1928 contents

Tharg bigs up Free Comic Book Day. I’m late writing this article… FCBD has already been & gone, I did do an article before the event though to publicise the signings that Tharg publicised here…

Nice Mark Harrison cover, see more about it on 2000AD Covers Uncovered.

Judge Dredd: Enceladus: New Life Part 5

Script: Rob Williams
Art: Henry Flint
Letters: Annie Parkhouse

Judge Dredd Created by John Wagner & Carlos Ezquerra
First Appearance – Prog 2

The Sov’s arrived last Prog and they mean business. Quite what Dredd will say about this is anyone’s guess – he won’t be happy I bet.

The script is interesting and the art brilliant. I’m fine with this kind of ‘Dredd Lite’ story but I am aware some fans aren’t. We do reach a mid-season break with this episode as I thought we were heading towards last Prog.

Script: Arthur Wyatt
Art: Jake Lynch
Letters: Ellie De Ville

Orlok was created by John Wagner, Alan Grant & Steve Dillon
First appearance Prog 236

The action in the Radback remains quirky. Orlok isn’t quite so mean somehow even though he is being mean.

You can read more about Orlok in my article Who is Orlok?

Johnny has a problem with picking up Stix. Not such a problem with Precious Matson of course.

As I said last Prog this story ticks all the S/D boxes.
