2000AD Prog 72

8th of July 1978

There are a number of issues of 2000ad which will never see a reprint because they infringed copyright, and Prog72 is one of those.  It featured the ‘Burger Wars’ story which sees Ronald McDonald and The Burger King take centre stage.   It has a gorgeous colour centre spread by Mike McMahon which still looks great now even after thirty years.

You can still get your hands on the originals fairly easily if you’re willing to spend a few quid, it certainly won’t break the bank.  Old Ronnie hasn’t changed much over the years as you can see though the King does look somewhat better now than then I think.  Inferno, Dan Dare, Ant Wars and Mach Zero also feature in the prog.

  1. did copyright/trademark rules change so that it was ok back then but not ok now? Or did they have an agreement that ran out? Or did they have an agreement until they saw the published comic and realized they were the bad guys and changed their mind? Or was it considered satire and someone changed their mind and decided an action comic book can’t be satire? Yo probably don’t know. I’m just curious because it was ok once to publish it and not to reprint it
