Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said: “For 25
years, 2000 AD has brought us some of the most striking icons of British comics
– everything from Judge Dredd’s badge to the comic’s changing logo.
“Now, thanks to Titan Merchandise, faithful
readers can show that they are true Squaxx dek Thargo by purchasing
“No traffic warden will dare give you a
ticket and no thief will want to make off with your buss pass when they see the
stamp of Thrill-power!”
Andrew Sumner, director of Titan Merchandise,
said: “2000 AD has been on the cutting edge of the British comics industry
since I bought my first thrill-powered copy in February 1977. To most people, including me, it IS the British
comics industry. It’s a real privilege for Titan Merchandise to be producing
the range of inventive, quality 2000 AD products that Tharg the Mighty and his
mind-blowing legion of iconic characters deserve.”
