BUMPS!
« on: 18 February, 2021, 11:11:27 PM »
Happy 44th birthday, 2000AD!

Actually, the precise day/date is a slightly confused issue because the date on Prog #1 was the off-sale date, and the prog’s early tag line — “in orbit every every Monday — has literally never been true…!

Happy birthday, Prog!  We 70s kids stick together.

Congrats and here is for the next 44 :)

Was it really four years ago that we (or many of us) were all in that there London to celebrate the 40th?

Happy Birthday 2000 AD.

Wow how did I miss that first time round - fantastic article. The first comment makes a good point - how many TVs have lasted since 1977 - the key difference being of course all those TV shows have been replaced, comics, alas not so much - well comics with actual comic strip making up more than say 20% or more of the content.

Yes, it's a great read.  I missed it the first time too.  Thanks, Mike!

It took a while, yeah! I had originally intended to try tracking down the missing issues throughout the year and present a revised version this year... but I forgot. :(

Giving someone the bumps for their birthday... I haven’t heard that in a while... :)

Now, where’s my pack of ready salted with the salt in a little sachet that I have to open and shake over my crisps....

Might be a nice idea for the 45th! Thanks for the article.
