Revolver

September 29, 2008

The then publishers of the UK Science Fiction weekly 2000AD attempted to find a more adult audience for this monthly magazine. Revolver only lasted 7 issues between July 1990 and January 1991. Perhaps they found what so many others have discovered before or since….there just doesn’t seem to be enough readers out there to sustain a non-focused adult anthology title. It featured an oddly neutered version of the long-running character Dan Dare.

Rogan Gosh did later appear in a DC/Vertigo comic in the USA.

The oddest/best strip was the Paul Neary/Steve Parkhouse “Happenstance and Kismet”.

“Dire Streets” was written and drawn by Julie Hollings.
