Movie Info

A film charting the story of how the multi-award winning comic 2000AD came to be, how it has survived for 37 years, and how it continues to be an innovator and game-changer in both comics and the wider cultural world beyond. The publication was violent, edgy, anti-authoritarian and blackly funny and introduced seminal creators such as Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Grant Morrison (Arkham Asylum) to the comics world.

There are only so many times you can be told how unbelievably great something is without starting to hate it a little bit.

For those with even a passing interest in comic books this is perhaps the best documentary of its kind.

December 16, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Director Paul Goodwin provides fans with an exhaustive oral history and conveys the comic's bold house-style by interspersing interviews with animation.

December 6, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Skilfully assembled and comprehensive in its research, this is a must-see for comic fans and essential viewing for Dredd-heads.

It's not just for fans, but it might make some new ones.

While the 2000AD British "brotherhood" put staid American efforts such as Superman in the shade, this film is mostly a series of middle-aged talking heads nostalgically discussing a past that we barely glimpse.
