Back to title selection : Comics O : Overkill Vol 1



Overkill was an initially fortnightly anthology title published by Marvel UK from 24th April 1992 to 24th August 1994 (52 issues in total), although it became a monthly for the last part of its run (beginning with #43). It was published concurrently with Marvel UK's 1990s line of American format comics (including titles including Knights of Pendragon, Warheads, Dark Angel, Digitek and Motormouth) and was essentially the outlet for these stories in Britain's high streets, while the individual comics were sold in comics speciality shops both in the UK and America. Early issues of Overkill did not contain the full contents of the direct market editions of the characters' solo titles; extra pages were created for those. However, from #12, overkill published the full stories, albeit re-edited into smaller chunks due to the fortnightly frequency and anthology format. From #12, the title included Death's Head II, and later issues included Black Axe, Super Soldiers, Dark Guard and Wild Thing. No attempt was made to include the entire direct market line, though; Knights of Pendragon was dropped early on, for instance, as it was one of the less popular strips, and other series' such as Gene Dogs did not appear at all.
