tell the different between Death Planet of the Damned and Massimo Belardinelli appears in the crowd of Inferno.

Star Lord No. 3: Fight your own Star Battles

I take extra care not to confused the tale of people stranded on a deadly planet with other stories that are tales of people stranded on deadly planets, Dave Gibbons moonlights on Ro-Busters as well as this week's Dan Dare and a* gronk appears.



* not the Gronk, you understand...

Cover date: 3 June 78 (so on the shelves the week before that):

Prog 67: MACH Zero in… Darts of Death!

Walter returns!  Oh joy!  Though the even bigger news is the appearance of a certain President of the United States...

Star Lord No 4: Inside! Part One of a mind-stretching sci-fi game! It stars Strontium Dog… it’s called Hell Planet… it’s not for cowards!

The Nazi issue!  Whether you're in on a hostile planet in another dimension or Golders Green, you can't escape time or space Nazis!

Prog 68: Ssssssssss Clay, now you’re gonna… DIE just like A…Artie!

MACH Zero goes all Dickensian, Walter ends, Dredd saves President Robert L Booth's life (Smooth Booth in this story, not Bad Bob Booth).

Star Lord No 5: This is gonna be a bad one, Hammer-Stein!

Is Doctor Varn from Star Lord's Mind Wars related to Lorna Varn from 2000AD's Death Planet?  After these two stories end, will there be any more of the Varn family in the pages of 2000AD, Star Lord or related publications?
 Questions like these won't be answered in my blog post (or anywhere).
