Being a long term Squaxx dek Thargo, I was really pleased when 2000AD announced that Flesh was coming back and that it will be a direct sequel to the original strip (one of the reasons why I liked 2000AD in the first place).

FYI, this is what I got from the 2000ADOnline website:

Flesh Returns!

Head back to the Cretaceous as the dinosaur-farming cowboys of Trans-Time return for Flesh: Texas, a new series by Pat Mills and James Mckay, starting in 2000 AD Prog 1724, on sale 9 March 2011. Set directly after the events of the very first series, with the Trans-Time base destroyed by Old One-Eye's rampage, Boots McGurk and the rest of the survivors must herd their stock across dangerous terrain to Texas – but T. Rex Gorehead has other ideas...

I can't wait! :cheers:

About time as well....this was miles more entertaining than Spielberg's Jurassic Lark. I.ll never forget the ultra-bizarre image of three time-travellers who got their genes crossed with a T REX, then re-materialized as a mutated abomination in the 'arrival bay' in the 23rd Century......



---this was [rightly dubbed as THRILL OVERLOAD at the time......]



----------Unforgettable!

Couldn't agree with you more, ISPYSHHHGUY.

And I have now read the first instalment and it looks pretty good.

I must admit I need to get used to the artwork but the new T-Rek looks pretty good.

I love the fact that they are using the original 'Flesh' logo. :D

And the wrap-around cover doesn't hurt either. :D :D

For the benefit of the uninitiated, here's the utterly scrotnig FLESH cover from the early [1977] period of 2000 AD: featuring the nightmarish fusion between dinosaur and men:

All this time [over 30 years!] and I never realized until today that it was a BOLLAND-nibbed cover.....must've been amongst his earliest works for the comic............

I'd only just stopped getting Tooth, I may have to buy the first part of this and see how it pans out.
My brother used to get it in 1997, when the free facsimilie of issue 1 was bundled with an issue. Flesh was probably our favourite story in it... it had the most blood!

Thought it was a good start, with a proper feel for the original.
The dinosaurs were great - just a shame the art wasn't inked with a finer line.

Still, story is good and the artwork fits in.

And I think Vegas Carter is a mighty fine woman. Far prettier than Earl Reagan. :D

Flesh was great in those early issues. Does anyone remember the Flesh card game
that came with 2000AD - or did I dream that?

Now that it has finished its run for the time being, what did people think of the new 'Flesh'?

Ian, you didn't dream it. I remember playing it with my cousin many moons ago. I now wince at the thought of how many comics we had to cut up to play the game. :o
