Burt 2

Richard Burton was the assistant editor of 2000 AD (under Steve MacManus) from 1980 to 1983 and again in 1986, and the editor from 1987 to 1994, overseeing one of the comic's most difficult and challenging periods, and occasionally writing strips such as Tharg's Future Shocks. He was also parodied as the intellectually challenged Burt-1, the robot assistant of 2000 AD's alien editor Tharg, and appeared in several strips in that rôle. When not being Burt, Richard Burton started the Eagle Awards with Mike Conroy, created the character of Night Raven with Dez Skinn, and founded Sonic the Comic. He also worked on Tornado and Tiger. More recently, he has written for the Marvel Fact Files partwork.
