Pretty sure you are safe with those, 2000ad was standard IPC around that time, all my Busters etc. are that size. It gives measurements I see, might be worth giving your issues a once over with the tape measure just to be sure.
Maybe the seller has singled out 2000ad because more people would search for that title on eBay.

I'm thinking of having two on either side of the board in the bag...

I'll only do this for the better condition comics..the others I'll just have in a loose plastic bag..

I've got a lot to sort out...

Will also need Beano comic size bags and boards..

That is one thing I am bad at and that is bagging my comics.

My No.1 Collection are all in bags - most with backing boards but that is only a small portion of my collection.

But looking at the prices of the boards and bags at Amazon, it would cost me a fortune. :(
My Regulars:
2000 AD (1977), Judge Dredd Megazine (1990), Spaceship Away (2003), Commando (2013), Doctor Who: TFTTC (2016), MAD (2016), Deadpool Unleashed (2017), Marvel Legends (2017), Batman: TOTDK (2020).

those are from comicjohn on ebay... and size F will fit all old IPC titles - old 2000 ad, buster, whizzer @ chips, whoopee, etc.. not size H - they are meant for new size 2000 ad and modern comics. If you buy the boards, ensure they are size F also.

I have a few 2ad size backers and they are awesome and look great but years ago I just used collectorline 2ad bags and oridinary US sized backers just to stop box slippage that can cause all manner of calamity.
