Prog 0 - AD2000

(1/4) > >>

Richard:
My subscribers' copy of Prog 0 arrived today! It's quite nice. It's slightly bigger than today's size prog, and has glossy paper all the way through. Inside the cover Tharg explains that this is the 1976 dummy for what became 2000AD, and compares its contents with the final line-up in prog 1.

That's almost the only text in the comic, since the dummy didn't bother with lettering except the titles. But it's actually nice to see the art on its own. It starts with Invasion 1988, as it was originally called, then Harlem Heroes, then Shako!

Then there is a colour double-page spread of Dan Dare (not by Bellardinelli). Then there's MACH 1, which has the same level of violence that got Action cancelled. It's all rounded off by The Visible Man, where the last panel of the story takes up the entire back cover as he reacts to his invisible skin -- my favourite illustration in the comic!

This was a great idea, and I'm glad it was done properly: full size and quality paper. Thanks Tharg!

Leigh S:
Can't wait to get mine!

I'm intrigued as to the "authenticity" of this - I've seen mock ups of this using the known material that was due to be used, but I'm hoping this is not so much guess work as it is a straight reproduction of the existing copy of the mock up

Well I wasn't expecting that! I'm a double sub but get the Meg digitally so when opening what I thought was this weeks Prog I was at first surprised as it seemed bigger than expected ... then to my surprise I realised it was Prog 0!

As Richard says its a really, really nice product. Oversized, nice paper and looks pretty much spot on. Absolutely chuffed to have this, so much so that I've not even thought of the disappointment of it not being a Saturday Prog.

THANK YOU THARG!

I'm only a single subbed to The Megazine so didn't expect this to see this at all, but I'm most grateful that I did!!!
Thanks Thargy baby!!!!!

Colin YNWA:
This is as good a place as anywhere to share this I guess. Its not the Prog 0 but I was at a nerd fair today and stumbled across this lovely little thing



Now I 'have' this in the Progs but for some reason I was very excited to have it all folded properly and done right without having to cut up my Progs. I mean for 75p (with a Judge Dredd Chocolate candy stick wrapper that had been lovingly removed) who wouldn't!
