A while ago, we reported that 2000 AD would not be part of Free Comic Book Day 2016 due to size and cost issues. Now, Rebellion Publishing has announced it will be part of Free Comic Book Day as a Silver Sponsor.
Ben Smith, head of books and comic books for Rebellion Publishing, said: “We are delighted to have been invited back into 2016’s Free Comic Book Day celebrations. The clamouring from our fans has been amazing and we are very pleased – and, indeed, thrilled – that we can now bring them our huge 48-page bumper comic, with work by creators including Eric Powell, Mike and Laura Allred, Peter Milligan, Carlos Ezquerra, Henry Flint, and Joëlle Jones – and all for free! Free Comic Book Day is a brilliant initiative for readers, publishers, and retailers and we are very happy to be a part of 2016’s event!”
At 48-pages, the 2000 AD FCBD 2016 Edition will feature work by Alec Worley, Mike and Laura Allred, Matt Smith, John Wagner, Alan Grant, Kek W, Barry Island, Hannah Berry, Peter Milligan, Eric Powell, Dani K, John Burns, Rufus Dayglo, Carlos Ezquerra, Henry Flint, Joëlle Jones, and Ron Smith.
