General / Help! Specific Image Needed…
« on: 07 August, 2021, 12:13:31 PM »
Can anyone help me out with this? I need a decent resolution scan (or capture from digital) of some specific images — I can't remember which of the end-of-year progs it was in, and my back progs are scattered across multiple boxes and locations.

You'll know the one I mean — the story is the Alan Grant penned/Cam Kennedy illustrated Dredd with John Wagner in a flying bath. If any one can help me out with some of the panels of John from that episode, you'd have my undying gratitude. :)

General / The DAVE EVANS TRIBUTE BOOK — LAST(ish) CALL
« on: 29 May, 2021, 08:34:28 AM »
I know not everyone reads every thread on here, so I wanted to break this out, just in case.

The Art Comp this month was for Strontium Dog-based art tributes, or text of any kind, to the much-missed Bolt-01 (Dave Evans) and, as I said on there:

Quote
At the end of the month, I'd like to gather everything together and see if we can't get a printed collection made up that I'm hoping some kind soul will forward to Dave's family. I can't imagine what they're going through, but I thought it might be nice for them to have some permanent record of how well-loved Dave was here.

With hindsight, using the Art Comp thread for submissions might have caused some people to overlook it, and I don't want anyone to miss out, hence this separate post.

The ostensible deadline for submissions is the end of the month, but I still have some contributions to come via email so I won't be thinking about making a start for at least another week.

Many of you have said some wonderful things over on the RIP thread, too, but I don't want to go harvesting quotes from people without their explicit permission. At the same time, as I say, I don't want people to feel they've missed out when they would have liked to contribute.

If you posted on the RIP thread and would like your words including in the book, then just say so here and I'll take that as permission to quote you from the other thread. If you want to post some specific text here, then please feel free.

If you feel like you don't have any words, but would like to express condolences anyway, then I'm open to the idea of a page of general sympathy/condolence with a list of names. If you'd like to be included in that, then, again, you can post here to that effect.

General / 2000AD Forum Sketch Comp #4: SPECIAL BOLT-01 EDITION
« on: 08 May, 2021, 09:41:21 AM »
Normal service will be resumed next month, with Tomwe's cracking theme, but I didn't feel like we could just press ahead as normal this month in light of the heart-breaking news about Dave.

So we're going to do something different.

This month, the theme is STRONTS.

Anything Strontium Dog related is fair game. We're not going to vote — I'm just going to leave the thread open until May 31st. Take as long as you like over your entry — if you want to use Dave's preferred medium of biro-on-Post-It, that's cool. If you want to give us some lovingly-rendered full colour wonder, that's cool, too, as is anything inbetween.

Not an artist? That's fine. If you want to write something, there's a place for that here, too. Doesn't have to be Stront-based — if you've just got something you want to share about Dave, share away.

At the end of the month, I'd like to gather everything together and see if we can't get a printed collection made up that I'm hoping some kind soul will forward to Dave's family. I can't imagine what they're going through, but I thought it might be nice for them to have some permanent record of how well-loved Dave was here.

Over to you, my friends.

« on: 02 May, 2021, 09:00:09 AM »
Sorry for the delay getting these votes tallied and the results posted… it's been quite a week.

Annnnyway, finally it's time to announce the winners of the thoroughly thrill-charged third Unofficial Sketch Competition!

In THIRD PLACE, it's…



Colin YNWA #4

In SECOND PLACE, we have…



Dark Jimbo

And, by a whisker, the WINNER is…



Tomwe #2

Congratulations to all our worthy winners, to everyone who contributed so many fantastic entries, and to all of you who took the time to grapple with the impossible task of picking their favourites and casting their votes.

Take a bow, Tomwe, and bask in the radiant glory of your well-deserved win. I'll pop you a PM shortly so we can get your prizes sent to you, and I'd ask you to pop your thinking cap on and consider a theme for competition #4, which will be along in the next few days…

Books & Comics / Kiss His Axe…?
« on: 24 April, 2021, 12:41:23 PM »
It occurred to me that Squaxx who are now facing an axe-wielding-barbarian-shaped hole in their comic reading might want to ask their favoured purveyor of funny books to procure them a copy of Vault's Barbaric #1 — a 3-issue mini-series which might scratch that particular fantasy itch.

You can find a preview of #1 here.

General / The Unofficial 2000AD Sketch Competition #3: VOTING THREAD!
« on: 18 April, 2021, 09:03:20 AM »
With apologies for the unseemly delay getting here, it’s finally time for the Unofficial Forum Sketch Comp #3 voting thread!

Voting will be open for one week — the thread will close to votes end-of-day Sunday 25th of April after which we’ll announce the winner, and hopefully kick off competition #4 in early May.

Don't forget there are TWO GLITTERING PRIZES for the winner. In addition to choosing the theme for competition #4, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Tower of Comps, plus a signed Nick Percival Dredd print, courtesy of the generous Colin YNWA!

Please clearly rank your selections first, second, third and, in if you’re choosing one of multiple entries by the same person, please make it clear which one you’re voting for. You can also single out entries out for an honourable mention, which I’ll use for tie-break purposes.

Everyone’s done fantastic work again this month, and I have no idea how anyone is going to make selections out of this bumper crop of brilliant work, but here they all are…

General / 2000AD Forum Sketch Competition #3: ENTRIES THREAD
« on: 02 April, 2021, 11:17:32 AM »
And what rough comp, its hour come round at last, slouches toward the forum to be born…?

Why, it's the third monthly sketch comp! This time out, it's SIDEKICKS

Last month's winner, Dark Jimbo explains:

Quote
Sidekicks! They're the last word in loyalty, but they don't always get as much of the limelight as they deserve. From Wulf and the Gronk to Walter and Maria; from Ro-Jaws to Ukko, Purity Brown to Venus Bluegenes; to Dredd's whole supporting cast of Judges and Dante's Romanov siblings, there should be plenty to choose from! Approach the brief however you want, but let's give a little love to the B-teams!

You've had a week to get your thinking caps on, now you have one week to get your sketches in. The competition will close to entries end-of-day Friday April 9th.

You can render your entries in the medium of your choice, and you can enter as many times as you want, but please don't spend more than 45 minutes on each sketch.*

There will be a GLITTERING PRIZE for the winning entry. As well as getting to choose the theme for Sketch Comp #4, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Mountain of Comps™, and a signed Nick Percival print of Ol’ Stoney Face hisself thanks to the generosity of Colin YNWA.

Get sketching, folks!

*Abandoned attempts don't count, so you can take as many stabs at getting an idea right as you need, and no one is standing over you with a stopwatch, but the 45 minutes starts when pencil/pen/crayons/fingers hit paper on the version you want to submit.

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR SKETCHES TO THIS THREAD

With Competition #2 out of the way, we roll on inexorably to the next challenge! This time it’s been selected by the victorious Dark Jimbo.

Thus spake Dark Jimbo:

You have one week to put your thinking caps on, get scribbling if inspiration strikes, but please don't post your entries to this thread.

You can render your entries in the medium of your choice, but please don't spend more than 45 minutes on each sketch.

The thread for posting your masterpieces will be along next Friday, and will stay open for one week (or thereabouts), after which we'll move on to the voting.

There will be not one, but TWO GLITTERING PRIZES for the triumphant Squaxx in this comp. As well as getting to choose the theme for Sketch Comp #4, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Mountain of Comps™ plus a signed Nick Percival print of Ol’ Stoney Face hisself thanks to the generosity of Colin YNWA.

Time to get pondering, and to warm up those pencils/fingers/crayons/styluses!

Right, then. It’s what you’ve all been awaiting with bated breath — the Unofficial 2000AD Forum Sketch Comp #2 RESULTS!

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to vote, and all the participants for their fantastic entries. In a very real sense, you’re all winners… except that we have to have some actual winners, and here they are:

With barely the width of a gnat’s chuff between third and second place, the bronze goes to…

Tomwe #2



In second place…

Jim_Campbell #1



And the runaway winner…

Dark Jimbo!





Congrats to Jimbo, on his well-deserved win, polling more points and votes than the #2 entry by a ratio of 3:2.

And that’s Sketch Comp #2 wrapped. The theme for Comp #3 will be along in due course, and we’ll kick off the next comp properly in early April.

Choose between either: 1) a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Tower of Comps™ or 2) the original art for either my Chopper or Slaine entries. (There’s a fairly major cock-up that I erased digitally, within the time limit, on my first, so you can’t have that one!)

It's time! Show us your arts, fellow Squaxx!

The theme this month is REGENED.

As last month's winner, Colin YNWA explains:

Quote
Regened - its been all the buzz of 2000ad social media. We love it. We hate it. Now we create it. Regene your favourite character by reimagining them as they would be created in a new all ages comic. Regene your favourite cover, regene ... something completely new that would fit into the Regene issues... which isn't regening is it, its just gening... but you get the idea. Do something, do anything, that would look in place in the current regened issues.

Remember, you don't have to just do a younger version of an existing character — you can come up with something entirely new, or an all-ages/YA spin on your favourite strip. Manga Nemesis? Hookjaw in the style of Bone? Durham Red as a Powerpuff Girl?

You've had a week to get your thinking caps on, now you have one week to get your sketches in.

You can render your entries in the medium of your choice, and you can enter as many times as you want, but please don't spend more than 45 minutes on each sketch.*

There will be a GLITTERING PRIZE for the winning entry. As well as getting to choose the theme for Sketch Comp #3, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel from my Terrifyingly Tall Mountain of Comps™.

Have at it, folks!

*Abandoned attempts don't count, so you can take as many stabs at getting an idea right as you need, and no one is standing over you with a stopwatch, but the 45 minutes starts when pencil/pen/crayons/fingers hit paper on the version you want to submit.

Well, folks, with the inaugural sketch comp wrapped up, it's time to move on to the next challenge, selected by our worthy winner, Colin YNWA.

Once again, there will be a GLITTERING PRIZE for the winning entry. As well as getting to choose the theme for Sketch Comp #3, the winner will receive a randomly selected graphic novel* from my Terrifyingly Tall Mountain of Comps™.

*Only random in as much as I need to be able to extract it fom the TTMoC™ without triggering a life-threatening landslide of comics, and the book will either be Vol 1, or a standalone, so you won't have to buy preceding volumes before you can enjoy your prize.

In third place…

Legendary Shark



In second place…

Me



And THE WINNER!

Colin YNWA



The theme for our second sketch competition will be along in due course, so warm those pencils/biros/oh-so-tasty wax crayons up and get ready…

Happy 44th birthday, 2000AD!

Actually, the precise day/date is a slightly confused issue because the date on Prog #1 was the off-sale date, and the prog’s early tag line — “in orbit every every Monday — has literally never been true…!
