Editorial Reviews


"Glorious artwork coupled with a compelling history of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic... compelling.... refreshingly candid... a must read." - SFX "Thirty years of editorial spats and creative fall-outs are laid bare with brutal honesty... this beautifully packaged and throughly researched book is a labour of love." - Deathray Magazine"

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This review is being drafted by an American, who once happened across some copies of 2000 AD, the astonishingly good science fiction weekly comics magazine from Great Britain, and became a fan for life. As any comics fan will realize from reading this book, many of today's top international comic book artists and writers started out working for 2000 AD, and this book covers every issue and period in great detail. Filled with artwork from the likes of Alan Davis, Brian Bolland, Mike McMahon, Steve Dillon and many others, THRILL-PACKED reminds us of what a major force of great comics that 2000 AD has been since the 1970's, and continues to be today. Recommended for anyone who loves great comics, edgy sci-fi and appreciates a good post-apocalyptic story told with quirky and intriguing characters.
