2000AD Prog 2010

As usual, the Christmas issue of 2000AD, the galaxy's greatest comic, is a bumper size issue to sustain readers through the long holiday period when the comic takes a rest (apparently some of the production droids need oiling or reprogramming) and the TV provides scant defence against the onslaught of boredom.

It is an ideal time to jump into the 2000AD maelstrom as the mix of continuing stories and seasonal one-off specials ease you in gently with just enough thrill power to hook you but not too much to fry your brains before they are attuned to the weekly fix.

It has been a very good year for 2000AD; we have had Judge Dredd posted to the Cursed Earth, Nicholas Dante quelled one rebellion and started another, and more great stories about Slaine, Strontium Dog and Sinister Dexter. And a lot more besides.

2000AD remains my favourite comic by quite some margin and I am sure that it will be just as good in 2010 as it was in 2009 and so on all the way back to 1977.
