Here's hoping for another Droids signing event at Forbidden Planet London.

Ooh! That would good!   :)

Oh, that reads like we are getting a new Dredd and a new Durham Red?

Correct - plus a brand new Future Shock!


Henry has illustrated the FS and (imo) it is some of his best work yet.

Brilliant!!!

Love FCBD... well obviously I love getting free comics. But love it more cos we make a family thing of it too. Me, my son  & his fiance. We trek round Leeds together, compare our haul. We make sure we get what we all are after. We give doubles away to folk.

This year we went to Royal Armouries straight after for their Arms & Armour of Super Heroes & Villains weekend. Saw Pete Doherty there doing a 'How to Draw' thingy. Ellis got photoed with Iron Man. THEN we saw Iron Man 3. Brilliant Day!!!

We'll try to find some extra fun in 2014 too.

Jan Duursema, now that a blast from the past. Like Colin's guilty pleasure in KaZar, mine was Arion, Lord of Atlantis, which she created and drew. In my teenage years, with thoughts of being a great comicy type person, I wrote several continuing adventure of Arion, thankfully long lost! It will be nice to see her art again.

The cover is fantastic, and fair play to all involved, the effort look to be great that has gone into this.

I had a wee look at this beauty today and can't wait for the actual day itself now, so I can pick up mine :'(

The artist on Dredd was excellent, reminded me a little of the Mega-City Two stuff and someone else but I can't place it (sorry can't remember the name, I only flicked through it).

I thought the mix between new and old stuff was well placed! I couldn't tell if the Slaine was a new strip but it may have been, as I didn't recognise the art.

I also thought the one page strip at the end was very reminiscent of those funny Future Shocks from years back, this was Henry Flint and Annie Parkhouse. I would've loved the reveal to be on another page though, as I couldn't help but take in the whole page as I flicked through.

Available to order here for those without access to a comic shop:


http://www.disposableheroes.co.uk/free-comic-book-day-2014/fcbd-2014-2000-ad-special-net-/prod_26270.html

Thanks for that..have just ordered mine.

I wasn't on the forum this time last year so didn't know how to order the FCBD 2000AD. Is there any way to get it now or indeed any from previous years (not sure when it started)?

You can usually find the previous FCBD Progs on ebay and having just checked, all the previous three are available!

Can anyone remember how many of the previous three FCBD Progs featured original Judge Dredd stories?
Thank you.

IIRC it was just the last two that had new stories :)

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

I hate those Free Hugs bods at the conventions!

I always give out free hugs.
It's a joke. I was joking.

Disappointingly, failed to pick up last year's (you need to hit your Comic Shop in the a.m.???) so ordered last year's and preordered this year's  :)
Now I have to hunt for more?-( Ayiyi.

Very reminiscent of the space fleet eaten by a small dog in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, though with a rather disgusting twist.
