2000 AD and Free Comic Book Day
« on: May 10, 2011, 10:37:33 AM »
2000 AD® is supporting Free Comic Book Day for the first time this year with a free 32-page sampler showcasing the best of British. It features work by John Wagner, Pat Mills, Robbie Morrison, Dan Abnett, Clint Langley, Richard Elson, Henry Flint, Al Ewing and US artist Val Semeiks – all wrapped up in a cover by Jock (The Losers).

Top strips include future lawman Judge Dredd, ancient Celtic violence in Sláine, genetically engineered dog soldiers in Kingdom and the first alien-slaughtering episode of Shakara!

It also includes a three-page strip by League of Extraordinary Gentlemen artist Kevin O'Neill, which has not been reprinted since it first appeared in 1977, and a one-page advert for gentleman zombie. Zombo – inspired by the classic Twinkie ads from US comic books! The sampler is the first 2000 AD has produced for Free Comic Book Day, when participating comic book shops across the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores.

Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said: “We're big fans of Free Comic Book Day and it's great that we're able to take part this year. The sampler is a cross section of what 2000 AD and the perfect introduction for anybody who's never picked it up before. There's been a fantastic response from retailers keen to get copies for Free Comic Book Day and hopefully it will not only spread the word about 2000 AD but will also give a boost to comic book shops.”
