Pat Mills comic
Now you can re-discover the roots of this legendary character in this vast and Thrill-packed series of graphic novels collecting together all of Dredd's adventures in chronological order, complete and uncut!
London, 1668. It is two years since the city was devastated by the Great Fire, the inferno caused by a comet passing over the capital. But from the ashes rose the undead, hungry for the flesh of the living. Protecting the populous are zombie hunters like Titus Defoe, ex-Leveller and now agent of the crown. As Titus battles the zombie horde he comes to realise that some sort of intelligence is guiding them. Along with his Brethren of The Night, he must look deep into the rotten heart of the undead capital, to discover the cause of this evil canker!
When the government attempts to cure autism, a group of super heroes is spawned instead. Unfortunately for their enemies, provoking this band of heroes doesn't result in the emotional responses you'd expect!
This classic sword-and-sorcery series is written by 2000 AD founding editor Pat Mills and Angie Kincaid and features art by Kincaid, Massimo Belardinelli (Ace Trucking Co.) and Mike McMahon (The Last American).
Rick Fortune (the 'Diceman') was a new character especially created for the comic and his adventures ran from the second issue until the fifth and final issue.
The first three issues of Starlord came with free gifts - issue one came with a Starlord Trooper badge (there were six badges to collect - one per issue), issue two came with a folded-card 'space calculator' (which displayed facts on the planets in our solar system) and issue three came with a Starblast game (a 20cm x 16cm card with a wipe clean surface - played a bit like Battleships)...
Despite initial strong sales, the comic failed to run strips consistently and creators were not paid on time leading to its cancellation and publisher Apocalypse being declared Bankrupt. Some of the characters found life at new publishers, such as Dark Horse and Atomeka and some even in 2000AD itself. Apocalypse did reprint most stories in the Apocalypse (1991) series.
It is the final years of the 21st Century, and Earth has been ravaged by its first Age War. The discovery of the "Chronos-Hormone" has at last unlocked the secret of eternal life but only for the very rich. The ancient Wrinklies rule with iron authority, thanks to their dread creations, the Steroids. And the youthful rebels stand no chance against their might, until a mysterious woman appears. Dakini the Sex Warrior, part angel, part devil, has mastered the arts of Tantrology, and by harnessing the internal energy of the young rebels, she alone holds the key to the defeat of the Wrinklies.
Written by British comics legend Pat Mills and featuring the breathtaking artwork of Joe Colquhoun, this first volume of Charley’s War includes Charley’s harrowing participation in one of the bloodiest encounters in human history - The Battle of the Somme.
