2000AD Prog 188: "AAAAAAAAHHH!" The tide of terror that swept the Galaxy continues in… Return to Armageddon

You can be ugly, but it'll cost ya!

Plus, the music industry takes notice of 2000AD.

2000AD Prog 192: "Splundig vur ho, ho, ho!"

Betelgeusian christmas greetings are rather similar to Polish ones.

Project X looms - but I can't remember what it is, if it actually does come to anything - this is the year that the Judge Dredd Boardgame* was published, and that Dredd started in the Daily Star**.

*As seen on Labyrinth
**Though that was dumped on editorial by management at the last minute, so it can't be that.

2000AD Prog 193: Judge Dredd – Voted Britain's top comic character!

Judge Dredd presents a mystery antagonist - who is The Fink?  (yes, I know we all know now).

2000AD Prog 194: 1981 is the Year of the Alien!

The history of street football.  Turns out that the Fink is the fifth member of the Angel Gang.

2000AD Prog 195: Return to Armageddon

It's all about nudity and eating (of the cannibalistic variety) in both Strontium Dog and Meltdown Man.

2000AD Prog 198: "By the right… SWARM!" Revenge of the Thrill-Suckers!

We're in the age of Tharg stories (and I'd maintain good Tharg stories).

Yeah the Tharg stories worked just fine at the time, this one and others tickled a young Squaxx brain - including mine. We didn’t even get the in-jokes... good example of tales never intended to be analysed and released in multiple formats, ad nauseum .......  🤔

2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! "I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!"

Prog 200 - not a jumping-on prog, with mostly continuing stories, except for one.  The tale of Kreelmans Nelson Bunker and John.
