Now... the art competition is not dead but it IS changing significantly after this. I've heaved it and wrestled it in its current form for six glorious years. It's been utterly extraordinary and I have to thank you all for your boundless creativity and enthusiasm which has made doing what must seem like a relatively onerous extracurricular task such a constant delight to carry out. I do of course intend to be heavily involved it what comes next...

STAY TUNED!

« on: 02 September, 2017, 09:15:47 am »
Last month marked the 40th anniversary of the FIRST EVER Future Shock - !

So this month I want you to pay tribute to your favourite episode - the most astonishing twist, the most bewildering setting - there are nearly 500 of these little self-contained stories peppered throughout the progs from no. 25 right til the present day. Which one stands out for you? Which was your first? Which chilled you to the core or made you laugh the most? GET DRAWING!

As ever, Barney has your memories ON FILE: http://2000ad.org/?zone=thrill&page=profiles&Comic=2000AD&choice=future

There will be a GN straight from the nerve centre for the winner of course, and one for Tharg's Choice -  - all entries will be viewable here, on our dedicated FB page, and also on the official 2000 AD Tumblr and Twitter!

Rules for the art comp are these:

- It must fit the theme.

- You can enter as many times as you like but bear in mind it will split your vote so it may not be worth it.

- All entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition - so nothing you've done for anything else.

- You can enter either here or by directly putting it on our FB wall here: https://www.facebook.com/2000adartcomp/

General / AUGUST ART COMP - MASSIMO BELARDINELLI
« on: 03 August, 2017, 12:29:36 am »
From July winner Andy Lambert (and also suggested quite some time ago by Sheridan):

Quote
I don't know if the forum has paid tribute to this comics legend, but if not, I think it's time it did. Early Dan Dare, ACE Trucking Co., early Slaine, Blackhawk, Harlem Heroes, Meltdown Man... so many classics.

Indeed rarely a month goes by when the Italian 80s prog stalwart is not mentioned - his wildly imaginative design work and his distinctive visual style make him one of 2000 AD's most iconic artists. He sadly died a decade ago but his legend lives on! So do have a go at one or more of his distinctive characters, pay tribute to his best moments, try to mimic his idiosyncratic approach...

As always BARNEY is your friend!

Books & Comics / The Psychedelic Journal
« on: 23 July, 2017, 09:36:24 pm »
Hello chaps :)

Me and Lady Geoffery my partner in TIME have been making small-press anthologies for years - and I know most of you have already seen it and all that but I thought now we were going to start sharing teasers for our new(ish) Wild West issue it'd be worth starting a thread for them here given they feature some folk from this stable!

You can buy the digital issue here: comicsy.co.uk/thepsychedelicjournal/

Our wraparound cover be this by the lovely Jordan Collver



and our first teaser of the issue is for a wyrd two-pager by Michael Kalin & our board's Darkjimbo here:

General / JULY ART COMP - THE WORLDS OF PAT MILLS
« on: 01 July, 2017, 12:08:38 pm »
From June winner Steven Denton:

IT'S PAT MILLS TIME

Raised by some recent discussions - the 2000 AD godfather. The political dynamo. He has boundless energy, endless creativity. He's often furious. He's often fantastic.  He helped guide our illustrious organ through its earliest days and created some of its most enduring characters. 

A.B.C. Warriors, Invasion, Charley's War, Deadlock, Defoe, Diceman, Dinosty, Finn, Flesh, Greysuit, M.A.C.H.1, Marshal Law, Nemesis the Warlock, Sexy Ostriches, Rico Dredd, Ro-Busters, Satanus, Black Siddha, Slaine, , Tweak, The Visible Man NEED I SAY MORE.

So let's pay tribute to this monolithic figure and his enduring and continuing legacy for which we owe so much - any of his characters, any of his memorable moments!

There will be a GN straight from the nerve centre for the winner of course, and one for Tharg's Choice -  - all entries will be viewable here, on our dedicated FB page, and also on the official 2000 AD Tumblr and Twitter!

General / JUNE ART COMP - EDMUND BAGWELL TRIBUTE
« on: 01 June, 2017, 07:48:52 am »
There was only ever going to be one theme this month. In June we'll be paying tribute to the incredible Edmund Bagwell.



He was one of the brightest stars of last decade or so of progs and his art style was distinctive and engrossing. There's an excellent memorial article on Down the Tubes which gives a detailed summary of his career but contestants for this may be looking to take on his iconic work on Cradlegrave or Indigo Prime, his memorable Future Shocks and Terror Tales or maybe even his amazing work on Ten-Seconders. As ever - Barney has what you need. It's a numbing and horrifying thing to lose an artist so young, but he left a short but enviable canon of work in the prog and legions of admirers. We'll miss him.

There will be a GN straight from the nerve centre for the winner of course, and one for Tharg's Choice -  - all entries will be viewable here, on our dedicated FB page, and also on the official 2000 AD Tumblr and Twitter!

Rules for the art comp are these:

- All entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition - so nothing you've done for anything else.
