Contract by Simon Spurrier

If you pass by here because of its tenuous links to anything to do with 2000 AD then you're probably aware of that oik Simon Spurrier. He's got a book due out soon so pop by its myspace page and see what its all about, there's also Si's myspace page and I'm sure he's on god knows how many other sites going on about his books impending release. There's even a site where you can read it for free, yes free.
Its being released chapter by chapter each week so you'll be able to read the whole book and not pay a penny, its only going to be available for a limited time so click on the link and see what its all about. I'm presently working my way through the hardback and so far its very good.

Ever felt like owning a piece of raw Thrill Power, to be able to hold a page of art in your hands, feel the paper, see the ink or paint well then Rufus Dayglo's ArtDroids site is the place to drop by.
Rufus, himself has appeared inside the pages of 2000 AD and on the cover and represents some of the biggest names that have worked for the Nerve Centre.
Besides selling artwork for other artists Rufus is presently working on such things as Tank Girl & Metal Gear Solid but if you pop al
ong to his MySpace page you can see his blog and fantastic art.
A word of warning before clicking the link to the ArtDroids site, there's only one way known to stop Rufus selling you that fantastic piece or Carlos Ezquerra artwork. Or work by Henry Flint, Dave Gibbons, Garry Leach, Arthur Ranson, Cliff Robinson, Jock, Ian Gibson & Kevin O’Neil to name just a few.


'Origins', the story 30 years in the making arrives in graphic novel form. From his very first appearance in Prog 2 of 2000 AD through 30 years of stories, John Wagner has never told the story of how the Justice department and Dredd's world was set up but that all changed from Prog 1505 [September, 2006]

If you didn't catch the following epic story in the Progs or just want to have it to read in one go its now out. The book also has the preceding Dredd story 'The Connection' with art by Kev Walker, covers gallery and sketch book by Dredd's co-creator Carlos Ezquerra.

Origins: Buy Now.

2000 AD Review

If you haven't read 2000 AD for ages and don't know what you're missing then here's a site for you. Reviews on all new releases from the House of Tharg including 2000 AD, The Megazine, Extreme Editions, Abaddon Books and more.

Reviews from Prog 1304 way back in August 2002 through to the latest Prog. The Megazine reviews starting with Megazine 201 from January 2003 and host of other related titles reviewed. Collections like the recently released and one of my fave Graphic Novel from the Nerve Centre this year, XTinct. In fact it'd be easier to take a peek than for me to keep listing things and if looking isn't enough it has its own forum where you can discuss anything to do with Tharg, his droids and publications.


PJ Holden the smallest man in comics is currently putting together a comic showcasing some of his work that goes back many a year.
Its provisional line up is taken from PJ's Blog in his own words.

The Tallyman by Gordon Rennie, 1999
This marks the start of my long standing collaboration and friendship with Gordon. First appeared in Violent #1.

Bertie’s Backyard Bomber by Paul Glasswell, March 2004
A goofy cartoony strip in a style that I’ve never used before or since. Drawn for ‘Solar Wind’.

Broken Claw by Stu Taylor, October 2004
First printed in Neo #1 – we had big plans for ‘Broken Claw’ but we ended up doing a year long run of ‘Nanas ‘n’ Custard’ for Toxic! Instead. Relettered for this collection.

The Adventures of Rogue’s Secret Other Biochip Buddy by Gordon Rennie. c2002
Born out of a stupid conversation between Gordon and I, never intended to for print and drawn after Gordon had started Rogue but before I had.

Horror by Kieron Gillen, September 2006
Drawn for a horror anthology, relettered for this collection. Keiron is unnaturally fond of the pigs in this strip. It scares me.

Dark Judge Wedgie by Gordon Rennie, March 2003
Another daft Gordon strip, Dark Judge Wedgie, one imagines, is the Dark Judge that the others try to ignore and don’t tell when they’re going on inter-dimensional jumps.

Stripped Bare by Jaspre Bark, c2004
Written by Jaspre to accompany a series of articles he was doing for a fiction magazine I enjoyed the crammed detail (and now that I look again, it’s not unlike the Bertie strip previously mentioned, hmmmm…)

Face Rot, c2005, and Rebel Strip, February 2006
Origin of Face Rot unknown, the Rebel strip was written and drawn by me as part of a series of webstrips I’d decided to do for my website, wherein I would do a page a day. I lasted for two or three months and drew around 60 strips.

Bulldog: Forgetful Snow by Jason Cobley, March 2003
I’m fond of the delicate inking on this and there are some nice faces. Also, that’s my little brother Luke on the last page.

Strontium Dog: The Day the Dog Died by Kelt, March 2003
Posted to the alt.comics.2000ad by Kelt, this silly one page spoof was too funny not to draw. So I did.

Cages by Nick Brownlow Four page call of chtulu style strip for RPG magazine the Black Seal.

To find out more click on the link to PJ's Blog there's loads to see and damn it he's a nice bloke as well. Paul Holden's: Notes From The Drawing Board.

Tell him Logan sent you.
