Future Shock is the story behind the British science fiction comic 2000 AD! While many people think of Marvel and DC as the only cool comics around, they are still from the US and that is what makes 2000 AD different from the rest. This is why they have come up with Future Shock, it is a documentary that tells the full story of 2000 AD the comic that brought us Judge Dredd!
First published in 1977, it was violent, anti-authoritarian, blackly funny and above all, idiosyncratically British. FUTURE SHOCK! offers an comprehensive overview of the magazine’s history: a warts and all look at the various highs and lows, a peek inside the creative process of some of its most famous creators, and a funny, moving and passionate chronicle of how a band of talented eccentrics came together to create a visionary and extraordinary comic that is still a game-changer 38 years on.
