Flesh (UK Market)

By the 23rd century, most organic livestock is extinct, and mankind is surviving on synthetic food. Trans-Time corporation has managed to goes back to the age of dinosaurs to harvest their meat and beamed their flesh to the hungry future.
This strip created by Pat Mills and Boix, appeared in the very first issue of 2000 AD, and was in the spirit of Action's strip Hook Jaw, i.e. beasts savagely feasting on men on a weekly basis (see also Shako).
The story has been revived from time to time in the prog (sometimes without Mills on the script), but it has came back on a more regularly basis since 2011,  in the hands of artist James McKay.

Let's start with Flesh Book 1 that has ran in the prog for 19 episodes. All the strips have been either written (strip 1 for example), co-written or re-written by Pat Mils, with the help of Ken Armstrong, Studio Giolitti, Kelvin Gosnell and Geoffrey Miller.

In 2000 AD #302, there is an Alan Grant's Time Twister tales 'Dr. Dale's Diary' that features a time traveler who's responsible for Dinosaurs extinction. A certain 'Mills' theory' that "cowboys from the future ranched the dinosaurs into extinction" is evoked in the strip (reprinted in 2000 AD Annual 1989).


Most recent apparition.
