So I picked up iv.

It's in colour, which IMHO spoils 2000ad's style, but the story is actually pretty good. The thing I like about Zemith as you get the feeling that the authors knew where they were going from the start.

Never trust a Hippy.

No, that was 3 IIRC.

IV was in colour and the the dino scenes as I remember them were B&W.

If AM wrote it it would have included a scene where Ruby Fox Sucks of Cthulhu while getting gang-raped by Archie the Robot.

A mate of mine leant me the Neonomicon recently - said he thought i would like it. WTF???

of course that last one might be series 3. :)


Yes, that's 3 - I have never even read iv.

The final series, Phase IV, brought the story full circle as the remaining members of Cloud 9 eventually transform into the very Lovecraftian horrors that Zenith battled in the first series. After destroying America in retaliation for a psychic attempt on their own lives they use the Sun as an incubator for their final metamorphosis into The Many Angled Ones, and (after casually destroying The Earth in passing) they ascend to the heavens attempting to gain control of the multiverse. St John has however (during part two - "The Eleventh Hour" episode,) trapped the Lloigor in the pocket universe created by Chimera, and the universe is assumed saved - although it is implied that St John has his own agenda for taking control - by this time he is already Prime Minister of Great Britain.


Sounds..... different.

In 2000AD, a British SF Comic, there was a Series called 'Zenith'.

There were 4 series of it, but I only read the first three.

Was the 4th one worthy of my perusal?

Ahhhhh, thanks for explaining :lol: :wink:
