Thargs Future Shocks.
« on: 12 September, 2011, 01:55:21 PM »
Hey guys. Just wanted to quickly pop in and share this cover with you that Jamie Roberts and I worked on for 2000AD's "Thargs Future Shocks" out later this year.



(sorry about the size of that scan)

This advert is from 2000AD Prog 1750 which is on shelves now.

Any and all feedback welcome.

G.

Love that cover- it's got a nice Rian Hughes feel to it.

There's a mistake on Grant Morrison's name...

Oops!
They've probably done that on purpose for copyright reasons... or something.

I fucking adored that cover.

I adore that cover.

And I'll modify to add that; no other artists in 2000ad could get away with Tharg wearing his hair that long without it looking that cool.

It's vibrant as the day is long and as beautiful as the day is currently windy.

One thing: That Shakara up there in the frame is pretty damned supervague.

I think a black and white Future Shock from the team responsible would be great.As long as they can get the facial expressions as concise as the do in the advert, each time. :)

Lets hope it's not in the same way as the tshirts (IE not at all)

Thank you for all the feedback guys, both positive and negative.

Thanks for the heads up on ordering James. I'll be getting a few of these myself - Christmas shopping = sorted.
