Welcome to Tom's 2000AD page

2000AD is a weekly Science Fiction/Fantasy Magazine in comic format. Which was started in 1977 and has continued with only six week gap for the last twenty-three years. Although it started as pure science-fiction the introduction of Sláine (in 1985) changed than notion slightly. ( recently Button Man,Mazeworld )
The first issue was called Programme ( or Prog. for short ) 1 and this has continued to the present day after over 1360 weekly issues, mostly 32 pages each. ( features such as in Prog. 1000's supplement and specials give a full history of 2000AD. )
This web-site is completely unoffical. And is based around my favourite stories from 2000AD and related magazines. It's quite big so wander around. 2000AD has a breeding for great comics writers and artists and has a number of related titles come and go, most of which are mentioned below.

[2000AD has remained called titled 2000AD before, during and after the year of 2000AD]

Best of 2000AD Monthly lasted 10 years ( from October 1985 -> August 1995, 119 issues) showcasing the best of 2000ad then they changed the name to 'Classic 2000AD' at the time of release of The Judge Dredd movie, and after 15 months it had disappeared. (Issue #15)
Index to The Best of 2000AD Monthly
A similar feat meet Complete Judge Dredd, renamed Classic Judge Dredd. It started to reprint all Judge Dredd stories from Prog 2, ( about 11 episodes a issue Priced from 90p to £1.25 a good way get classics like "The day the law died" #8-10, "Block Mania/Apocalypse War" #23-25 Complete Judge Dredd ) but only got to the OZ epic ( #15 Classic Judge Dredd )
Additionally there have been 3 issues of 'Best of 2000AD special edition'. First 2 printed in 1993 and 1994 featured a mix of colour annual/specials stories and short series such as 'Chopper: Soul on Fire' and 'Tribal Memories' in a 132 page paperback book format. The third 80 page issue printed in Summer 1999, to warm-up to Prog 2000. (Introducing Strontium Dog, ABC Warrior, Nemesis and original Rogue Trooper to new readers)

Quality Comics and Eagles Comics also reprinted Judge Dredd and 2000AD stories mostly for the US market, (I never bought them)

Graphic Novels Many 2000AD stories were reprinted by first Titan then Hamlyn Books ( include Hamlyn's Mandarin imprint ) and Fleetway. The only original stories first printed in a 2000ad graphic novels were the Judge Dredd/Batman crossovers written by Alan Grant and John Wagner, best and most successful was the first Judgement on Gotham. The next two 'Ulimate Riddle' and 'Judgement On Gotham' featured art by Carl Critchlow and Cam Kenndy represectily. The latest crossover was 'Die Laughing' by John Wagner/Alan Grant & Glenn Fabry/Jim Murray released in 2 books ( first in October 98, second in Nov. 98 ). Five years in the making
It seems both Simon Bisley and Jim Murray have used these crossovers as showcases of their artwork to the massive US audience.
