As you can see from this cover by Cliff Robinson and Dylan Teague,this prog sees the return of Downlode’s own Finnegan Rapunzel Sinister,but where is his partner in crime,Dexter?You’ll have to buy the comic to find out!!
Super wraparound cover(Prog281,11Sep’82)by Carlos Ezquerra,neatly mirrored in this equally cool Judge Dredd Megazine front(Meg238,15Nov’05)from Dylan Teague.
(Incidentally the answers are-Mean-Machine Angel,top & Stan Lee aka “Deathfist”,below!)
Explosive cover art(Prog1220,22Nov’00)from relative newcomer,Dylan Teague.
Aboard the badly damaged,listing Battleship Potemkin,are Nikolai Dante and half sibling,Konstantin Romanov.
Pointing the Potemkin at New Moscow,determined to take the Tsar’s figurehead,the “Visage of Power”,down with the Romanov flagship,Konstantin finds time to taunt his half brother.
Determined to make him pay for killing Tsarina Julianna and threatening to do the same to her sister,Dante stabs Konstantin through the heart and flees the doomed Potemkin,allowing it to destroy the seemingly indestructible,New Moscow.

Ok.. here’s what I’m allowed to tell you at the moment…
Next years Cardiff Comic Expo is gonna be a 2 day event running 25-26th February 2012.
They’ve already announced Dylan Teague, Neil Edwards, Patrick Goddard and John M Burns but I’ve just been told I can reveal there will also be a special panel celebrating 2000AD’s 35th year with a “special guest list of creator droids”. Obviously some or all of the above will take part. There’s also a few other names I can’t mention at this stage till they are formally announced.
And presenting this panel…. Iz and Stace from the Megacast!
We’ll keep an eye on this and update with more details when they become available.
From Dylan Teague:
Another commission this time for Neil Sambrook. It features in my guest post for Scotch Corner Blog
The finished art for the cover of prog 1738, in shops this Wednesday. Art by Cliff Robinson, colours by Dylan Teague.
Over at 2000 AD Covers Uncovered, Pete Wells gives us the breakdown of the process that went into creating this cover of this week’s prog:
the able crew of Cliff Robinson and Dylan Teague bring us a dynamic cover that Ray Harryhausen (or if I was being cheeky, Michael Flatley) would be proud of!
The cover depicts (the aptly named, if again, I was being cheeky) Jack Dancer leading an army of invincible Greek warriors against the legions of Hell, in Ian Edgington and Steve Yeowell’s swashbuckling epic, Red Seas. Not bad timing in the week that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 opened at the box office, he’s knows what he’s doing, does Tharg!
