The Steel Sky
1)The Monoids are sufficiently goofy-looking. I can't think why our Steven hasn't brought them back.
2)"Have you been frootling about in my wardrobe?"
"If you go trying any frootling about in there, I'll blow your head off."
3)"The Monoids acquaint us of intruders."
4)"No, me nose is running." Ah, back at the start of Jackie Lane's run, when she was still occasionally trying to sound "Cockney".
5)"Nero, the Trojan Wars, the Daleks - but all that happened in the first segment of time."
6)Cliffhanger #1: Everyone may die of the cold!
7)This is interesting - the show has never really addressed much the idea that they might be spreading germs all around space and time. The Doctor pretty much just doesn't want to think about it.
8)"You still fear the unknown, like everyone else before you."
9)Good grief, what kind of plague was Dodo carrying?
10)"Now, once this crisis is over, I am going to teach you to speak English."
11)"Yes, I know I'm a bit of a quack..."
12)"The last moment has come." It looked better in "The End of the World".
13)Cliffhanger #2: The statue is a Monoid!
14)"It appears the Monoids have become overlords."
15)I wonder if the Refusians are related to the Spiridons?
16)That Monoid had a nice trip in the doorway.
17)Cliffhanger #3: The Doctor and Dodo are stranded on Refusis II.
18)"What about the bomb?" Good question.
19)OK, there were clearly some strings involved with those launchers.
20)Humans and Monoids having to learn to get along - it's like a precursor to the humans and Hath.
21)Cliffhanger #4: The Doctor sneezed so had he turned invisible!
Another fairly good story, where they tried something new. I think the First Doctor, Steven and Dodo are a pretty good team!
When I was in junior high school, my brother bought me a subscription to Omni magazine for a birthday or something. The Monoids looks like every weird painting every used within its pages.
Thanks. I saw a collection once of a SF strip, and I've not been able to figure out what it was. I thought the volume said the strip was from Omni, but I've never been able to find an indication on the net it ran comics, so I guess it wasn't.
From the Omni magazine wiki: "An equally short-lived spinoff magazine called OMNI Comix debuted in 1995, and was published in the same glossy, newsstand magazine format as its sister publications OMNI, Penthouse and Penthouse Comix. OMNI Comix ran for only three issues, and the third and final issue featured an abortive revival of the classic 1960's superhero series The THUNDER Agents."

Could that be what you're thinking of?
I'm interested to learn that existed, as it's a US comics title I hadn't heard of: but I saw the volume in question a decade or more earlier. I think the two protagonists, a man and woman, were able to release naked, bald versions of themselves they called their anti-matter selves. In the first story the male protagonist, an astronaut, underwent a transformation into this form and had a thought balloon along the lines "name astronaut is no more, now there is name, child of the sun". The stories had some sexual content.
