Toxic! was the idea of Pat Mills, Kevin O’Neill, Mike McMahon, John Wagner and Alan Grant. The aim was to provide creators an outlet for their work to be published with them retaining the rights and control of their work. This was in contrast to 2000 AD, which Mills had also launched in 1977. Toxic! was to be the main rival of 2000 AD, and would be in full colour throughout (as opposed to 2000 AD, which was still mainly published in black and white).
Toxic! was published by Apocalypse Ltd.
Toxic! was initially dominated by Mills His Marshal Law strip was seen as the flagship title and as a character to perhaps rival Judge Dredd.
Toxic! upped the levels of violence, bad language and general anarchic tone that Mills had felt was lacking in 2000 AD at the time.
