Richard S.:
about halfway through it so far - really enjoying the comic strips.

As ever, the non-comic strips needed another proof-read* - it's "The Sweeney" not "The Sweeny" and it's "Phil Gascoine" not "Phil Gascoigne"


*I'm sure they were proof-read plenty of times, but, y'know, it needed to be done again

Perhaps there’s something amiss at the Nerve Centre in terms of resource. The 45th anniversary book is a lovely object, but the first page of text alone (the intro) is littered with errors. (I just quickly went through it and found nine in a single pass – more if you were to align with broadly standard style across modern press.) That just seems odd to me.

IndigoPrime:
Having read a few more pages of this, it’s bizarre. It’s like a first draft escaped into the wild. It’s a good job the book is mostly about the art; but, honestly, if 2000 AD was edited like this, I’d have a hard time reading it.
