Last week it was Tank Girl and Deadline I thought for my Comic nerding post this week I'd focus of 2000ad heroines seeing as it's the 37th year it's been in print ,but to start off wanted to focus on Nina Petrova from 2000ad's sister comic Battle Picture weekly-
Possibly the Most famous of British comic heroines from 2000ad has to be Judge Anderson now-as she's been portrayed in the Dredd 3D movie by Olivia Thirby(who I thought got the character right-it would be nice if she returns to role) I think the film is actually garnering a cult reputation I do see signs of it amongst non British comic and film fans so I do have some hope for a Judge Death movie.
Thought I'd feature a few Anderson costume posts- some based on the original comic and some from the movie version.
As 2000ad proceeded into the end of the 1980's another title appeared on the newstands with a more political standpoint The comic was called Crisis and a story set in the year 1999- Third World War- not as in thermal nuclear warfare but it dealt with the actual Third World -and the effects of multi -nationalism I think this an issue where the heroine Eve Collins has returned from her duties as a "Peace Soldier" hence the nicely painted jacket rather than her soldier fatigues- I've bought a bundle of these comics recently so I need to re-read them again some point.. check out that ear ring- cosplay that lol
Purity Brown-from Nemesis the Warlock-the Ultimate Goth Chick....tried to clean photo of image in photoshop
I'll finish off with vampire bounty hunter Durham Red- who's switched her look back and forth over the years-you'd probably expect me to prefer her more gothic catsuit look but I don't - Carlos design was just fine and she looks like a Strontium Dog -which her character was in the first place.
The gist I get from Strontiom Dog meant to be a space western but what they did with her character in the 90's was propel her far from her timezone and give her a more fetishized look .. much more goffy -and I guess cosplay friendly.
I've come up with four different themes to vote for regular posts here check out the right hand side to cast votes .. I'll leave this one up for a week not sure most people have cottoned on that this blog has undergone a resurgence yet.

More aviation themed pics.. I wanted to tip my flying cap to the aviatrix's of old .. mind I may need to stock up on images as it took me a while to find enough pics for this post( bikes and cars no problemo as you'd expect) I may think of another theme for a regular post (Gothic maybe?-Cosplay perhaps?.. I'll think of two more later) and then put it to a poll.
