My first prog was #1, with the spacespinner stuck to the front with a strip of sellotap nearly tearing the cover in half! I got every other one up to around year 1983 with the exception of prog 3. I hunted high and low for this at the time but it was sold out everywhere... that Red Alert Survival Wallet must have been mightily sought after!

Every other one?  You bought on alternate weeks, or you bought every week up to 1983?  If you paused reading in 1983 then you picked the worst time to stop!

Each subsequent prog published, a bit silly to miss every second week! Then again it was very silly of me to totally stop reading in the mid 1980s. I'm at prog 436 in my "re-read" so have progressed far beyond where I originally stopped... now into uncharted territory for me!

Have I already replied to this thread? Can't remember.

Anyway, since prog 1. I'd been getting Krazy comic for a few months and though I'm not sure where I saw 2000 AD's inaugural issue (it might have been the TV commercial actually) I was an immediate convert.
