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. This was also the first Prog to use the 'Credit Card' graphic at the start of each story to give the appropriate credit to the contributing writers, artists & letterers. This was brought in for all the strips except Dan Dare, which didn't start displaying this until Prog 38.
