2000AD Forum Art Comp. (Jul’14): Wordless Stories

I couldn’t actually find the complete set of winners from last months art competition, so here’s some of the other brilliant entries, that we felt deserved a mention!

  • The Window' - Beautifully simple-and funny! Great stuff from our very own Owen Watts.
  • Skysurfer - A snapshot of life in Mega-City One, with the unlikely event of a skysurfing perp getting the drop on Dredd - my money’s still on Dredd, though! From Dave Peloe
  • Mongrol’s Pain - The ape-like ABC Warrior mourns his lost love, Lara - by frequent fan artist, Neil McClements
  • Torquemada - The Grandmaster of Termight finally gets his revenge on those pesky robots, the ABC Warriors! Atmospheric art by Alex Mines
  • Dexter’s Hardest Hit - Can Ramone Algonquin Winnebago Dexter really have done the unthinkable and whacked his gun-shark partner & best bud, Finnegan Rapunzel Sinister..? Apparently so, according to Ant O’Donnell!
  • Infiltration - Amazingly atmospheric art as eco-warrior Finn goes to work in this piece by fabulous female fan artist, Pictsy!
  • Democracy Now - Judge Dredd gives his views on the democratic system, and members of anti-judicial party Democracy Now,in particular! Nice work from Oz artist, Allister Mackrell
  • The Reality Of Death - Clever use of ink and (very) still life,as Death seems to reach off the page to continue his life,er death’s work! We assume no insects were harmed in this piece but when the alien superfiend is involved ALL life is a crime…let’s just hope artist, James Newell survived the encounter!

Apologies again for the lateness of July’s entries, but good art is timeless - that’s my rather lame, but true, excuse, anyway - and as ever, our fans & readers have not let us down - great work guys!
