Search/Destroy: A Strontium Dog Fan Film Goes Live!

Search/Destroy: A Strontium Dog Fan Film, a terrific 2000AD fan film from the makers of the excellent Judge Minty, is now free to watch online.

The film had an early premiere at the 2000AD 40th Anniversary event in London earlier this year, but this is of course the final cut with all the visual effects in place.

Announced last March, Matthew Simpson plays Johnny Alpha in the film and Kevin Horsham plays companion Wulf Sternhammer, directed by Steven Sterlacchini and Steve Green.

First created for Starlord comic by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra in 1978, Strontium Dog became part of the world of 2000AD when the two titles merged. Back in 2014, Judge Minty Director of Photography and Digital Imagery Steve Green said John Wagner, gave his public support to Judge Minty from the outset, asked the team if they would do a Strontium Dog film at the 2013 Lakes International Comic Art Festival.

From start to finish, it’s a terrific piece of work that should keep some of you waiting for Mega City One to go into production happy for a while. The cast are great, the action sequences, delivered as they are on a tight budget, impressive, especially the Western-style gun fight early in the film.

For me, this is a super taster of what a Johnny Alpha series or film could offer. Well worth a watch!
