2000 AD Prog Slog

Prog 67


Hear the term Death Planet and you might imagine a poisonous atmosphere; molten landscapes; an environment hot enough to melt a car, or cold enough to freeze the blood in your veins in just seconds; dangerous levels of radiation; wading knee deep through rubble and bones; the sky swirling with the spirits of the dead. Instead, what you get is a place no worse than a foreign country during the holiday peak season; poor accommodation, water that is difficult but not impossible to digest and slightly peculiar but not entirely bizarre looking animals. In this prog's episode of Death Planet, a young girl does die in a fire but it was started by a rival group of castaways; you can hardly blame the planet for that.

  • Saw in my local comic shop yesterday that 2000 AD have just collected the original Invasion in a trade paperback.

    Tempting for those of us who don't have all the original progs.

  • Dom, I think if it's cheap and cheerful and you're interested in 2000 AD then it's worth a go. I'll be interested in a collection of the Savage strips that have appeared recently in 2000 AD. Although, I might feel differently further into The Slog.

  • I believe there's a Savage collection due out this summer once the current story's finished.

  • Peter, I saw that collection solicited in the latest Diamond catalogue. Straight onto my Amazon wish list... for purchase long after the slog ends.
