However, 2K is the only post-war title to reach 2,000 issues, its nearest rivals being The Topper (1,963 issues) and Buster (1,907 issues).
I should also mention Commando, which has had more issues than any other comic (it's approaching 5,000!) and War Picture Library (which publishe 2,103 issues)... but they were monthly pocket books rather than weekly comics.
You can use these statistics to baffle some of the best of 2000AD's contributors on Saturday (1st October) as there is a mass signing across the UK, USA and Australia. Signings start at 1pm.
