2000AD Annual 1979 – Dr Panic

CF03Story: Dr Panic
Appears: 2000AD Annual 1979
Writers: (uncredited writer)
Art: Brett Ewins and Brendan McCarthy
Dated: 1979

This is uncredited and probably justly so as although there are plenty of Dredd elements, such as Walter and Max Normal, the whole thing lacks any kind of sparkle. Dredd utters nonsense about how synthetic caffeine is illegal and Max Normal speaks far too normally.

The premise of a suicide arcade where people risk their lives against deadly slot machines was done better as “You Bet Your Life” in Prog 25. This has a longer page count than usual but doesn’t do anything notable with it.
