2000 AD is edited by Tharg the Mighty, who could probably give Rebekah Brooks a run for her money as most sinister editor. This extra-terrestrial (apparently from Betelgeuse) has assembled over the years the work of some of the finest comic books talent anywhere.
Comic books in America during the 1990s went through a frankly rather poor period. There were huge amounts of confusion arising from muddled continuity, bizarre crossovers and convoluted storylines, and the only upcoming talent that threatened to overthrow the established comic status quo was from the like of Rob Liefeld, who focused on brainless heroes with a penchant for massive guns and even more massive muscles. Comic books were in a bad place, and the shining light of difference was to come from Britain.
The work of Alan Moore – creator of the legendary Watchmen series – and Neil Gaiman – author of The Sandman – was to offer a different take on comics, one that didn’t rely exclusively on outrageous muscles and over the top action. This isn’t to say that they were boring, merely that they offered a nuanced, more intelligent set of characters and settings, something always welcome. And, of course, it was at 2000 AD where they first achieved success. NB
