Happy birthday 2000AD

When I was 35 I had a mortgage, a full-time office job and headaches.
2000AD is 35 this week and has killer viruses, dinosaurs, demons, aliens, mutants, werewolves…
I’m glad one of us hasn’t grown up.

I thought this landmark anniversary would be a good opportunity to write about our long history together; the weekly instalments of Thrill-Power I experienced as a kid, the multiple rejections and everything that followed.

My earliest memory of the UK’s foremost weekly science-fiction comic is the spectacle of two giant demolition robots smashing each other to pieces in the middle of an English town.
