I was given an assignment to write an article about "2000 AD". The history of the magazine is older than I am and is filled with hundreds of names - it's quite confusing considering the fact that I had a chance to read only a couple of issues (nowhere to get them in Ukraine and that happens to be my country of residence).
So far I'm certain that Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman, "Hardware" and pathetic "Judge Dredd" movie, "Heavy Metal" cartoons will be mentioned.
So here are the questions I'd be delighted to get answers for:
- what do you think SHOULD be mentioned in a short history of "2000 AD"?
- what are the most interesting facts in the history of "2000 AD"?
- what artists and writers started their career in the magazine (except mentioned)? I'd like to picture the anthology as a cradle of creative minds, you see =)
The article is due on Friday and I'm going to start writing in... in about 18 hours.
Your help is very appreciated!
For your help I'll treat you to the scans of the magazine, when the article gets printed ;)
