The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic is preparing to spread thrill-power to the world’s biggest comic book convention next week – 2000 AD is headed for San Diego Comic Con 2011!
Tharg the Mighty’s minions – editor Matt Smith, graphic novels editor Keith Richardson and PR co-ordinator Michael Molcher – will be at Booth 2806 with copies of the cosmos-spanning 2000 AD graphic novel range.
There will also be the chance for some lucky earthlets to pick up 2000 AD’s SDCC-only exclusive – a limited edition T-shirt showing the stony face of justice himself, Judge Dredd. The design on the baseball-style shirts is an exclusive image by Jock, concept artist on the forthcoming Dredd movie due for release next year, and the t-shirt is limited to just 100 pieces.
The 2000 AD booth will stock both copies of its US-only range of graphic novels and UK titles currently unavailable in the States.
Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said:
“As the world’s biggest comic convention, it would be remiss of Tharg’s minions to ignore the potential for spreading thrill-power to the masses who attend SDCC.
“With 2012 marking not only 2000 AD’s 35th anniversary but also the release of the eagerly anticipated Dredd movie, along with our US-only graphic novel range and weekly progs being made available through Diamond, there’s never been a better time for American earthlets to get onboard with 2000 AD.”
Giving birth to iconic characters such as Judge Dredd, Halo Jones, Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper, the imaginative blend of hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for more than 30 years – launching the careers of some of the top names in global comics, including Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Grant Morrison, Brian Bolland, Steve Dillon, Jock, and Peter Milligan.
2000 AD, its monthly sister publication The Judge Dredd Megazine, and its extensive range of collected graphic novels are available to buy online, from all major magazine retailers across the UK and Europe and from all good comic stores across the US.
