Fun documentary talks to nearly all of the key folks who were part of 2000AD since the beginning, but I'm not sure if this documentary will be of all that much interest to anyone who's not already a fan of the seminal British sci-fi comic. For those unfamiliar, 2000AD was a punk rock comic book at time when comics were mostly routine superheroes and villains, inserting social commentary and controversial topics into a shockingly violent sci-fi stories. Judge Dreddd is the most famous character to come out of the comic, providing an interesting commentary on freedom, justice, democracy, and innumerable other contemporary issues, all set within a future United States that's been devastated by nuclear war and is now comprised of two "Mega Cities" on each coast and a wasteland between the two. In those cities the justice system has been streamlined where the Judges serve as the police, judge, jury, and executioner, issuing out instant justice on the streets. Dredd is less of a character and is more of a vehicle by which a variety of stories can be told around through the rich tapestry that comprises Mega City One. This film is less about Dredd or the major characters and series to come out of the book, but is more about the ups and downs of the comics' 50-plus year history, starting back in the late 1970s. I actually still collect the comic and it's awesome that a number of the original creators of the comic are still regularly creating content for the publication (John Wagner, who co-created Dredd, is still writing stories on a regular basis and is controlling the series main story arc). But on top of that, many of the new generation of popular creators who all grew up reading the original comics and are now the ones making their own cleaver, edgy, original content. It's a lot of fun to put a face and voice to these creators who I've read their names all these years and hear them tell their story of the comic (the most interesting moment in their history is hearing from Neil Gaiman and other how he, Alan Moore, and others left for DC and Marvel in the US, helping rejuvenate dull US comics the same way they did British comics). It's also fun to hear the original creators of the comic and the new generation of writers and artists talk about how the comic is still going strong now because they have embraced being a niche comic and are no longer worried about trying to appeal to a mass audience, as was a tried during a corporate takeover in the 90s that that when horribly wrong. On the downside to this documentary, I was already pretty familiar with the history of 2000AD from a lengthy series of articles included in the Judge Dredd Magazine several years ago, which meant that this documentary didn't provide any new information or new insights. Still, seeing the many creators in person talking about their history with the comic, many of whom have gone on to be icons in the industry, was enough to keep my interest and make this worth watching.
