2000 AD – The Original logo
Designed by Doug Church, this was the logo that blazed onto newsstands in 1977 – with its bold, curving line and chunky 3D letters looking like a horizontal exclamation mark ending in an explosive point, it was title, logo, and mission statement rolled into one! This T-shirt proudly bears the original logo for 2000 AD, the comic of the future, in glorious red and gold!
Created in 1978, Starlord was the sister comic to 2000 AD, a glossier, bigger, and pricer stablemate designed to cash in on 2000 AD‘s runaway success as sci-fi became the trend of the late 1970s. Although it was folded into 2000 AD after just 22 issues, it had an enduring impact on the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, with Strontium Dog becoming one of its biggest series and Ro-Busters spawning the popular series ABC Warriors.
By late 1978 Starlord may have gone but it lived on in 2000 AD – and became part of the iconic masthead! This T-shirts bears the classic logo that ran on 2000 AD from February to June 1979 (Progs 100-118). Created in 1978, Starlord was the sister comic to 2000 AD, a glossier, bigger, and pricer stablemate designed to cash in on 2000 AD’s runaway success as sci-fi became the trend of the late 1970s. Although it was folded into 2000 AD after just 22 issues, it had an enduring impact on the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, with Strontium Dog becoming one of its biggest series and Ro-Busters spawning the popular series ABC Warriors.
Starlord‘s impact on 2000 AD was long-lasting, and the combined logo went through TWO separate designs. This T-shirt bears the second 2000 AD/Starlord logo that ran on 2000 AD covers from June – August 1979 (Progs 119-126).
The second stablemate title to be folded into 2000 AD, Tornado ran for 22 issues between March and August 1979. Originally to be called Heroes and edited by “Big E” (otherwise known as artist Dave Gibbons in a superhero suit), Tornado featured stories such as The Mind of Wolfie Smith, Angry Planet, Blackhawk and the one-page comedy series Captain Klep. This logo ran on 2000 AD covers from October 1979 to April 1980 (Progs 134-159).
2000 AD – Classic ’80s arch
One of 2000 AD‘s longest-running logos, the futuristic, arching typeface greeted readers during the first great ‘golden age’ of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic in the 1980s. Bearing the legend ‘Featuring Judge Dredd’, this logo ran on 2000 AD covers from September 1980 to December 1987 (Progs 178-554).
2000 AD – 1990s ‘fan’ logo
Created by designer Steve Cook, the classic ‘fan’ logo debuted in 1988 with a major redesign of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Its cool, stylish lines and unconventional placement in the top left corner of the cover gave artists more space to innovate, with many of 2000 AD‘s most stunning covers appearing during its run on covers from January 1988 to June 1993 (Progs 555-841) and was the inspiration behind 2000 AD‘s current logo.
2000 AD – Rebellion era logo
Designer Steve Cook reimagined his classic ‘fan’ logo for the Rebellion era of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic – a new ‘golden age’ that has seen 2000 AD go from strength to strength! This logo has been a part of 2000 AD‘s covers since March 2001 (with a brief rectangular version between 2010 and 2011) to today – and into the future!
