40th Anniversary Special

"To celebrate an incredible four decades of continuous weekly publication, 2000 AD marks its 40th birthday with a 48-page bumper special, packed with all-new stories from the cream of comics talent.
 
"There’s a brand-new case for Judge Dredd courtesy of John Wagner and Steve Dillon; Hammerstein and Ro-Jaws take their revenge on Howard Quartz in ‘Ro-Busters’ by Pat Mills and Clint Langley; we return to the mad, mad world of Zombo by Al Ewing and Henry Flint; Nikolai Dante gets the party started in ‘Devil May Care’ by Robbie Morrison and Simon Fraser; a young Slaine shows that he’s got what it takes to join the Red Branch, courtesy of Pat Mills and Simon Davis; plus much more!"


And look!  Carlos Ezquerra has even drawn some dots around the guns for us!

I, Cosh

Wow!

FP's listing is out of date - Steve sadly passed away before he could start work on the strip. I believe it's now being drawn by Carl Critchlow.

Very sad that there won't be a postumous strip.

How many variant covers are planned for this 40th Anniversary Special or will it just be the one?

I somehow entirely missed Complete Future Shocks. Oh my. I so hope that gets enough purchases to warrant an ongoing collection.

My nomination for a future reprint is Third World War from Crisis. (First book only.)

Sounds amazing.

A damn shame Steve Dillon never had the chance to contribute as planned.
Can I take a stab in the dark that the story will feature the return / final appearance of Judge Prager?
The Critchlow Droid was the only other artist to draw that character, and it just feels like something TMO would do.

In another thread I was discussing my desire to read Alan Moors collection of future shocks, however, the Complete Future Shocks might me a more worthwhile investment.

The Alan Moore book is superb, and it's notable that a lot of it includes Time Twisters, too. (I suppose they might be in the FS volume, but who knows?)

So we can assume that the Mind Wars, Timequake & Starlord Stront in colour collections are scheduled for the 40th anniversary of Tooth’s sister comic in 2018 then?  ;)

Considering I have little experience with FS and comments like yours, I think I'll get the Alan Moore book to begin with - thanks. I have not heard of Time Twisters, although I assume they are similar to FS if they are included.

Regarding that Starlord cover above, what kind of badge did it come with? If I was a lad in the late 70's that would have been very enticing!

My copy doesn't have a badge, but I believe they had one of six types of sticker, each depicting a different regiment of starlord troopers.



With artwork by Kevin O'Neill, by the looks of it.

So obviously by Kevin O'Neill.

I think that somehow I ended up with two of these. Robot regiment and Tank Commander. I drove over one with an armchair so it's a bit battered.
