Every month, fans of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic have the chance to win a 2000AD graphic novel by entering a themed art competition inspired by the long-running SF weekly. The theme for February 2017 is, unsurprisingly, “Celebrating 40 Years of Thrills!

(The stunning competition art above is by Andy Lambert, a previous winner of this monthly challenge).

As well as being able to enter, 2000AD fans can also vote for your favourite entries, and there’s also a special “2000AD Droid’s Choice” chosen by a creator from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and a prize for “Tharg’s Choice” picked by The Mighty One himself!

The rules of the competition are simple: you can enter as many times as you like but bear in mind doing so may split your vote; and all entries have to be constructed specifically for this competition.

• The deadline for entries for this celebratory competition is 12 midnight GMT, Sunday 26th February 2017. Enter on the forum here or by posting on the 2000AD Facebook wall here
