I have been reading 2000AD since prog 1, and if there is one message I could send to myself as a child, it would be to preserve all my progs forever in polybags. But I didn't do that, and I suppose my mother just threw them out when I left them on the living room floor. So I have been painstakingly rebuilding my collection for the last couple of years.
I live in France but will be back in the UK for the 40th Anniversary. Yay!
