Storm Force

Postby Red Laser » 12 May 2016 13:47

I was wondering about Storm Force was it finished in Battle and then repeated in Eagle as was Johnny Red and Charley's War? Or did Eagle just carry on where Battle left off?

Both, actually! I've just been going through them. For the three weeks prior to the merger, Eagle reprinted the first Storm Force strip, then continued printing new material for another two and bit years (only 3 pages an issue though, all by Vanyo). Then about a year later they started printing reprints of the Battle Vanyo run. I'm considering rescanning the centre page spreads as they are B&W in the reprints. Once all the scans are done I'm hoping to put together some collected editons and maybe another colouring project...

Here's my scan list :)

BATTLE WEEKLY
24th January 1987 - 23rd January 1988

BATTLE SPECIAL
1987 - 1988

BATTLE ANNUAL
1988 - 1989

EAGLE WEEKLY
09th January 1988 - 23rd January 1988 [B&W Reprints]

EAGLE WEEKLY
30th January 1988 - 21st April 1990

EAGLE MONTHLY
May 1991 - December 1993 [B&W Reprints]

EAGLE SPECIAL
1989 - 1990

EAGLE ANNUAL
1990 - 1992

Thanks Baron this will help me see what I have between the two titles I did get some Eagle & Wildcat issues a few years ago but think I only got up to 1992

Did Storm Force ever conclude?

I've not read the Eagle-era strips myself, so I don't know!

Not as such, no. Actually, they started experimenting with the line-up a bit more towards the end. Three of the main six characters were replaced with newbies - Unknown, Para and Kung Fu, two of which only appeared in one story. The penultimate story was a John Storm solo mission, and the final original story to be printed didn't include John Storm at all and instead featured Stiletto and Para on a hijacked passenger plane - bit like the movie Air Force One, but obviously better ;)

Jump on board now! Vanyo's art is as wonderful as ever, John Cooper's grit is every bit as awesome.

Struggling for time, old Son. So when it is done I'm going to sit down one day and read the lot.
