Beginning in 1981, and continuing throughout the rest of the decade, Titan Books published dozens of softcover collections featuring reprinted stories from 2000AD, the UK anthology science fiction comic. The series, the first to feature reprints from the weekly title, proved a hit with readers and so more characters began to star in their own reprint collections. It was inevitable then that strips starring fan-favourite Johnny Alpha, the Strontium Dog, would be given the reprint treatment.

A look at some of my favourite covers from 2000AD comic
Toward the end of 1986 artist Kevin O’Neill contributed a handful of covers to weekly British science-fiction comic 2000AD. All those covers demonstrated his unique artistic style and the cover to Prog #497 is no exception.
A while back I posted an article extolling Titan Books’ 2000AD reprint series from the 1980’s. Beginning with The Chronicles of Judge Dredd in June 1981 these collections reprinted between 64 and 96 pages of material from weekly British science-fiction comic 2000AD. The books were a huge success and throughout the rest of the Eighties Titan released a further 39 volumes featuring the future lawman. To capitalise of the success of the Dredd books Titan also released dozens of volumes featuring reprints from other 2000AD strips, as well as those from daily newspapers, that showcased the work of some of the UK comic book industry’s biggest talents.
