2000 AD To Publish Legendary Editor’s Memoirs!

Steve MacManus Memoir

To North American audiences, the name Steve MacManus might not mean much, but without him, there would be no Watchmen, Image Comics (if it existed at all) might look very different and such British import faves as  The Ballad of Halo Jones, Bad Company, or Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill’s Nemesis the Warlock would never have been – and the British Invasion that rejuvenated North American comics might well have not happened either.

Now, 2000 AD has added The Mighty One: My Life Inside the Nerve Centre, a memoir by Steve MacManus to its fall slate with a limited edition hardcover and a standard paperback edition hitting the shelves on September 8th. Pre-orders will be taken beginning  January 27th. Follow the jump for details.
