Comics Bulletin review all the FCBD offerings, including 2000AD’s and they liked it:
The British sense of humor is the greatest sense of humor in the world, sod you America, and hurray for 2000AD. YEAH. I’m putting that out there. Feel offended, you guys. The offering this year comes in the form of a mini-magazine, compiling a few of the stronger characters from the past few years and getting top-notch writers like Al Ewing and Rob Williams to write them. Both writers create the standout stories from the issue, with Williams’ Ichabod Azrael western story a particular delight. There’s not only a devilish sense of humor through all these stories — which is compounded by the adverts, which are just as much fun in some cases — but a sense of meanness you just don’t get in American comics. The writers are free to do whatever cruel things they want to their characters, and create unfair landscapes for these genre-driven pieces to inherit. It’s a great advert for 2000AD as a whole, with a new intro from original Judge Dreddcreator John Wagner and interesting stories. Also there’s a black-and-white Alan Moore story at the back, if that’s the sort of thing you like.
