2000AD...all at once



Feel the burn...

  1. Thank you for this Netherwerks. My geeky, misspent youth just flashed before my eyes. And lo, it was good. :)

    Coopdevil was right:

    If you are going to talk about standing on the shoulders of giants, then 2000AD is the giant that nobody remembers.

    2000AD: not only a veritable Who's Who of British comic talent, but also the source of the '90s comic antihero' archetype ...in 1977.

    The sudden transformation in art style (from classic Eagle/2000AD cluttered 'funny book' style to splash picture art) around 1:10 (~1990?) was unsettling. It just screamed 'new editorial policy', and possibly indicated a shift to new layout/printing technology.

  2. @Chris: 2000AD wasn't something that I could find as easily as the usual dreck that dominated the newsstands and drugstore racks when I was a kid, but I always hunted it out. It's right up there with Heay Metal and Warren 'zines like Eerie, for me at least, in termsof influence and sheer mind-warpage.

    Thanks for the link--and that quote! Good to know I'm not the only one, but then out here in the middle of a frozen wasteland, it sure feels like it at times...

  4. Thank you for posting this, I can remember buying the 1st issue with the free 'space spinner' on the cover and reading it up until issue 330 ? (the one with the Dredd badge on).
