Overkill1
Overkill2

Project Overkill was a short serial which ran in 2000 AD progs 119 to 126. Written by Kelvin Gosnell and drawn by Ian Gibson and Jesús Redondo, it concerned a taciturn individual named Captain Kenny Harris who discovered in a CIA file the existence of a sinister secret project which could hack any computer and reprogram any system, and which intended to wipe out humanity and leave Earth in the hands of the machines. Harris spent eight weekly episodes dealing with disappearing aircraft, multiple murders and alien implants before the turgid tale came to a merciful conclusion. The series was later reprinted in 2000 AD Extreme Edition #18 and as a back-up in the Quality Comics Bad Company US format reprint series.
