I thought his jacket was one of those shiny, poofy winter ones, but it isn’t. I like it. nomnom.
A huge opportunity for wannabe droids:
For 35 years, Earthlets have hammered on the doors of the Nerve Centre, ever-hopeful of being chosen by Tharg the Mighty for the honour of drawing for 2000 AD. Most are chased off by Mek-Quake, but the occasional one is allowed through to test themselves against the best the comic book industry has to offer.
Now 2000 AD and the Thought Bubble convention have a very special competition. Once again, top-name art-droids from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic will be judging a portfolio session at the Leeds event in November.
But this year, the prize is truly Zarjaz – the winner of the portfolio session will get receive the chance to illustrate a Future Shock for publication in 2000 AD!
Join the ranks the biggest names in British comic book – Dave Gibbons, Jock, Ron Smith, Carlos Ezquerra, Colin MacNeil, Mick McMahon, Brian Bolland - by getting a paid strip from Tharg the Mighty!
Budding artists should view the rules and free sample script on the Thought Bubble website, draw their own version of the script, and bring their efforts to the portfolio sessions being held at the 2000 AD table* at the Thought Bubble Comic Con on Saturday 17 November. The six best efforts chosen by Tharg himself will then go before the searing eyes of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, with the winner being accorded the privilege of becoming a paid comic book artist for 2000 AD!
Please note: you’ll need a valid Thought Bubble Comic Con ticket to enter this competition which can be bought here. Winners will be shown at a special 2000 AD panel at the Thought Bubble Comic Con on Sunday 18 November.
* Saturday portfolio sessions will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis – the competition is open only to pages based on the script provided.
“Break the law and he’ll break you!” Haha

Karl Urban talking about Judge Dredd
A lot of times we talk to creators about their upcoming projects but it’s not often that we get to talk to a creator that one of us looks up to however for Simon that would soon change. We were lucky enough to get the chance to talk to JOCK. that’s right the one name artist whose work is most recognizable on such books as Detective Comics, 2000 AD,Hellblazer,The Losers and more.
They discuss the production design of the upcoming Dredd 3D film and what it
was like doing a special limited-edition Batman The Dark Knight Rises
poster for Comic Con.
Simon also talks about what was supposed to have been the 2014 version
of Dune. All this and find out a little bit about Jock’s graphic design style and
what Marvel project you can see him on very soon as our coverage continues of San Diego Comic Con 2012
