Things you weren't aware of - Number One

Part One in an irregular series where interesting things you weren't aware of are showcased. With free binder.

All right-minded people know and love 2000AD. But I, for one, was unaware of the existence of Big Dave...

'By far the most controversial story of this run, though, was Big Dave, a satire of British tabloid attitudes starring "Manchester's hardest man". In Big Dave's world, the German national football team really are Nazis, single mothers really do get a fortune in state handouts, Diana, Princess of Wales and Sarah, Duchess of York are portrayed as gold-digging tarts making fools of the Royal family, and Saddam Hussein, who rides an ostrich, is in league with aliens who want to turn earthlings into "poofs".... Big Dave divided readers like nothing else the comic had ever published.' From here.
