Product Description

About the Author

John Wagner is, to many fans, the very heart of 2000 AD. Involved from the earliest days of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he co-created Judge Dredd, as well as a whole cast of other memorable characters. Wagner has worked extensively beyond the Thargian universe, originating and editing a number of British periodicals as well as writing many American standards. His Paradox Press graphic novel A History of Violence is now a major film from director David Cronenberg. ALAN GRANT The only writer to even come close to John Wagner's astonishing 2000 AD record is, perhaps unsurprisingly, his long-term writing partner Alan Grant. With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title, and has also written The Chronicles of Genghis Grimtoad, JLA: Riddle of the Beast, L.E.G.I.O.N., Lobo, Tank Girl and The Terminator.

After finally doing the right thing and releasing Judge Dredd's adventures in chronological order, 2000AD are now using the format for some of it's other quality strips. If any of the other classic 2K characters deserves the treatment it would be Strontium Dog so this collection(including the original Starlord episodes)is very welcome. The strips have also aged considerably better than the very early Dredd strips, the storylines having a grittier feel and the mutant persecution angle gives the ongoing scrapes of Johnny Alpha a humanity that Dredd lacks. It's a massive volume, and another area it benefits over the Dredd Case Files is in the continuity of the artwork. For the most part this is Carlos Ezquerra's show, and all the better for it, his iconic depiction of Alpha and chums being among his best work. When the occasional fill-in artist takes centre stage the blow is softened by the quality of the artists chosen(Ian Gibson in particular does a great job). The stories are great, with the exception of the bonus strips taken from old annuals, but it seems wrong to criticize the bonus material and if anything comletists will be glad they were included. Roll on book 2.

Format: Paperback
Strontium Dog features in the British science fiction weekly 2000 AD, starring Johnny Alpha, a mutant bounty hunter with a range of ingenious gadgets and weapons. He first appeared in the comic Starlord, a short-lived weekly Sci - fi comic, in 1978. When comic was cancelled the story transferred to 2000 AD. The rest I guess is history, the character and his narrative has strong following amongst 2000 AD fans. In this nicely printed volume you get both the first stories from Starlord and the early tales from its current home. I found the stories highly imaginative and original and I highly recommend this edition.

Format: Paperback
I saw this book in a shop in town and had to buy it right there and then. I was so deeply submerged in it that I missed my stop on the bus and had to walk two miles back down the road to get home. It was worth it.
The artwork is great, the stories are better. If I happen to be involved in the great war to end all wars, if by some miracle I survive, and by chance become mutated, possibly to the degree where normal people hate me and by coincidence I get offered a job as a bounty hunter, I promise I will never, ever smile.
Johnny Alpha is a mean, cold, heartless killer with heart. He NEVER smiles. His partner, Wulf Sternhammer is a norse maniac with a sledgehammer. And then theres the Gronk, an annoying, whiny, pathetic, fluffy gimp of a creature who just gets in the way. The greatest graphic anti-hero ever thought up.
And y'know what? compared to some 2000ad characters, even the Gronk could fill you with 'dredd'

My love for STRONTIUM DOG runs very deep. It's one of the comics that literally changed the course of my life. It put me on the path to writing, and opened up in my mind the possibility that I could thrill people the way these stories thrilled me. I'm now a 42-year old dad, and I love these stories as much as ever, and I'm looking forward to passing them on to my kids. So thank you, Johnny Alpha and Wulf Sternhammer. And especially, thank you John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Carlos Ezquerra. You are the very best.

Format: Paperback
Then don't miss Strontium Dog.
From the very first stories Strontium Dog shines, unlike the Case Files of Judge Dredd, which took a few stories to get into a groove.
Here we have the early stories from the pages of Starlord. All of them in fact, including the slightly ropey ones from the Starlord annuals.
The same trio of co-creators which gave us Judge Dredd hit the ground running here (probably helped by their experiences with Judge Dredd).
As much as I love Dredd (and I do) I would love to see a film made out of the exploits of Johnny Alpha.
You see whilst Dredd (especially in the earlier stories) is a bit one dimension (but still excellent) Alpha is a more fully rounded character.
This book includes the wonderful "Journey Into Hell" story line and it's absolutely terrific.
This is a recommended buy, especially if you love Judge Dredd.

Good stories but the pages have been photocopied and therefore the writing is dull and hard to read. A shame as the content deserves better treatment.
