Having read 2000AD from its birth in 1977 to the present day it is refreshing that the comic has survived so long. Having also read a number of US comics its clear to see how 2000AD's Britishness has ensured it maintain its position as the number one UK anthology of science fiction. Its serialised stories also cover the genres of horror and speculative fiction. Its closest parallel is probably the DC series The Invisibles in terms of these, but few other charcaters come close to the seminal Judge Dredd - who was sidelined in the first issue by Dan Dare! The size and printing have changed a few times over the years and the artwork has evolved with digital process to produce stunning panormas such as those produced for ABC Warriors, Durham Red and Slaine by Clint Langley.
