Your Favorite Prog Covers!
« on: 20 March, 2017, 05:11:48 am »
I would like to hear what you recommend as some of the best covers (or Starscans) of all time.

I am moving to a new house in a couple months and my new place will have a nice sized room fit for creating a "man cave". I will have a wall dedicated to 2000AD and would like to frame half a dozen or so progs along one wall.

I am not wanting to buy expensive issues if I can help it, but ones with great cover art that I can hang (I'll purchase a dozen or so and cycle them on the wall). My preference is any Strontium Dog, Rogue Trooper, Dredd, and ABC Warriors, but am open to any suggestions. Thanks for any input!

Here are a few that I like, but I have not looked through all 2000...

Not my favourite strip, but a great piece of design and execution by Langley:



(I'll re-post the O'Neill one I've just deleted when I can find a non-blurry version!)

I don't have a scan of it handy but Prog 61 is the greatest 2000AD cover of all time. Probably.
