Download 2000 AD Prog #217
Tharg's Future Shocks Dept. I promised you folks some difficult-to-find, high-quality material and here is some. I have this little known yet classic tale in color as a reprint courtesy of Quality/Fleetway's Time Twisters #1, which I have stored away somewhere and will upload it once located, but either way this is still one of the better short stories crafted by Alan Moore and John Higgens. "The Last Rumble of the Platinum Horde" was originally presented in 2000 AD #217, 1981, and has been reprinted in Alan Moore's Shocking Futures.
Future Shocks is the name given to a long running series of short strips in the weekly comic 2000 AD. The name originates in a book titled Future Shock, written by Alvin Toffler, published in the UK only a short time before 2000 AD was launched.
Some characters proved popular enough to spin into their own ongoing story in 2000AD, D.R. and Quinch being one of the most notable examples.
