General / Art and Writing Submissions

Hi everyone! I've been keen to send a writing submission to Tharg for some time, and notice the site still states subs are closed due to the pandemic. I've seen/heard no update in absolutely ages on when open submissions might reopen, and wondered if anybody might have any idea?

Hello all!

I've seen a few topics lately I'd be keen to join discussion on, and thought I'd make an account at last.

I know the Dredd 2012 marketing was given a hard time by some, but I have to say, it was the movie poster which grabbed my attention and the jumping-on point of IDW's concurrent issue #1 which first got me into the character.

I had passing awareness of the character beforehand and knew IDW's wasn't 'proper' Dredd (I have a vague memory of ten-year-old me being intrigued by the sight of 2000 AD at the newsagents, but it was always on the top shelf, and I was never quite sure if it was an actual comic or some form of teen+ magazine which used cartoon mascots, as they often seemed to do in the 1990s - a bait and switch if you ask me! Suffice to say, I never took the plunge).

I liked what I read nevertheless and promptly began with Case Files 01, and have never looked back :) My obsessive tendencies have taken hold and I'm now a die-hard Dreddverse fan, currently on a complete canon readthrough and putting together a full chronology for every story, including the various expanded media like the novels and audio dramas.

What else can I say? The worldbuilding and long-form storytelling are second to none. I haven't quite made the jump to AD proper with the other series, mainly because I know what I'm like and I really don't have space for a fifth bookcase!
