FUTURE SHOCK: THE STORY OF 2000AD

Paul Goodwin, UK, 2014, Severin Films, Documentary

The internationally-acclaimed documentary on the most controversial punk comic book of our time.

Great Britain, end of the ‘70s: Thatcher is in power, the Yorkshire Ripper’s on the loose, punk rock is on the rise and shite comics are widespread. But with the birth of indie upstart 2000AD, fans were introduced to visionary talent like Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Mark Millar -- and legendary characters like 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 editors, writers, artists and fans including Gaiman, Pat Mills, Alan Grant, John Wagner, Grant Morrison, Dave Gibbons, Geoff Barrow, Bryan Talbot, Emma Beeby, Kevin O’Neill, Brian Bolland, Carlos Ezquerra, Gary Erskine, Andy Diggle, Scott Ian, Geoff Barrow, Alex Garland, Karen Berger and more.
