Here's a checklist taken from an interview with Massimo Belardinelli in the 1985 2000AD Annual. I reckon that 1985 is the best of all of the annuals that I've read so far. It's got a fantastic selection of famous faces: Joe Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Sláine, ABC Warriors, to name but a few.
Massimo cites fellow Italian Gustave Doré as being a huge influence on him in his youth. See Gustav's vision of Arachne below... yep crazy shit! ;-)

I love this snippet of a Moonrunners story which sees Goethe having a psychotic episode. In my opinion, this is Massimo at his best.
Here's Massimo's attempt at a 2000AD cover. Check out G-B-H (top left)... Is this Massimo's take on a zombie?
Okay, I'd better close this off with a snatch of M.A.C.H.1... 2000AD's answer to the bionic man.
