Happy 40th birthday 2000 AD

2000adlogo

 

Forty years ago today British comic 2000 AD published its first Prog and introduced us to a galaxy of characters that continue to thrill, amaze, astound, horrify and charm us to this day. Its characters, adverts, toys and covers have been popular here at TVTA over the past six years, so here is a selection of previously published images and a few new ones to celebrate the milestone. Happy 40th 2000 AD!

L to R : Judges Anderson, Death and Dredd.

Welcome to part 4 of TVTA’s series Never Mind The Adverts.

In this edition we focus on the 1999 Re-Action Figures line for British comic 2000 AD. The series was short-lived, but did provide a good choice of classic characters from the comics. The loose set I picked up was complete but for the Durham Red and Johnny Alpha figures as featured in Strontium Dog. Included below are pictures of Judges Anderson, Dredd and Death from Judge Dredd, followed by Slaine and Ukko from Slaine.
