The illustrated notes here cover the first part of chapter six of Roger Sabin's 'Comics, Comix and Graphic Novels: A History of Comic Art'. Chapter six follows the development of British comic into the 1980s. There are three main success at this time, 1) 2000AD with the Judge Dredd 2) Deadline with Tank Girl 3) Viz.
Each of these comics had something new to say in the field of superhero comics, arts comics and comedy comics, respectively. Each one increased the complexity of what had gone before it and this was possible and necessary because the comics audience was older. I have drawn so many notes for this section I have split them into two parts. The first part, here, deals with 2000AD and the second part, will be covering Deadline and Viz.
