Released to mark 2000 AD‘s landmark 45th anniversary, 2000 AD Encyclopedia celebrates over four decades of sci-fi, biting dystopian satire and glorious fantasy by giving readers chapter and verse on this enthralling universe of Thrills, detailing the characters and stories that have helped make 2000 AD a groundbreaking comic book.
