2000AD Forum Art Comp. (Jun’14): Repanelled(Pt.1)

Apologies to all for the lateness of this forum art competition, I posted a couple of early entries, and promptly forgot to list the winners!

But Grud-on-a-greenie if there weren’t some drokkin’ great examples of classic Thrill-power on display!

So we decided to put up some of our favourites, that didn’t place, as well as the zarjaz winning entries, too!

  • Tharg’s Future ShocksA Close Encounter Of The Fatal Kind (Prog102,3Mar’79) - You could be forgiven for not being aware of ‘Alec Trench’, not many were, but he holds a special place in the annals of 2000AD… A frustrated writer - possibly an amalgam of all the prolfic script droids who wrote during the comic’s ‘Golden Years’! - who constantly strived to write the perfect “Future Shock”, or twisted short story to get him through the door of The House Of Tharg (at the time based in London’s ‘King’s Reach Tower' - The Mighty One's cunningly disguised space-going vessel!). Unfortunately, poor Alec was a terrible sci-fi writer, and after one rejection too many decided to throw himself off a moving train, clutching his awful stories and cursing Tharg's name! But ironically similar to one of his hackneyed plots, Trench is beamed aboard a passing spaceship! When the aliens begin to torture their captive, in order to test the limits of human pain, Alec realises he doesn’t want to die after all! Tricking the aliens into taking their picture, as you doTrench kills the aliens using their own laser technology. With the craft now in his hands,and this incredible experence still fresh in his head, the writer gets to work. Finally, clutching his script, Alec Trench sets the transportation device that brought him onboard, and beams hmself to Tharg's office at the top of King’s Reach Tower - however, eternal loser that he was, the co-ordinates are fractionally inaccurate, leaving himself treading air 20 storeys up,before falling to his death. Fortunately a creator droid catches the story from a window, and hands it in to Tharg the Mighty. The alien editor deems it 2000AD-worthy, and Alec Trench finally sees print, well not him personally as he was a large red stain on the pavement! - Great ending? It gets better: Alec Trench returns 3 years later - as a zombie! Despite this, a permanent portrait hangs in the script droids’ office, to inspire them to perservere like Alec Trench, or possibly just as a reminder of what happens when you cross The Mighty One! Original art: Carlos EzquerraRepanelled by Steve Longdon
  • Strontium DogThe Shicklegruber Grab (Progs182-88,18Oct-29Nov’80). Another Ezquerra classic, as Wulf Sternhammer, ‘norm' partner to mutant bounty hunter, Johnny Alpha, finally has enough of a time-napped Adolf Hitler and his rants, by using the ‘Sternhammer Silencer' - a dirty rolled-up sock shoved down the offending prisoner's throat! Carlos Ezquerra Repanelled by Stenum.
  • Chopper: Unamerican Graffiti (Progs206-07,4-11Apr’81). Mega-City One anti-hero, Marlon Shakespeare - aka Chopper - before becoming the world’s greatest skysurfer, was the city’s premiere scrawler (graffiti artist) as a young juve. Entering into a contest with mysterious rival, the Phantom (in reality a frustrated spray-painting droid), Chopper wns by scrawling his smiley face logo onto the Statue Of Judgement! Art: Ron Smith, Repanelled by Fungus - Banksy-style! 
  • Chopper 4 Oz! After reinventing himself as a world-class powerboarder, Chopper wins the illegal Supersurf 7, becoming World Champion & earning himself an eighteen stretch in the Iso-cubes! With rising feeling to release Chopper for the upcoming Supersurf 10, being held legally in Oz, against current 3-time World Champ, loud-mouthed Ozzer, Jug McKenzie,security is being tightened around their high profile prisoner. But as he and his property are being transferred to a maximum security block, accompanying Judge, Dredd is swarmed by pro-Chopper supporters, dropping the keys to Shakespeare's cuffs! Seizing his chance, the keys and his powerboard, Chopper guns his ‘board skyward, and makes his escape. Our hero manages to avoid the Judge patrols searching for him, visiting his best friend & fellow ‘surfer, ’Wipe-Out’ Jones, who has a spare suit, battery cells, some rations and the best wishes of 400 million citizens. But if the populace thought Justice Dept. were going to cave in to public demand, they obviously didn’t know the Judges! Dodging the gun towers of the West Wall, avoiding the numerous hazards of the Cursed Earth, Chopper finally makes it to the West Coast, careful to avoid Mega-City 2, to find himself high above the vast, seemingly endless Pacific Ocean, a raging storm and lashing rain surrounding him, he imagines he hears the voices of the downtrodden citizens of the city he hated cheering him on to Oz, to compete and win glory for them in Supersurf 10! Steeling himself for this impossble feat: over10,000 miles on little more than a flying plank, Marlon Shakespeare heads off to meet his destiny…! Art: Steve Dillon, Repanelled by Mike Rufian
  • ABC Warriors: The Red Death (Progs132-33,29Sep-6Oct’70). Hammerstein is given an horrific choice, from mystic robot knight, Deadlock - to kill a terrified child! Of course, this is no mere innocent, but an ancient evil, that has lain dormant on Mars for centuries, waiting for victims - like the recent human settlers who have disturbed this accursed menace from it’s slumber! Can the heroic Sgt. Hammerstein really overcome his programming and strike down a helpless child -no matter how evil? Art: Mick McMahon, Repanelled by RaggedMan.

Celebrating 20 Years Of Brit Pop! By Chris Weston
Perp #1: “Hey, Now, (What’s The Story?), it’s only Cigarettes & Alcohol!”
Dredd: “It’s A Crime.”
"But - I’m a Rock And Roll Star!”
"Button it, punk - do you think you’re going to Live Forever?”
“Definitely..Maybe!”
"Less of the lip, sonny! Control: two for the cubes, litany of crimes, drugs, cigarettes, lewd behaviour (possibly engaging services of prostitutes - check the girls, too) - seemed to want to go out in some kinda Shampagne supernova! Sentence to be determined, after we’ve checked for criminal records back in Brit-Cit!”
Perp #2: “Some Might Say, we’re Heroes!”
Dredd: “Listen Up, I Can Tell A Liar..
"Perps are on a holding post on the corner of Gallagher & Albarn, there’s a couple of Brits that need to be popped!
"Hey,creeps, Stop Crying Your Hearts Out - and Don’t Look Back In Anger, either!”
Perps #1&2 (whispering: “And yew said, ‘Let’s go ta Mega-City-frigging-One, and make ah fortunes!" "Shut it, our kid!”
Sincerest apopolgies to Chris Weston & a certain ’90s “Brit Pop" band, for all my terrible puns -I don’t think our current crop of script droids have anything to worry about!!

The Gallaghers later showed up in the back of a catch wagon during ‘The Pit’, in Prog 990:

Well spotted, Earthlet, you may also have noticed another Brit Pop legend in the same catch wagon: a rather nervous-looking Jarvis Cocker!

BRASS SUN // FLOATING WORLDS
The Orrery is a fully functional, life-size clockwork solar system: a clutch of planets orbiting a vast BRASS SUN via immense metal spars.

 NEW THRILL! BLACK SHUCK // PART ONE 
Scandinavia, 813 AD. Viking raiding parties continue to besiege the coasts of Northern Europe and the British Isles, returning with spoils and slaves.
