2000 AD Prog 1083 – Cover Date 24th February 1998
Watch The Skies! Is This The End For The Men In Black?
Cover art by Dermot Power
In regards to the question posed by the cover – no, this is not the end for the Men in Black. However, we are nearing the end. Vector 13 closes it’s current run this prog but it will be back for at least one more batch of episodes later this year.
Judge Dredd: Missing also concludes this week with a satisfying wrap up involving a weaponised chandelier. Sinister Dexter was a bit of a weird one this week but a superb one-off Nikolai Dante more than compensates.
Next week is going to be interesting as 2000 AD celebrates it’s 21st birthday with a 48 page special – which was on sale for two weeks, a precurser to the 21st century’s christmas specials perhaps.
