Sadly with this cover(Prog2006,14Dec’05)we reach the end of Kev Walker’s 2000AD work(to date)showing a monolithic Tharg gazing out across His Good Works!
Hopefully Kev will return to dazzle again sometime soon..
Kev Walker is currently drawing Thunderbolts for Marvel
(Thanks to Barney for invaluable aid!)
After the death of his son and the disappearance of his wife former soldier and rebuilt cyborg Nate Slaughterhouse means to get revenge on the man he holds responsible.
However Denzo Shultz,head of the block protection racket and target of Nate’s vengeance,has a little surprise in store at his cross-border fortress retreat in Canadia..
Penultimate part(Prog1463,2Nov’05)of John Wagner and Kev Walker’s supreme “Mandroid”.
Kev Walker returns to 2000AD after a 2 1/2yr absence with some of his best work ever on the momentous Judge Dredd series,“Mandroid”(Progs1453-64,24Aug-9Nov’05).
Written by creator and master Dredd scribe John Wagner it tells of ex-soldier now part-man,mostly machine Nate Slaughterhouse,who finds adjusting to his new body and the rigours of life in Mega-City One hard to bear..
Another Judge Dredd crossover,this time with Aliens,the xenomorphs from planet Proteus.
Brought to Mega-City One by the unscrupulous Mr. Bones for his revenge against the Judges,the Incubus as he calls the aliens,have already established a hive in the Undercity,and soon start to spread to the surface..
Written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Henry Flint,Judge Dredd vs Aliens:Incubus is a superior read from the often inferior world of the crossover/movie tie-in.
Fabulous Kev Walker cover too!(Prog1322,8Jan’03)
Kev Walker reprised his Tor Cyan character for two more outings(Progs1223-26,3-24Jan’01 &1250-53,11Jul-1Aug’01)that went a long way to filling the gaps in Cyan’s elusive past.
It is revealed that he is indeed from Genetic Infantryman stock but whose exactly?
Was he one of the original platoon that were supposedly all wiped out in the Quartz-Zone massacre,one of Friday’s second generation or was he in fact the Rogue Trooper himself,somehow saved from the shuttle disaster that apparently took his life?
To find out all these answers and more,you can read about them in Mercy Heights 1-15(reprinted in Judge Dredd Megazine313-16,16Aug-8Nov2011)and the Tor Cyan collected works(Megs316-17,8Nov-6Dec2011)
Well worth tracking down, back issues are available through the 2000AD shop.
I posted this cover previously with some other Kev Walker art from this story arc;“Sin City”(Progs1289-99,1May-12Jul’02),reprinted as “Satan’s Island” to avoid confusion with Frank Miller’s series of the same name,for the U.S graphic novel market.
Awesome cover(Prog1280,27Feb’02)commemorating 25 years or Silver Anniversary of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic,2000AD.
Showing it’s two greatest icons:Tharg the Mighty and Judge Dredd by artist fave Kev Walker in his ghafflebette series of Tharg covers.
