2000AD...And The Great Steve Dillon

It's always a treat to get a pile of old 2000ADs in the Little Shop. I have to force myself to actually sell them on, but I always have a nostalgic flip through them first. The various Progs in this batch (currently on eBay at very reasonable prices folks!) form a particularly rich seam: was 2000AD ever better than in the 200s? In the space of just 10 issues (the 220s) they launched both Nemesis and Rogue Trooper, and featured the classic Dark Judges Dredd storyline, with amazing Bolland art. They just don't make 'em like that any more.

Also in the batch are Steve Dillon's never-bettered covers for the Dredd werewolf story... one of the first Dredds I ever read, and still one of the very best.
