Despite its appearance on the cover of Prog 1, no price was given for distribution on Mercury.

Tharg was still waiting for his letter-opening robot to be assembled[2].

This prog saw the first appearance of Judge Dredd in the first of eight single-episode stories. The other five stories all continued on from the previous issue. M.A.C.H.1 finished its initial introductory two-part story and would also begin a run of standalone stories from the following prog.

Surprisingly, there was no mention of Dredd on the cover. Instead, it was half given over to the Dan Dare strip, and half to publicise the M.A.C.H.1-related free gift. It was drawn by Massimo Bellardinelli, the Dan Dare artist at the time.

Behind the ScenesEdit

The Biotronic stickers were intended as a tie-in to M.A.C.H.1.
