    Short summary describing this volume.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Tornado was an action/adventure weekly boys comic from 1979 - a companion title to 2000AD (in issue one Tharg the Mighty is seen shaking hands with Tornado editor Big E).

    The theme of the comic was heroes - heroes from the past, present and future. The stories covered everything from roman gladiators (Black Hawk) and World War 2 (Wagner's Walk) to contemporary characters (Wolfie Smith) and science fiction (Mars settlers in Angry Planet).

    Like its other IPC stablemate, Starlord, only 22 issues were produced before it merged with 2000AD (issue 127).

    A Summer Special was released in 1979 and two hardbacked Annuals followed in 1979 and 1980.

    Black Hawk and Wolfie Smith were the two standout strips that continued in 2000AD (along with humour strip Captain Klep).
