genuinely uncomfortable in places, kinda puts you off quoting the day job... but a fascinating journey for any fan of the galaxy greatest comic!
I'll say from the start, I'm a fan of 2000AD and I'm a fan of Pat Mills, he IS the Godfather of British Comics, that said, I would have enjoyed this book without knowing either
If you've seen Future Shock! The documentary about 2000AD, you'll know some of the things being referenced, but this puts a lot more meat on the bones... and then adds some more bones. It's not just a history of 2000AD, it's a commentary on British Comics and is stuffed with so many things I never knew, (like the US is only the 3rd biggest market for comics). It explains how comics work, how stories are developed, how writers and artists cooperate and then how things can go wrong.
But is does all this with a mixture of Pat Mills' famous tirades, as well as humour and genuinely emotional moments
If you like 2000AD, or comics, or just publishing, writing and the process of story telling in general, I can't recommend it enough
