In anticipation of the return of Ulysses Sweet in next week’s oversized Prog 2014, the droids over at 2000 AD saw fit to pass along a little bit of history to get us all good and in the mood for the giant-sized mag. You see, back in 1987, this young up-and-comer by the name of Grant Morrison, along with artist J. Kube, helped bring Ulysses Sweet into the world. By my count, Sweet made all of three appearances in the pages of 2000 AD. And now, 26 years after his creation, the Maniac-For-Hire is returning! So please enjoy the first of three complete strips we’ll be presenting you!
