The problem I've had getting back into 2000AD is that half the stories are great and half I just can't click with/have no idea what they were thinking.

For a minute there I thought that "Forbidden Planet" synopsis was written by "Richard Burton" (was actually "Bruton"). "Richard Burton" was the 2000AD editor back in the 80s/90s, and was never married to Elizabeth Taylor. I sent him a message once on Compuserve, or one of those prehistoric Bulletin Boards, and he was terribly nice to me. I w3as trying to flog them scripts at the time. Needless to say my career took a different path.

These days,2000ad is nowhere near as good as when it started.I don't like the style of drawing in it.I got dvds with 1500 issues from eBay and have been working my way through the them.the early issues are superb.

I somehow doubt they're official DVDs, huh?

Thing is... the art changes per story, per artist. That's kind of the thing.

Argument being that if the story and writing are good enough then it could be drawings of stickmen...

The recent Judge Dredd story - Mega-City Confidential - was superb. John Wagner at his best. Colin McNeil's artwork was very good too.

You're right, that's piracy!
