How much do you remember...?
The prog with Necropolis on the cover was the first one I ever bought.

Cool. Thanks. I'll probably add that soon.

Akira may actually have only been released in Japan in 1988. Not until 1991 in UK apparently.

At Last The 1988 Show...
(i.e. a timeline of 2000AD events from that year...)

All about the books and the 2000AD version.
Still the only straightforward literary adaptation in the comic's history?

Do any prequels to anything ever truly work, do you think?

It's twenty years (nearly) since this started. Was initially just called 'Enterprise,' of course.
Thinking of giving it a go. What do people think? (am not concerned about spoilers myself).
Did it work as a prequel?
Another question - which prequels to anything do you think have worked best?

Proud to see my own Judge Dredd story, Dear Billy, featured in Zarjaz 39. And pleased to see it mentioned in the ComicScene review too.
Artwork from the talented Sinclair Elliott.

Victor Ambrus. I do remember. Dracula and Blackbeard.
RIP him and Si Spencer too.

I admit I am guilty of shameless self-promotion here as I wrote some of the articles included.
But these four volumes include several 2000AD-related features which would undoubtedly be of interest to many people here. And I've not seen them mentioned anywhere on here, I can only assume people are entirely unaware of them? And you should know they at least exist.
They were published at the end of last year.
There are four magazines each representing a different year.
1977: features an article on the origins of 2000AD and another about the birth of Dredd (these were written by me).
The 1986 one contains features on Diceman magazine and Metalzoic (I wrote the last of these. And one on Watchmen). Lots of other comics stuff in all these volumes.
1984: One on Halo Jones. I just wrote about Transformers comic here.
1950: Obviously nothing about 2000AD here. Stuff on Dan Dare and The Eagle though.
I'm not exactly unbiased. But well worth a look, I'd say...


Despite the title, the 2020s are not really covered...
