Progs 494 to 495 – Phantom of the Shoppera

Story: Phantom of the Shoppera
Appears: 2000AD Progs 494-495
Issues: 2
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: John Higgins
Dated: 1 November 1986 to 8 November 1986

A real classic, this two issue story has some mystery, some action, and some absurdity – all perfect for Mega-city one. We have seen crazy robot stories many times but this is far more engaging and emotional. The fact we see a male victim being kidnapped instead of the usual female one is a spark of brilliance and creativity rarely seen 1980’s comics.
