It’s currently Friday afternoon in the Deep South Swamplands. By now, many British comic thrill-seekers will have the latest 2000 AD. To most of us, why am I talking 2000 AD in 2012 AD?

2000 AD compiles separate comics stories and delivers weekly Progs (issues). This is the anthology genre that’s extinct in mainstream American comics (Creator-Owned Heroes slightly exempted). The featured character that folks outside the UK know of is Judge Dredd.
