The Story begins in a garden shed in Scotland sometime in 1971...

2000AD  and Judge Dredd celebrated it's 40th Birthday in 2017 and Pat at last has written the definitive history of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, and the turbulent, extraordinary and exciting events that shaped it.

'Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave!' is the infamous slogan of Torquemada, the comic's favourite villain. It once appeared on the Berlin Wall, and symbolises the subversive nature of 2000AD that changed so many readers' lives and influenced generations of film directors, actors, rock bands, novelists and even school headmasters.

Everything you've always wanted to know about Judge Dredd, Slaine, Nemesis, ABC Warriors, Flesh, Bill Savage and more, is in this book. Plus the writers and artists who created them and the real-life people and events they drew on for inspiration.  The scandals, the back-stabbing and the shocking story that was regarded as "too sensitive" to ever see the light of day is finally told.
