Prog 444 – Love Story

Story: Love Story
Appears: 2000AD Prog 444
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Ian Gibson
Dated: 16 November 1985

This is a darkly comic piece that explores an entirely new style for the strip – that of romance. You know that love won’t conquer all but it is delightfully charming while it lasts.

 Gibson’s soft art style (best known for Halo Jones) is perfect for the piece. The little touches such as turning the credits box into a heart and the “Love is…” motto at the beginning are well chosen.
