2000ad's 40th Anniversary event, 11th February 2017

2017 is a big year for 2000 AD, the Galaxy's Greatest Comic book.

Not only does "Galaxy's Greatest Comic" celebrate its 40th anniversary, but it'll do so with a special one-day live event being held in London next February which I will be attending and sketching at, I'll also have a special exclusive print on sale!

The comic helped creators such as Alan Moore, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons and Grant Morrison find fame, and guests at the live event will include those from the long history of the title, including Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, as well as Watchmen artist Gibbons, Suicide Squad writer Rob Williams, Slaine artist Simon Bisley and Criminal and Kill Or Be Killed's Sean Phillips. Alongside signings, programming at the day-long show will also include what publisher Rebellion is calling "one-of-a-kind spectacles befitting the legacy of the finest comic book export the U.K. has ever produced."

"2000 AD is the crown jewel of British comics," 2000 AD editor Matt Smith said in a statement. "February’s festival will be an explosive celebration – not only of the achievements of the creators for the past forty years, but also a chance to thank the fans for their continued loyalty across the decades."

The event, titled 2000 AD: 40 Years of Thrill Power, will take place at the Novotel London West on Feb. 11!  (It's sold out already!)

See you there!

2000ad Original art exhibition.... at the seaside!!!

This Feb. 17-19th 2017 as part of Geek Festival 2017 I have helped organise an exhibition of original 2000ad artwork to help us celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

Come along to Dreamland in scenic Margate and check out rare and previously unseen original art from 2000ad.

Poster art was drawn by the fabulous Mick McMahon, based on a layout by myself back in 2000...and I recently recoloured it from a photocopy (the original art being in storage somewhere, and the original colour art file lost to history!!)
