The 2000 AD comic always looked a bit scary to me (I was more of a Whizzer & Chips man), so I missed out on the "galaxy's greatest comic". But it's been forty years since it came out now, so the Cartoon Museum are putting on a little exhibition of its artwork.

"Future Shock: 40 Years of 2000 AD" will include eighty pages of its artwork, and include popular characters like Strontium Dog, Rogue Trooper, Halo Jones, and, of course, their futuristic lawman Judge Dredd.

2000 AD was great at letting their artist's imagination run riot, leading them to create battle-torn planets, interstellar space fleets, and mega-cities of the future (..but let's gloss over the fact that 2000 AD is now seventeen years in the past -- doesn't that make you feel old!). Forget Desperate Dan and Dennis the Menace... 2000 AD had killer robots, mad mutants and death-dealing demons.
