    Description

    Dave Gibbons 2000 AD #200-205 Giant 6-Page Poster Illustration Judge Dredd and Tharg Original Art (IPC, 1981). Six pull-out posters by Dave Gibbons (of later Watchmen fame) were included one-per-issue in this quintessential British weekly comic publication! Once assembled, the poster shows the Sci-Fi series' host, Tharg, letting readers know what was in store for them... because "the year 2000 draws closer with every Prog!" (A prog was an issue in 2000 AD parlance.) His warnings include Future War, Space Travel, Robots, Mutants, and changes in Cities and Cultures. Oh Tharg, if you only knew. The image features Judge Dredd, Judge Death, Walter the Wobot, Robo-Hunter, the A.B.C. Warriors, Strontium Dog, Tweak, many many more! This huge, behemoth of a piece was rendered in ink over graphite on oversized illustration board with an image area of 32.75" x 26.5". All text and logos, as well as the border text, are stat paste-ups. Where the art overlaps the border text, it has been trimmed around the art edges, pried up, and the text slid under (a low-tech solution used since the Golden Age of comics). Signed by Gibbons in the lower right. The toned board is in Very Good condition.
