Announcements / New Hachette tests
« on: 27 February, 2017, 06:03:27 pm »
After the huge success of Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection, we're delighted to tip you off you that Hachette Partworks is to trial a new collection bringing together stories from 40 years of 2000 AD.

You may well see or hear about test volumes appear in newsagents in certain parts of the country over the next month. These tests are being done to see if a series would work and, if the test is successful, there'll be a big national launch at a later date - just like there was with the Mega Collection.

This is very exciting for us as the Mega Collection has been hugely positive for 2000 AD and we want that success to continue.

We appreciate every fan's interest in ensuring these tests are successful - WE want them to be successful too, but we also appreciate Hachette's concerns that people rushing into the test areas and bulk buying copies will skew their numbers and could put the viability of a national launch at risk. We and Hachette don't publicise these tests for that very reason.

At the same time, we know you'll want to get your hands on what promise to be rather tasty new hardcover editions. If you’re desperate to get a copy of one of the books and you find yourself NOT in a test area, please send me your name and address through this forum, we’ll see about getting you a sample copy from Hachette (dependant on supplies).

The series website is now live at www.2000adcollection.com if you want to see how the collection might take shape if it does launch nationally.

This is yet more great news for 2000 AD in its 40th anniversary year and we know we can count on your support if the collection gets the go ahead!

Announcements / New vid series: From the Drawing Board
« on: 18 January, 2017, 07:01:23 pm »
For four decades, 2000 AD has been bringing you the galaxy's greatest stories from the world's best creators - its mix of action, humour, satire, and in-your-face storytelling has made it the award-winning, critically-acclaimed, globally-influencing comic it is today.

But what goes into creating your weekly Thrills? How do artists go from script to finished page?

In the first of a brand new vid series, we meet the artists behind 2000 AD and get to watch them in action as they craft brand new Thrills for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

Discover the process behind some of the best art in comics with FROM THE DRAWING BOARD!

In this episode, artist Leigh Gallagher takes us through his creation of the cover to 2000 AD Prog 2015 - out on 25th February - for his series with Ian Edginton, Kingmaker!

General / 'Get well soon' messages to Peter Doherty
« on: 05 December, 2016, 07:51:05 pm »
For those of you who haven't heard, artist Peter Doherty has been very seriously ill in hospital since 23 November. Originally thought to be suffering a heart attack, Peter was diagnosed with a torn aorta and underwent major surgery. After a number of days under sedation he's now awake again but will be in hospital for a while yet.

We're putting together a card for Peter from the droids in the 2000 AD Command Module, but we'd also like to include messages from his fans on the forum.

So if you'd like to send him best wishes or a 'get well soon' message, please leave it on this thread and when we send the card we'll print them off and include them so that Peter can see just how many people are wishing him a speedy recovery.

Cheers,

Molch-R

I'm delighted to announce that our very own Pete Wells is bringing his 2000 AD Covers Uncovered blog to 2000ADonline.com. Each week he'll do what he does so very well - go behind the scenes on the latest 2000 AD and Megazine covers, and regale us with the very worst puns imaginable (which I'm told *very occasionally* make Tharg green(er) with envy!)

Here's his first post, and what a corker http://www.2000adonline.com/post/522

Last year, thanks to our dedicated fans, missing episodes of the long-running Judge Dredd stories from The Daily Star newspaper were unearthed so that they could be included in The Daily Dredds Volume 1, making it the first ever truly complete collection of these fascinating and entertaining strips.

2000 AD's reprographics droids are now busy working on a second volume of The Daily Dredds - and they once again need the help of fans to track down two missing episodes from a later story.

The Sheriff of Festering Hole ran for 57 episodes (numbered from #1373 to #1429) in the Daily Star from 30th July 1990 to 3rd October 1990, written by John Wagner and Alan Grant, with art by Mike Collins.

However, so far they have been unable to find good copies of the episodes numbered #1415 and #1416.

Any Earthlets who have access to either scans or good/excellent physical copies of these two missing episodes should contact 2000 AD by e-mailing press@rebellion.co.uk

The Daily Star strip, which ran for around 2,980 episodes from 1981 until 1998, went further than merely compressing existing stories from the weekly anthology comic - it was responsible for fleshing out many of the aspects of Dredd’s world mentioned in 2000 AD.  It was written by co-creator John Wagner and writing partner Alan Grant, while fan favourite artist Ron Smith produced the vast bulk of the strip, though later contributors included Ian Gibson, Barry Kitson, Steve Dillon, and Mike Collins.

Announcements / No 2000 AD for Free Comic Book Day 2016
« on: 06 November, 2015, 12:29:15 pm »
You may have seen the report today that unfortunately, after several very successful years, 2000 AD has not been chosen to participate in the Free Comic Book Day event in 2016.

We just issued the following statement:

“2000 AD is very proud of the success of our FCBD issue, which saw orders grow in huge jumps every single year, exceeding 60,000 units in 2015. We value FCBD, and the effort Diamond and the retailers put into making the day so successful, for the opportunity to support comic book stores, reach out to new audiences both within and beyond the UK, and to give something extra to readers. As such, we have proudly and routinely commissioned original content from top flight talent for our FCBD issues and increased the page count to a hefty 48 pages.

“It is therefore very disappointing to not be taking part in the 2016 event, particularly since we were so excited about including work by such huge talents as Eric Powell, Joelle Jones, and Laura and Mike Allred.

“We don’t want to keep that from our readers, so we have therefore taken the decision to still bring this amazing work out in May 2016 in a new Summer Special issue, full details of which will be forthcoming.

“Meanwhile we hope readers and retailers who are disappointed not to be able to pick up a 2000 AD FCBD issue next year will give their support to us and the Summer Special. We very much hope to be back in FCBD in 2017 and will be working hard for that to happen.”
