This prog saw all new stories for the first time since the very first issue. The Harlem Heroes returned for a second stint, replacing Shako!. This story would run for a whopping forty episodes, and would become the second-longest single story in the comic's history, beaten only by the 50-episode Meltdown Man in Progs 178-227. Dan Dare began a new 16-part story. M.A.C.H.1 started a four-parter, Judge Dredd a two-parter, while Invasion! and Tharg's Future Shocks both had one-off stories. Also in this prog were a fifth and final supercover saga by Lopez, and a schematic diagram of Dan Dare's Space Fort.
