    Description

    Jim Murray 2000 AD Extreme Edition #9 M.A.C.H. 1 Painted Cover Original Art (Fleetway, 2005). John Probe was a British Secret Service agent who volunteered for a special procedure whereby his physical strength, speed and agility would be enhanced using 'compu-puncture' (M.A.C.H. - "Man Activated by Compu-puncture Hyperpower"), a computerized form of acupuncture. This powerhouse of a cover, painted by Jim Murray, is rendered in acrylic paint on illustration board, The overall size measures 10" x 15". In Excellent condition, and signed at the lower right.

    More Information:

    Probe's metabolism was controlled by a computer implanted in his skull, which also fed him tactical information such as the amount of strength or the exact throwing angle required for a given task. At first, M.A.C.H. 1 echoed the Six Million Dollar Man, but with more graphic violence. As the strip continued the tone became increasingly dark.
