* ArtifactTitle

to:

* ArtifactTitleArtifactTitle: When it first came out, the year 2000 was twenty three years away. Initially, nobody thought the comic would last into TheEighties, let alone the twenty first century. See {{Zeerust}}.


Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''Action'', which was banned in TheSeventies thanks to [[MoralGuardians Mary Whitehouse]]'s campaign. Science fiction was seen as relatively harmless compared to ''Action'''s content, so it was decided to push the envelope in that direction instead.

* PenName: John Wagner and Alan Grant wrote ''a lot'' of content together for the magazine in the 1980's, most of which were published under one of several pseudonyms Wagner had created (T.B. Grover perhaps being the most notable for their work in ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'') or credited to just one of them instead of both in order to avoid having entire issues with multiple strips from a single credited writer. The only strip where Wagner and Grant share a writing credit ''together'' under their ''real'' names is ''Ace Trucking Co.''

** This has been invoked a few times in order to disguise the fact that a seemingly unrelated story is actually part of one of the main strips. ''The Dead Man'' was credited to Keef Ripley, where it transpires that the burnt protagonist is [[spoiler: Judge Dredd]]. ''Lobster Random'' and ''Sinister Dexter'' had {{Shout Out}}s to this with the same technique.

* FantasticRacism: Whether it be about {{Mutants}} (''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'', ''ComicBook/StrontiumDog''), robots (''ComicBook/ABCWarriors'', ''Go Machine'') or aliens (''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock''), very strong anti racism messages are a recurring theme in the comic.

Added DiffLines:

* RussiaTakesOverTheWorld: The ''2000 AD'' story ''Invasion!'' explores this idea. Written in the 1980s at the end of the cold war, it explored the idea of a Russian invasion and takeover of Western Europe and Britain. (The Russians were thinly disguised as the "Volgans".) This was expanded into the later graphic novel series ''ComicBook/{{Savage}}''.

* GrandfatherClause: Pat Mills has stated that Tharg is kind of a silly concept, but any attempts to get rid of him have not gone down well with the fandom.

* OnlyYouCanRepopulateMyRace: One of the one-shot comics in ''Tharg's Terror Tales'' features a young man who, after being too frisky with his girlfriend and driving home afterwards, is beamed up by hawt aliens who want to mate with him. He eagerly agrees, only for them to morph back into their StarfishAliens forms to rape him to death with their tentacle suckers.
