I'm sure you've all seen this prog, with it's Devlin Waugh cover by Sean Phillips and the free cd (if not get your arse on ebay and buy it). Well did you know that there is another cover to this prog, yes folks another cover!
Even the might of Barney only shows the Sean Phillips cover but due to a stroke of pure luck and good eyesight I found the unknown, alternate cover.
I had already bought the prog from my local comic shop The Grinning Demon and after my normal long chat I wandered about the town. Eventually I ended up in Smiths at the comics area, ready to spread the 2000AD's across the shelves (and the Megs) and what did I see. Well at first I thought it was last weeks prog as I didn't recognise the cover, then I wondered if next weeks had come in by mistake, that is until I opened it. The contents are the exactly the same and there is no mention in the Nerve Centre about the two covers, how strange! Obviously I bought a copy and went straight back to the comic shop to speak about my find. The only reason we could come up with about the two covers being in the same town was the suppliers are different but still we had no idea about why two covers.
At one of the Dreddcons I mentioned this to Tharg's minions and if I remember correctly they said that they had a deal for those cd's but only managed to get 30,000 of them and so had to quickly come up with a different cover. The cover is of Mazeworld by Arhur Ranson and on here it looks almost 3D. Well I suppose I better put the prog up or no-one will believe me, so here it is.
