Great Britain, end of the '70s: with the birth of indie upstart 2000AD, fans were introduced to visionary talent like Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison and Mark Millar, and Rogue Trooper, Halo Jones and Judge Dredd. Yet what happened next to this nihilistic, ultra-violent universe may be the biggest shocker of all. This is the "brilliant" (Flickfeast), "essential" (ScreenAnarchy.com) and "scurrilous" (Empire) story of the galaxy's greatest comic, featuring interviews with editors, writers, artists and fans.

Including Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Dave Gibbons, Pat Mills, Alan Grant, Kevin O'Neill, Brian Bolland, Jock, John Wagner, Peter Milligan, Geoff Darrow, Bryan Talbot, Emma Beeby, Carlos Ezquerra, Gary Erskine, Andy Diggle, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Alex Garland, Karen Berger and more.

Without 2000AD there would be no Watchmen, no Sandman, no Preacher — as the entire creative core of DC's influential Vertigo Imprint was sourced from the pages of this single, British weekly publication. The influence of this highly literate group of anarchists is still felt today, from Doom Patrol to X-Men and throughout the Batman franchise.

Extended interview with Morrison, Berger, Mills, Gaiman and Gibbons. Plus all kinds of other extras: extended sequences, Behind the Strips, Production Extras.

"A fantastic documentary...A long overdue warts-and-all account." IGN

Music by Justin Graves, animation by 3PS & Staton Media.
