Welcome to Prog 17 which features ‘Invasion!‘, ‘Flesh‘, ‘Dan Dare‘, ‘Harlem Heroes‘, ‘M.A.C.H.1‘ and ‘Judge Dredd‘, published on 18 June 1977.
I’ve been struggling with figuring out how to format these posts in the sense of listing the stories in the order they’re printed or just keeping my favourite until last. Not sure what makes for better reading or if anyone who reads this just wants to see what my pick is and then buggers off? Let me know in the comments what you prefer.
For now, I think I’ll stick to the order in which they appear for the most part an put my favourite at the end.
‘Invasion!‘ takes us to Petticoat Lane for some slave auctions.
‘Flesh‘ has Earl Reagan ensnared in a web, but will he break free?
The ‘Harlem Heroes‘ face Gorgon’s Gargoyles in a match-up that reminds me of Blood Bowl.
‘Dan Dare‘ has our man DD overpowering Mekon.
‘M.A.C.H.1‘ is back in the snow as he tries to recover some nuclear missiles and is unsettled once more as he is the last survivor of the skirmish.
And my “Pick of the Prog“: ‘Judge Dredd‘ in a full colour page this time as below, in a scene reminiscent of Star Wars: A New Hope, Walter is awarded freedom for his valiant effort in assisting Judge Dredd but he soon gets bored of the freedom and the last panel genuinely cracked me up as Dredd‘s exasperation shows.
Prog 17 bagged and boarded! Join me on the next one to see who/what grabs the pick of Prog 18!
