Tharg was the alien editor of 2000AD from Prog 1 to the present, except for a short period in which the Men in Black took over.

He did not understand laughter[1].

His home planet was Betelgeuse VI[2].

His race (at that time referred to as 'Thargians') looked upon hair as a unique and individual feature which was genetically implanted at an early age[3].

When subjected to direct sunlight, Tharg's skin turns purple (the Betelgeusian version of tanning)[4].

Tharg has a sister, Marg[5].

Behind the ScenesEdit

This article is about the real world.
Unlike most articles on 2000ADopedia, this article is about a person, company or publication in the real world. Please include verifiable references for all statements made.
While the fictional editor of 2000AD has remained the same throughout most of 2000AD's history, the human editor (usually depicted in the comic as a robotic sub-editor) has changed down the years[6].

During Kelvin Gosnell's editorship he actually spent most of his time working on Starlord, Nick Landau, the assistant editor actually edited 2000AD.
