As a kid, I used to read a comic book called 2000 AD, and I’m reading a bunch of them all over again. I no longer have my own back issues, but I found some scans that I’ve downloaded and I’m reading on my phone using Bubble. The cover of issue 89 is a wonderful work by possibly my favorite of the entire school of late 70s, early 80s 2000 AD artists, Mike McMahon.
I used to read 2000 AD as a kid, and I’m doing it all over again. Specifically I’m reading old issues of the comic from the late 70s and early 80s. I no longer have my own back issues, but I found some scans that I have downloaded and I’m reading on my phone using Bubble. This issue has a very unique, cinematic-style cover that I think is very effective. There are made up critics’ quotes from the Martian Mirror, the Daily Moon, and the Droid Review.
I used to read 2000 AD for years, off and on, and I’m doing it all over again. 2000 AD is still going, but I’m reading those old issues of the comic from the late 70s and early 80s that I read as a kid. Unfortunately, I no longer have my old issues of the comic, but I found some scans of early 2000 ADs, which is even better because I can read them on my phone using Bubble, the comic book reader for Android 4.
I started reading Starlord again with issue one back in September of last year. I then went on to read every issue of Starlord for a second time (I read them for the first time when they were first published, back in late 1978), and reached the last issue a couple of days ago. It might seem like that means my nostalgia trip is over, but that is very far from the truth.
I am currently indulging in a bout of nostalgia with an old comic book from my childhood, a comic called Starlord. This post is about issue number 22, which came out on 7 October 1978. You can read this vintage comic book too, because scans of the entire run of the comic are available at Starlordcomic.com. This issue is the last Starlord ever published, and it is a very sad occasion for me.
