2000AD Covers Uncovered - Twisted Sister!

A covers uncovered Clint Langley Special!

2 months ago

Not content with being a prolific interior strip artdroid, the brilliant Clint Langley is a Gruddamned cover machine! His glorious cover for Prog 2013 is his 75th prog cover, that's quite a habit he's got there!

This 2000AD Covers special will look at not only Clint's recent covers, but also some of the wonderful social media ads he produced to, quote, "promote 2000AD, because I love it to bits!"

Below is, quite aptly, a cowboy shot of the rather wicked Claw Carver, claw and all!

 It's balloons he misses the most...

Next up, a taste of what was to come...

The head of the heard, company man Earl Reagan...

His name is Earl.

Ah, who remembers those limited edition Alamosaur Burgers?

Warning, eating too many of these would give you a megasorearse.

Next, a lovely study of the Fleshdozer...

The fleshdozer never sleeps!

Claw's errant daughter, Vegas...

Viva, lost Vegas.

And finally another image of good old Carver - He IS the claw!

The Blooded Claw!

This brings us neatly to Clint's Flesh Cover Gallery for the Gorehead saga. Clint often delights fans by adopting a coherent style across a series of covers. He didn't dissappoint here, going for a very effective black and white vibe for this arc of Flesh. The first cover was for Prog 2001, foreshadowing the fate of many...

"Sheesh! Anyone got a breath mint?"

Followed by the buttock clenchingly tense moment when father finally catches up with his daughter...

" 'CLAW! I mean, 'DRAW!' "

 And finally we see Earl Reagan taking on Gorehead and a whole heard of T-Rexes, on a horse, with a pointy stick. He's in trouble...

So brave! So handsome! So dead!

After finishing the current arc of Flesh, Tharg allowed Clint his allocated 3 second oil break before ordering him to work on a scrotnig cover for new story Hope. This griity, noire-esque story is set in an alternate 1940's Hollywood, where occult magic is the norm. Mallory Hope is a private investigator with a talent for black magic and nose for trouble.

In the City of Angels, Mallory or constantly haunted by his demons, particularly a rather spooky nun in a gas mask...

Sister Wilf was off to see Father Flatulence again...

Huuuuge thanks to Clint for sending the images. Surely he must be one of Tharg's most versatile droids! Those earthlets who have Facebook accounts should check out "The Art of Clint Langley" group for more amazing images!
