I used to read 2000 AD back in the late 70s, and I loved Ron Smith's Dredd especially. Real Time, eh? And he just happens to be the most successful British comics creation of the last generation... I will certainly be using that little fact. Thanks! Part of me wonders why I don't subscribe to the megazine. I might just pick it up again an have a look.
