2000ad reprints by other publishers?
« on: 04 April, 2021, 07:56:01 AM »
Just reading 'The hanged man' reprints (published by Caliber comics) and I wondered if there are other examples of other (US) publishers re-printing material from 2000AD?

Just an idle thought.

Rogue Trooper: The War Machine was reprinted by Heavy Metal for some reason.

DC did some didn't they - though that was during my Wilderness years so not too clued up there.

IDW have of course done a load from Dredd, Sinister Dexter - they did original Rogue - not sure if they got around to reprinting.

Most the other stuff I can see is from Eagle / Quality / Fleetway / Rebellion.

Bloomin' heck just having a nosey on Barney and I did not realise how deep into the back catelogue Fleetway Quality went. When your reprintin Wireheads nothing is off limits!

I'm really looking forward to Space Spinner doing Wireheads so that Conrad can explain it to me. I don't hate it but I can't make much sense of it. ParaSites, mind, that's one I reserve real bile for.

thanks for this! Just what I was after - if you haven't see this book before then I've added it on to the blog this morning
