    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 Collin MacNeil, 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! We hope you caught yesterday’s post, this is the second of three strips we’ll be presenting you.

    In this strip, keeping with the activist theme from yesterday, Ulysses is hired by the Vegetable Liberation Front to rescue King Edward, Monarch of the potato people of Plinn!

    ULYSSES SWEET
    FRUITCAKE AND VEG part 1
    Originally published in 2000 AD Prog 508, cover date February 7, 1987

    Whaaat?! Ninja skills? A cliff hanger? Come back tomorrow for the next chapter! Oh, and if you missed yesterday’s post, that’s right here.

    Ulysses Sweet returns in the pages of 2000 AD Prog 2014, on sale December 11.
