This was the Subscribers free gift from last year. A 2000AD notebook and pen. The paper is rather thin and not really sketchbook quality but I thought it would be fun to collect some Dredd head doodles from creators at various events over the last year: BrumCon, The Cursed Earth signing, FCBD, Lawgiver, NICEcon, Thought Bubble and finally the 40th Festival.

I asked artists for a doodle or sketch, I gave writers the option of doing a speech bubble although some braved a sketch. So it has the following:

I didn't quite control this project as well as I could so there were some mistakes along the way. Notably I thought it would be a clever idea to get John Wagner to do a speech bubble coming out of the mouth of Mick McMahon's Dredd. Unfortunately he used a black sharpie and the thin paper meant that bled through and ruined David Roach's pencil sketch. Sorry, David.

Likewise PJ Holden did his Dredd on the back of Mike Dowling's page but fortunately they don't overlap
However all the editors, artists and writers did this for free and fitted it in between other paying work and I’m very grateful to them all. Anyway I’m not sure this is suitable for an auction but after showing it to some fellow Squaxx in the queues at the 40th I’ve decided to put it up as a raffle prize and, as ever, for Cancer Research UK.

Here are the rules:
Go to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Megacitybookclub
The minimum allowed donation by Justgiving is £2, so it is £2 a ticket. You can of course buy more than one ticket. £10 = 5 entries and so on.
Please put Raffle in the comment and make sure you leave a name or forum handle that I will be able to identify you by if you win. If you want to be anonymous please send me a message identifying yourself.
Important, DO NOT TICK THE GIFT AID BOX because you are receiving a virtual raffle ticket in return for your donation.

The Raffle will run until Midnight on Saturday February  25th and the draw will be on the Sunday with me posting a video up on youtube.

You can see all the pages in this photobucket  album.

And some of the creators with their pages here
http://s144.photobucket.com/user/Caliban_photos/library/2000AD%20Notebook/Notebook%20creators
The winner will get a CD with all the creator images on it.

I’m going to post some highlight images below as well. Some of them have to be worth £2 alone. And that’s it, free postage in a well protected package. So spend the price of a cup of coffee and help a worthy cause for a chance to win an interesting 2000AD item (and the pen!)
