That reveal in prog 107 that the robots have both killed all the humans AND ARE NOW MADE OF SOLID GOLD is one of my favorite moments in all of 2000AD. My god what a twist! April was my top month of '79, there's so much great stuff going on that even Servant of Evil can't bring it down :D

Following Pat Mills' revisiting of earlier stories in recent (well a few years back now) ABC Warriors stories, I'm still holding out for a Freedome story.

All together now ... awwwwwww! How cute is this?


There was me thinking it was going to be a link to the wildlife photography article.

Technically, it's a Karen Holloway drawing that's only been 'coloured' by Glenn Fabry.

Let the detailed, nuanced discussion of collaboration in art and the undervalued contribution of creators other than writers and artists begin.

I'd be interested to see the pencils of that, to see how much each creator brought to the finished product - there's something about the texture that reminds me of Glenn's Diceman covers from the mid-eighties.

While I'm here...

2000AD and Starlord Prog 108: The doctor will examine you now… Say ah… Aaaaah!

Deaths of loads of characters in Dredd and a new Chief Judge (so that tells you who one of the deaths is going to be).  The aftermath of the death of a main character in Robo-Hunter (albeit one who didn't say too much, but they've been in the majority of episodes).  More death in Strontium Dog, though the victim gets better!  Brian Bolland is back - but for an advert for Palitoy Star Wars figures!  And a dramatic death in Ro-busters...  I just realised I missed off the ? from X27?'s name - better add those when i get home

Tornado No 3: Who is Storm? Where is he from?

Should the Tornado entries not have a Tornado logo rather than a 2K one...?

That's 2K and SL :-)  Have removed the stray logo - though, as with Starlord, I've found it difficult to get a decent quality logo to use...

New thrill (can we call them thrills when they're in non-2000AD?) starts, Benkei ends, everything else continues.

There we go. Yellowhammer. Remember that this ISN’T the WORST CASE no-deal Brexit scenario.

edit: actually, according to those in the know, it's not martial law-related, it's just a thing about there being no petrol for 2 weeks and a minimum of 2000 British jobs being lost overnight.

Well, we've already lost about a quarter of a million jobs - that's a conservative estimate - others put it around the 400,000 mark.

And a boatload of algorithmic and manual processing obv.

As was said at the 40th, Rebellion are literally getting state-of-the-art 'droids' to recover hundreds of thousands of pages of 20th century British comics...

Tornado No 2: Your Multi-role Maydaypack’s got Codes; Tests; ID pass and all you need to form your own T.T. units!
Shadowy hands kill all they can... ;)  Not one but two Superman rip-offs!

2000AD and Starlord Prog 107: Johnny Alpha Enters The City of Lost Souls
Judge Fargo, 2001 - 2051.  Sam Slade gets knocked unconscious and wakes up a while later, with no memory of what happened while he was unconscious (we'll find out in about four and a half years time).  The Genesis of the Robots!

Just wondered if anyone who bought this book also has the old large-size Titan editions and how the repro compares between the two. Are the old editions still superior?

I have - I'll check when I get home.

I mentioned it on this thread, but without giving the scalper publicity.

Quite bizarre to think that a “Graphic Novel No. 6” is the only print this thing’s ever had, as far as I can tell. At 64 pages, it’s slim. I do wonder how people would respond to a new hardcover that literally reprinted it in two versions, and then added a bunch of sketches and interviews (if the former exist and the latter are viable). That said, Miracleman HCs sold well enough, and those were quite a lot of not-strip.

Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill were among those disappointed when it wasn't reprinted a year or two ago - so I'd imagine they'd be more than happy to contribute.

It's still quite hard for me to believe that the remarkably sophisticated and still very readable Fall & Rise... ran alongside the tired drivel of later Dan Dare... they feel at least a decade apart.

The Dave Gibbons artwork is a large part of why it's even readable...
