*Boys’ Adventure & War Comics: Following mega-sales, Britain’s premier sci-fi weekly, 2000 AD, is hugely restocked with close to 200 new issues from the years 1979 to 1983. A handful of issues from the early #100’s, then pretty solidly with minimal gappage from #150 upwards, a period where the series was generally acknowledged to be in its prime. A hot new writer called Alan Moore was beginning to make his impact, and Kev O’Neill, Dave Gibbons, Ian Kennedy, and Ian Gibson were all regular contributing talents. Highlights from this period include the debut of Nemesis, first as a one-off in #167, then as an ongoing series in #178, the first appearances of long-running stories Mean Arena and Ace Trucking Co. in #178 and #232 respectively, and an interesting curiosity, the virtual pro debut of a promising young artist named Alan Davis on “Harry Twenty on the High Rock”, commencing in #287. Plus, a plethora of issues with art by the legendary Brian Bolland, all tagged in our listings where in stock, culminating in the Judge Dredd serial, “Judge Death Lives!” from #224 on.
