These comics originally appeared in DEADLINE magazine back in the late 80's. Johnny Nemo is a creation of Peter Milligan, Brett Ewins and Steve Dillon. He's a sardonic, satirical take on a Chandleresque tough-guy private eye, set in a bizarro, crazed-future world not unlike the lighter moments in JUDGE DREDD. There's great fun to be had here, even if the package itself is a bit shoddy (a thin reprint volume by some outfit called Cyberosia that double prints one page such that part of a story is ...more

Down these mean streets a man must go who's the meanest bastard of them all. On one level, the saga of Johnny Nemo works as sheer simple thrill-power (it's from Strange Days not 2000AD, but emphatically a child of the same blackly comic vision of the future as the present replayed with bigger guns). Johnny has an improbable coat and excellent hair, and shoots and shags his way around a decadent, ultra-capitalist future London all too close to the real thing. But he also has just enough in the wa ...more

Interesting Character, would have like more of Johnny Nemo and his world. Sad really it got over in three issues. Nemo is a crazy detective/manic in a crazy drugged up world.

Not really for me, but there were a few funny bits, especially the bizarro Bing Crosby story.

Fun collection of stories featuring Johnny Nemo futuristic detective/hit man who operates in a weird noir/surreal future full of flying cars, robots and aliens.
mixes genres with just the right mix of humor and violence and tweaking of the cliches of both genres.

While a street-wise PI, Johnny tends to deal with things by shooting something or punching them. He also always gets the girl, as well as having a hot robot secretary.
Like Bladerunner mixed with 80's new wave and Hanna-Barbara cartoons.

Excellent, early Peter Milligan work. Would love to see him return to this character some day.
