List of all his appearances and posters and whatnot, here.

Skimming through that, is the New Scientist story from a few years back in there?  Couldn't remember what the story was called, but I didn't find "scientist" when I searched.

No, for two reasons:

1. I only know about it because you just mentioned it.
2. My data only covers publications from the House of Tharg, m'lud. (Not strictly true, or even definable, but  there you go.)

[Starts looking for a copy of that New Scientist...]

Here you go - four years ago already!  Though the last two barely count as years...

2000AD announcement

I'm guessing the following is perfectly readable if you're subscribed to New Scientist.

If you don't fancy paying a fiver to read the story, here's a synopsis.

One more link from Down the Tubes, containing the all-important creator credits

Black Beth : Vengeance Be Thy Name (from the pages of SCREAM!) - paperback, 80 pages, 7th June 2022

A warrior with a name born of the black rage that filled her heart!

In a world of swords and sorcery, the evil tyrant Rassau discovers that he is destined to be killed by a fearsome warrior called Beth. Together with his men, Rassau seeks Beth out, destroying her village and killing all held dear to her. With the aid of a former warrior - the blind Quido - Beth becomes a skilled fighter and sworn enemy of all that is evil! She will not rest until her people are avenged!

This book contains both the original strip and the brilliantly resurrected stories that have been masterfully guided by writer Alec Worley and DC Comic's newest star, the astonishing Greek artist, DaNi!




Blas Gallego there, being the inspiration for "Blas in the Gallego system" (homeworld of the Gronk).  British Comics Wiki.

Ta!  For background, we have a life-size hallowe'en skeleton which is currently wearing a Judge helmet* and Rackle called them Judge Death the other day, which prompted me to ask whether she'd be up to knitting a Death helmet!


* Mega-City One Justice Department variety

I don't play computer games so can't comment, but I feel like I've heard there's a very good and scary Alien-based game out there from recent years, written by one Daniel Abnett.

I don't have any particular insight, but I believe a British software company released an Aliens Vs Predator game in 1994 which really helped them make their mark.  Whatever happened to that company? ;)

(which is to say I think the entire reason we're here on this forum dedicated to one of the longest-running British comics is because that game made enough money to make that company).

2000AD Prog 442: Sam Slade: Robohunted! “Shoot heem op!” “Yup!” “Yup!” “Yup!” “Yup!” Blat! Blat! Blat! Blat! Blat!

Slade takes to the water, Rogue warns of fireworks, Satanus produces fireworks (oh, and we get to see the face of the character voted best villain at the Eagle Awards), a Mega-vigilante for Mega-City One, the ultimate weapon and Bad Jack has a flashback.

And the story's not bad either. I seem to remember it never quite goes anywhere in the two later books, or at least fails to resolve, but there's a nice mix of classic dino-chomping on human action, alongside a none-too-subtle allegory of 'time change' terrorists as 'climate change' activists.


I mean, the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event takes place in the last book, but that kind of puts an end to any other plot development! ;-)

2000AD Prog 441: Flab Fever in the Future City! “Praise the lard!” Win Robotix monster machines!


A deal with the devil, Slade discharges from hospital, Tubbs makes it big, crime is a thing of the past and so is the Mean Team.

Joe black it was a sad day when I realised my prog slog had reached the sixth and final Adventure.

Tax Consultant - Visible Man has some memorable moments but there's a reason it was held back from the starting line-up and took a year to get published.

Soooo a random thought , but would a xenomorph lay an egg in a replicant?

They prefer the term 'artificial person'.

Very chuffed to find this weekend that I still had a copy of Night Dragon at my parent's. That was a real favourite back in the day - properly hard but probably the closest to a full RPG experience that the series ever got. I'm glad I'll get to play it without needing to fork out some 40 notes on Ebay.

I think I have that one - just checked my inventory and assuming it's correct then I do, but then I'm also mossing five of the other later books (which is more than I was expecting).
