Indexer Notes

The title is taken from the ‘Next Week’ panel of the previous issue. R. E. Wright is an alias. The strip was conceived and thrashed out by Pat Mills for the launch of 2000AD a year previously, but discarded. When IPC switched the frequency of Starlord from monthly to weekly just prior to launch new strips were needed and Planet of the Damned was pulled from the files. Editor Kelvin Gosnell re-jigged the strip, and assorted others scripted issues.
