2000 A.D. ANNIVERSARY 'POT LUCK' COVER GALLERY...

Well, it's not exhaustive, but here's a selection of Anniversary
2000 A.D. covers from over the years.  I may have some more,
but these are the only ones I could find at short notice.  How many
of them do you have?  And if you've got any not seen here, send
them to me at once.  I'll give them a good home - honest!







This one's still in its cellophane, hence the wrinkles

Well, I had several copies of #500 too and one copy of #600, but I then soon started getting a bit bored with it. Zenith was the last strip that interested me, subsequent strips never grabbed me!
ANYWAYS, for your interest (?),here are my top ten favourite 2000 AD strips: -
1. Judge Dredd (+Anderson)
2. Strontium Dog (+Durham)
3. Nemesis
4. Slaine
5. Harry 20
6. Rogue Trooper
7. Sam Slade
8. Ace Trucking
9. Meltdown Man
10. ABC Warriors

I never really had any favourite strips (as in characters) in the comic. Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper perhaps, once I started lettering them. What did you think of the JD strip I posted a couple of posts back? The one about the cat and the guinea pig.

It was a bloody good tale, Kid, never seen it before and, at last, Mega City One has passed a law which I agree with!
Anyway, as you've put me in the mood, I'll also give you my top ten Dredd storylines!
1. Blockmania / Apocalypse War
2. J. Death / Dark Judges / Necropolis
3. Cursed Earth / Fink Angel / Return Of Mean Machine
4. J. Cal
5. J. Child / City Of The Damned
6. Judgement Day
7. Return Of Rico
8. Chopper / Oz
9. Mechanismo
10. A Tale Of Two Cities ( unpublished story )

I have a vague memory of lettering a 'Necropolis' logo (in fact, I think I used it in a flyer, but it's not at hand to check) - wonder if it was the same one?

Can't find a pic of the UK JD strip from Prog #674, but if I find one, I'll send you a link. I first read the story in the US Fleetway comic books ( THESE were good quality comics, - card covered, like today's UK comic books! ) I regretted selling them, so I bought it again as.a graphic novel! I did this will all my favourite Dredd stories!

Take a look at this post, JP: http://kidr77.blogspot.com/2012/02/is-art-being-taken-out-of-comics.html - you'll see the Necropolis logo that I did.

John Pitt said...

Still haven't been able to find a scan of JD in Prog #674, but, if I ever find one, I'll let you know if it was yours that they used!

Kid said...

I reckon it probably was, JP. Although Tom Frame lettered Dredd in 2000 A.D., I was regarded as the guy to come to when logos were needed.
