Thrill-Power Overload

This blogger is writing a history of 2000AD (the comic of Judge Dredd fame for all you ignorami). Seems that it nearly got closed due to being a bastion of union militancy. Cool.

Thrill-Power Overload: quoting an IPC boss: "I would say the most militant union officials at IPC were in the Youth Group. I decided to make a point. We would have to lose a title or two to concentrate our resources on fewer titles when the strike was over. The one I wanted to close was 2000 AD. There were two reasons for this. One was that it had the most militants around it, and the other was its closure would make the greatest impact on the rest of the Youth Group staff."
