Halo Jones/2000AD features in Comic Scene
« on: 08 October, 2019, 01:19:09 pm »
Two features on the Galaxy's Greatest Comic are to appear in the magazine Comic Scene later in October.
(I will declare an interest here - I wrote them).
One is a timeline of key events in 2000AD history.
The other is on the long lamented Ballad of Halo Jones.

I live in Western Canada and was pleasantly surprised to find Comic Scene at my local book store (Chapters). I'll definitely pick up a copy.  Cheers

There's a 4 page little timeline of 2000ad strips and then a 3 pager on Halo.

Nice to see.

Saw a copy of this in my local PO, will pick it up when the queue dies down :-)
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Nice one!

The standard of the art on that timeline is pretty excellent.

Why did they use fan art instead of official works?

Speaking as a peddler of fan material I don't see why this was the direction chosen. It misrepresents the art in the prog.

No offence to any of the artists used but Sinx - did they ask you if they could use your work?

Because everyone featured bought a copy?
