Edmund Bagwell - Seven Deadly Thrills!


Prog 1874 is a 'Jumping On' issue with FIVE glorious new stories, all wrapped in the gorgeous Edmund Bagwell cover above. The great news is, the prig SOLD OUT at distributer level a week early, meaning that Tharg has had to reprint the Prog!

The new stories include Dredd by the dream team of John Wagner and Colin MacNeil. Brand new Slaine by Pat Mills, featuring the long awaited debut of Simon Davis' fully painted artwork. The return of Sinister Dexter by Dan Abnett and Smudge. New thrill Outlier by Tom Eglington and Karl Richardson and finally Rogue Trooper spin off Jaegir by Gordon Rennie and the brilliant Simon Coleby. 

Edmund's brief for the cover was deceptively simple, "Tharg wanted a group shot with himself behind them." Below we see Edmund's sketch...

Tharg's party piece of controlling six string puppets at once always went down well at parties...

Of course, Edmund knocked it out of the park.

Pure Thrillpower!

The mighty one was so impressed with the image he used it for an exclusive limited edition T-Shirt in the recent London Super Comic Con, modelled below by this handsome chap...

Like a modern day Fonzie...

And here's how the prog looks on your shelf...

"You put your left leg in..."

Thanks to Edmund for the Zarjaz images, make sure you pick up a copy of the Prog this week before it sells out again!
