Action, Starlord, Tornado covers (2000AD)


All the covers of 2000AD's long lost siblings. Action is seen as 2000AD's precursor and ran for 36 issues from February to October 1976 (unpublished issues 37 - 41 also included). Pat Mills was planning 2000AD and putting together the dummy Prog 0 as Action ran. Starlord ran for 22 issues from May to July 1978 before merging with 2000AD at Prog 86. Tornado ran for 22 issues from March to August 1979 before merging with 2000AD at Prog 127. The corresponding 2000AD Progs are included here to show how these comics fit into the 2000AD timeline.

Dredd removed his mask early on in the run of 2000AD.... And, intriguingly this happened......

Issue (or rather "prog") 1 did not even have Dredd in it. The publishers thought that the new Dan Dare would take all the glory, so held Dredd back for issue 2...... Then even forgot to mention him in the preview at the back of prog 1.....

Terrance (Doctor Who novelisations) Dicks might have taught me to read. But 2000AD comic took my imagination to crazy places and could make me choke up at the fate of robots in insane civilisations of the future. :emoji_robot:
