No sure if your going to keep going - so I'll not do spoilers but we know there's at least one a LOT earlier than that!

I too can't wait to find out how Pussyfoot 5 fare with the Ghost War in Jezreel's Eye.

As Funt says it's okay to play, I'll end the anticipation:

Dan Dare: Servant of Evil, prog 126 in 1979.



In fairness to Tharg, he doesn't make any kind of promise that Dan will be back, just that he'll be taking a break - and he wasn't wrong!

The year ahead preview at the start of 1981* does, however, promise that DD would be back.

(* I don't have the prog to hand but it'd be somewhere around 195.)

There's a "Things To Come In '81" page in prog 192 - that might be it.

We have another culprit and it is Brass Sun. Great series wish we can have more of it.

As the man said, it's Brass Sun, from prog 2072 in 1018:

Ampney Crucis has been a long time gone.

I had to look this one up to see how accurate The Corinthian was being (knowing his rather unorthodox eyesight issues), but sho'nuff, here's Pussyfoot 5, from prog 1256 in 2001:

Possibly I am not the one with the eyesight issues.

To be fair to tharg A Dan Dare did return in 1982 just not the 2000ad version and not in 2000ad itself

To be fair, I was also making an actual gender assumption - sorry!

Where we ever promises another series of Ampney Crucis? Even if is not true I still would like more of this
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Ampney really did end, even though I was a bit confused by how abrupt it seemed - they went for the Dallas solution of waking up in a different reality:

It wasn't that long ago that everyone was wondering if we were ever going to have a follow up to that cliffhanger in Stickleback, so I live in hope.
