2000ad for me is a way of life. ive been buying it pretty much every wednesday of the last 20 years. i got through my adolescent years living in the world of judge dredd and nemesis, slaine and strontium dog. i better give some information to the uninitiated. 2000ad is a british made weekly comic that been about since 1977, no mean feat in the comic genre! it generally features five separate stories by different authors and artists. these stories come from the past, present and future and as such i think show why the comic has lasted so well. they really do have something for everyone.
another part of the comics beauty for me is the fact that it has grown up with its readership. when i was a wee lad buying it the stories seemed to have a youthful innocence, but nowadays they seem to have realised that those young people are still buying and have become adults, so now there is more of an adult content.
one downside is that as an anthology, i find i go through periods where there is maybe only one story that really grabs my attention. that isnt the case at the moment though, as the comic seems to be in a period of real quality. as its british, satire and irony are never far away, something often missing from the american produced comics. this is never truer than in the mighty judge dredd. a future policeman in a world with few civil rights. the lawmans word is law, he is judge, jury and executioner. he has been in the comic for since the 2nd issue and has lasted well. in this ever darkening world, his world seems more and more a possibility.
i wont say too much about the actual individual stories in the comic because they change so often. the creative teams working for the publication are cream of uk talent. many have broken out of the uk scene to score big in america, such as alan moore, alan davis, brian bolland, grant morrison, and many more.
on the whole 2000ad is a fine read that for an hour a week can transport you away from the real world to other dimensions, the past and the future. if you fancy that, comic reader or not, then give it a try. it might just alter your perception of life!

Hi, just a request. The formatting of your review makes it difficult to read.

I enjoy 2000ad, but prefer my American imports personally. Pete
