Q: What is SPACE BASTARDS? A: It’s everything 2000ad should be.

That’s right. And these guys didn’t stop after making one comic. They didn’t stop after making the first hardcover. So far, they have produced a year’s worth of content (over 500 pages) in collaboration with their artistic heroes, namely:
Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Happy!) Simon Bisley (Lobo, Slaine, Heavy Metal) Boo Cook (Elephantmen, Judge Anderson) Colin MacNeil (America, Judge Dredd) Clint Langley (ABC Warriors, 2000AD, Marvel) Glenn Fabry (Slaine, 2000AD, Marvel)
