Tyranny Rex
2000 AD prog 566 cover

By Steve Dillon

John Smith: "I sat down and in true mercenary fashion tried to think up a character a bit different to most of the ones already in the comic. There weren't too many female characters then and I was a big Sigourney Weaver fan. I roughed out this picture of her, gave her a tail, green skin and big gun, and sent it off with an outline. It was about the time William Gibson's Neuromancer had come out, so I added that cyberpunk riff as well just to make it cooler, more contemporary." Thrill-Power Overload by David Bishop.

Earthlet Austin Dibble of Lancaster: "I'd love to see Tyranny Rex make a return!" Letter published in 2000 AD prog 2061.

Tyranny Rex (narrating): "It's the self-expression through creative violence that makes me realise how lucky I am. I guess I'm just a romantic at heart." 2000 AD prog 583.

Narrator: "She closes her eyes. Slows her breathing, her heartbeat. There's a noise in her head like a coin spinning on glass, and the front of her skull opens like a flower. And suddenly she's OUT. Out of her body. The cage of her body. Moving through air: wood: stone. She can see fossils in the brickwork, a burst of tiny plant shrapnel, and then only the blizzard. Snowflakes falling through her, chiming as they fall. The world opens up like a map." 2000 AD prog 853.
