Prog 296 to 297 – The Night of the Rad-Beast

CF06Story: The Night of the Rad-Beast
Appears: 2000AD Prog 296-297
Issues: 2
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Carlos Ezquerra
Dated: 25 December 1982 to 1 January 1983

This is a cute little story that has little bit of Frankenstein and maybe King Kong with a sci-fi twist. Like all good monster stories you feel bad at the end.

What is unusual is after the dramatic opening we flash backwards to see origin of the story as opposed to learning how it all happened by watching Dredd solve the case.

Ezquerra continues the great work he did on Apocalypse War reprising the radiation blasted city. His monster pays homage to the proper Universal era creatures of early cinema too.
