2000AD Prog 1

26 February 1977

I have written about 2000AD previously and my love for what is most definitely the most marvelous comic in the galaxy, but unfortunately the blog I posted them all to was deleted in a nasty WordPress accident a while back so I figured I’d start posting again on the subject. Rather than waffling on about how and why I love this comic so much let’s just jump straight in to the very first issue published in 1977.

These are photos of my actual copy. For A comic over forty years old even now it still looks amazing. I don’t have the red space spinner that came with it and whilst many collectors would be crazy about the copy with it attached I’m not overly fussed I just love being able to read it even if it isn’t in the best of conditions.

Judge Dredd was not actually in the very first copy and you can see in one of the photographs below it says he’s coming next week.

  1. Thanks I will be posting more of these and more regularly I managed to locate the box which had the first 70 or 80 ever produced so I’ve got loads of good ones to share

  2. Whaat!! Okay! OMG! One of my favorite memories are my Spiderman comics. I was around 11 years old and would spread them out on the floor and just stare at them. I only had twenty but they were a treasure. It wasn’t until my senior year in high school that I discovered JD! 😍 I think it was robot wars. I think. I can’t remember. Anyway! This is awesome! I’m kind of jelly right now. I lost those spiderman and I also had wonder woman and swamp thing. I love the punisher! I remember getting so excited when swamp thing movie came out! 😅😅😅😅 we actually took my grandmother to that movie. My poor grannny.
    Hugs! This is fantastic! 🙌

  3. Haha granny at swamp thing !

    I know the feeling is only having a few reading over again I drove in South Africa and we couldn’t get our hands on them very often and I had certain ones that I read so many times. I think you are probably thinking about the ABC Warriors I’ll see if I can dig something out on them for you.

    A new Judge Dredd launched in America just last week I believe

  4. Yes!!! OMG!! My head is so messed up. I’m going to look up online. Been a while. When I first got into Dredd my parents thought it was weird I was looking at these things. 😒 So I would have to sneak in to buy them off the discount book store. I think I read about twelve. I had them under my mattress, stashed like contraband. Lol! I did not get a lot of support for my comic book obsession. Otherwise… I might be be like you right now. I’m remembering that I kept one spiderman inside a journal. I’m going to see if I can find it in the attic. Oh! I’m excited. Damn! I’m old! 😅😅😅
