They should have changed the title to 3000 AD - it's a bit stupid having a futuristic comic with a title that's 14 years out of date.

They did copyright the title 3000AD years ago with a one off comic as a free gift, but I think the general opinion is that 2000AD is such an established name / brand now that they'd be better off sticking with it. Besides, not all the strips are set in the future, some are centuries in the past, so the title isn't strictly reflective of the content.

I'm still worried if George Orwell's big brother is going to be watching us in 1984!!

The daily hate is certainly around in some places unfortunately, and it lasts longer than two minutes.
