Moore & Reppion 2000AD signing at Manchester Travelling Man, Sat 25th February

2000 AD is to celebrate its birthday weekend in style with signings across the country!

With the massive success of the sold-out 40 Years of Thrill-power Festival in London last weekend and with its actual birthday of 26 February fast approaching, 2000 AD is delighted to announce new signing events in Manchester, Birmingham, and Scotland.

Earthlets who missed out on the historic event in Hammersmith will be able to meet just some of the incredible creators who’ve made 2000 AD the galaxy’s greatest comic.

The perfect tome to launch these celebrations is Thrill-power Overload, a whopping 300+ page hardcover containing the updated official history of 2000 AD, from its earliest days to its current success, from creator clashes to near-cancellation.

On Saturday 18 February, Biggar Library and Scottish independent Bookshop of the Year Atkinson-Pryce will host a Thrill-power Overload signing with artist Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd: America) and former 2000 AD editor David Bishop from 1pm.

Then on Friday 24 February, Waterstones West End in Edinburgh will host Thrill-power Overload authors David Bishop and Karl Stock for a signing at 12.30pm.

At 1pm on Saturday 25 February, signings will take place at the Travelling Man comic book store in Manchester and the Nostalgia and Comics store Birmingham with topflight creators Steve Yeowell (Zenith), Leah Moore (Storm Warning), John Reppion (Storm Warning), Nick Percival (Judge Dredd), Ian Edginton (Scarlet Traces), D’Israeli (Scarlet Traces).

This year the legendary weekly British anthology comic 2000 AD celebrates forty years of innovative, provocative, and original sci-fi, fantasy, and horror action from the cream of comics creators. It has brought the industry some of its biggest talents, from Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Mark Millar, to Jock, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, and many more. Published in print and digital every Wednesday, 2000 AD is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and remains at the industry’s cutting edge.

Black Shuck parts nine and ten in 2000 AD progs 1991 and 1992

2k 1991 2k 1992It’s the school Summer Holidays. That’s my excuse for leaving it this long to post about the climactic parts of Black Shuck series two going on sale. There has been a lot going on.

If you’re a regular reader of 2000 AD, or you picked up these ten issues just for our series, then we really hope you enjoyed the second arc of our Dunwich born, half Viking, were-beast, arse-kicking warrior king’s adventures.

If you haven’t picked them up yet and think that sounds like fun then head over to shop.2000adonline.com and grab the back issues (either digitally, or in printed form).

32I’ve really left it too late to post a script and some pages to be honest, but I can share the wonderful covers uncovered post for Alex Ronald’s fantastic cover for 1992.

Thanks to by Steve Yeowell for all his awesome work on the series, and to Chris Blythe, and Ellie De Ville.

Final two tracks on the Black Shuck 2 soundtrack:

Track 9: Howl Movements I-III by Lazer/Wulf

Track 10: Blood and Thunder by Mastodon

A week late again. This time due to busy times and a scanner that refuses to work. Apologies.

Firstly, Scarlet Traces is back in this Prog! Edginton and D’Israeli’s post War of the Worlds Universe hits the 1960s, and I for one am very excited about it.

I missed a week.

Or, more accurately, we lost a week because of all the truly dreadful, horrible, stuff that’s going on in the UK right now.

Dredd’s 21st century dystopia is starting to look like a nicer place to live than our own, but enough of that.
