Comments: 2000 A.D.'s first proper spin-off title, launched in 1986, Diceman combined new strips for established 2000 A.D. characters such as Judge Dredd, Sláine, Nemesis and Rogue Trooper with the then-fad for "choose your own adventure" gaming. Readers could follow their heroes through an adventure, and at some levels direct the action. Diceman only lasted five issues, and is somewhat of a curiousity, but noteworthy both because some of the tales therein have never been reprinted, and because the second issue introduced the titular character of Diceman, who never reappeared after the title died.
