40 YEARS OF 2000AD
There's nothing more influential on my imagination and in my comics than the UK's premier young adult comic 2000 AD, which celebrated it's 40th birthday recently. Yes that's right the home of Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper is middle aged. As a teenager, apart from Doctor Who, there was nothing more exciting than opening a new prog (issue) every two weeks. Unlike in America where newsagents' shelves heave with single character comic books, we had to do with this excellent collection of stories with much more variety in art styles and stories than you would have found in 100 different books from DC or Marvel.
It was my first experiences of the writings of Alan Moore, Pat Mills and Joh Wagner and the art of Dave McKean, Dave Gibbons and Steve Dillon.
It's been a long time since I've had time to read the latest thrill news and I admit a difficulty in finding it abroad, but I thank editor Thraags and his driods for their inspiration getting me through an eventful childhood.
Always a BIG THANK YOU to my patrons and supporters for supporting my endeavour and in bringing 29 exciting issues of Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance.
Next Issue, Next Book:
Lanka City will arise as RAMA makes the final leg of his journey to fulfil his destiny in BOOK 5 BRIDGE
