2000 AD is a weekly British science fiction comic magazine. It is an anthology that serialises stories such as Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog. It is known as being the stepping-off point for the careers of many prominent British professional comics creators including Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Grant Morrison, Brian Bolland, Mike McMahon, John Wagner, Alan Grant and Garth Ennis. Many of the magazines contributors and editors also came from comics fanzines. The current publisher is Rebellion Developments; the editor is known as Tharg the Mighty - a running joke that the editor is a green extraterrestrial from Betelgeuse who terms his readers "Earthlets". Tharg uses other unique alien expressions and even appears in his own comic strips and "uses" robots to produce the strips.

The magazine had an active fandom especially in the 1970s and 1980s, especially within zine fandom.
