Prog 1 - Review
« on: 16 February, 2022, 06:14:26 PM »
He is old article related to a review of prog 1:

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

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.

"Quite frankly I have my doubts about the future of this comic ..."

Wow.  When was the last time someone was so far off the mark?  8-/

What a fantastic find. I find it hard to see Belardinelli reminding folks of Dave Cockrum!

Yup, I posted it on Twitter today, Dave H P sent it on last year, there is also a review for Starlord. The fanzine archive is an absolute treasure trove.

It was on 2000AD' twitter feed as a retweet from David McDonald@hiberniabooks.
