Hefty book, hefty price, but well worth it. This is a mature look back at the history of 2000AD from its insiders. Bishop uses his position as ex-editor to talk to the creators themselves, and they don't hold back on the criticism.
However, it's not a negative book by any means. So few comics survive for 30 years and this is a worthy and positive tribute to its longevity.
Yes, it would have been nice to see unused character sketches, or photographs of the creators at work or at convention appearances, but this is the story of 2000AD the comic, and that's where it's focused. Some unused pages from the original "dummy issue" are shown, including the cover (when it was called AD2000).
Some books on comics are little more than boring plot resumés of the characters. This book is nothing like that thankfully! This is the "behind the scenes" story of the comic, and the industry surrounding it, from the horse's mouth as it were, warts and all.
