Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD charts the story of how the multi-award winning comic came to be, how it has survived for 37 years, and how it continues to be an innovator and game-changer in both comics and the wider cultural world beyond. This feature documentary is a funny, moving and passionate chronicle of how a band of talented eccentrics came together to create something both visionary and extraordinary.
The publication was violent, edgy, anti-authoritarian and blackly funny and introduced seminal creators such as Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman) to the comics world. The film features interviews with legendary fan-favourites writers and artists together with dynamic visual sequences that pay tribute to the ground-breaking artwork published in the comic throughout the years.
