2000AD: The Galaxy's Greatest Comic Thread


Only reason I’m posting this here is for Bolland fans, as there is a link explored with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (and a couple other shows).
For those this is ALL SPOILERS!!!

Got that? Shitload o’ SPOILERS!


On the :steam_locomotive: now heading to the 2000AD 40th birthday bash :grin:


Me and my hero - Greenock boys


Enthusiasm only gets you so far, especially when you’re not actually involved with the project.

“While we truly do appreciate Adi’s enthusiasm for Judge Dredd, he has no involvement with the franchise and any future cinematic or small screen outings.

“Claims of him pushing forward a sequel to DREDD are not true and we don’t want fans to get excited only to have their hopes dashed."


Thought Bubble have finally uploaded videos from the 2016 event, including the 2000AD Writing Competion. At least four out of the first half-a-dozen pitchers are MillarWorlders :astonished: #rabbitsintheheadlights



I have one of those issues. (I bet you can’t guess which one :wink: )


Whichever one has Supergirl or Legion of Superheroes reprints in it?


You joke, but I bet it is actually the one that comes with a ‘flight ring’. :slight_smile:


Ohhh :laughing:


Would be interesting if somebody could put up the 10th, 20th and 30th anniversary covers for comparison.

(Yes, I know I could search for them, but I’m really lazy :stuck_out_tongue: )



My copy of the 40th anniversary special arrived yesterday and I read it on the train to work today. Dredd was a by the numbers police procedural tale but it was by Wagner so it was still good and it also featured Carl Critchlow who has evolved his art style yet again and I really like it. Zombo was barminess personified as you’d expect, Ro-Busters was okay, Durham Red was the weakest strip with some dodgy scripting, Slaine had crisp clean vibrant art by the Davis droid and Nikolai Dante was like putting on an old comfy pair of slippers. It just felt right. Overall, although nothing was bad I did feel the whole thing was very light and was probably the worst ‘special’ 2000 ad has put out the last few years.


Some details on the collections of classics that Rebellion recently obtained the rights to.


That was the one Lauren Beukes wrote? If so that’s a shame, she’s a great novelist.


This is Bobby’s review remember, I thought it was a perfectly fine Strontium Dog story.


Good point.

Everyone read Zoo City! It’s great!


I remember reading The Leopard From Lime Street in Tiger comic as a kid (and Faceache was the best story in Buster). The rest are unknown to me. Well I did read pretty much all of Scream so should know the Dracula one but have zero recollection of it.


I only remember half of those titles, and I’m definitely interested in re-reading them. Which means I’ll probably pick up the ones I don’t know too, as the editors seem to have pretty good judgement.

I’m really happy somebody’s finally filling in these gaps in British comics history.


Survivors Club for Vertigo was pretty cool as well
