About Toothwatch

Q. What is Toothwatch?

A. Toothwatch is a guide to the comics work of writers and artists to 2000AD, as well as its related titles, such as the Judge Dredd Megazine and various 2000AD specials released over the years..

Q. What is 2000AD?

A. 2000AD is a long running British weekly anthology comic. The name "Toothwatch" is derived from the affectionate nickname, "Tooth", fans have given to the comic.

Q. What kind of content can I find on Toothwatch?

A. Release Listings :
Every week the regular Toothwatch listing details what comics will be shipped to speciality comic shops by Diamond Distribution. Comics normally arrive in stores on a Wednesday in America, and the following day, Thursday, in the UK. Our listings are dated for the Thursday, the day UK readers can get their comics.
The Toothwatch listing is also available on the alt.comics.2000ad newsgroup, either through your news server, or Google and by Email through the Toothwatch Yahoo Group.

News :
A News section also runs on the website, which will carry general news on 2000AD and The Megazine, as well as news on creator's work for other comics.

Creator Database :
The Creator Database lists the creators followed by Toothwatch and gives details of what work they have done for 2000AD, The Judge Dredd Megazine, or any other 2000AD titles.
The creator listing pages also have links to official websites where possible, and feature "recommended reading" links, leading to the artist or writer's other works.

Q. What notable creators are followed by Toothwatch?

A. We try to cover virtually everyone who has ever worked on 2000AD or The Megazine, meaning that the focus is generally on British writers and artists. DC Comics in America have also ran two Judge Dredd series, titled "Judge Dredd" and "Judge Dredd : Legends Of The Law". Although neither series is particularly fondly remembered by 2000AD fans, some writers and artists who contributed to the DC series are followed here, most notably Michael Avon Oeming.

There are no firm and fast rules for which creators are features, but generally, anyone who has written or drawn an original strip for 2000AD or The Megazine is included.

Q. Can I discuss the comics listed in Toothwatch anywhere?

A. Yes, in several places in fact. alt.comics.2000ad is probably where the majority of discussion takes place. Also, the Toothwatch mailing list can be used for discussion.

Q. How can I subscribe to the mailing list?

A. The easiest way is to send an Email to toothwatch-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
