Soome of the biggest artists in comic books got their break at the legendary award-winning 2000AD – and you could be joining them!
The comic’s new art competition – 2000AD Art Stars – launched last week and is inspired by the weekly SF action title’s “Star Scans“, which have been a staple of 2000AD since its earliest days. Tgese are single-image pin-ups of the greatest characters in the galaxy, from Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog to Dan Dare and Rogue Trooper, drawn by some of the best artists in comics from Brian Bolland and Dave Gibbons to Jock and Liam Sharp.
Every four months, publisher Rebellion will be giving artistic Earthlets the chance to submit Star Scan pin-ups based on 2000AD characters – the current one, Judge Dredd – and the winner, chosen by the editorial team, will be published in a future edition of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Plus, they’ll be paid for their art.
Each four months 2000AD will announce a new theme and Earthlets can submit their art direct to the editorial droids. The editor will choose their favourite image for publication.
Plus, a runner up will be chosen by public vote and receive zarjaz 2000AD graphic novels!
This is your chance to follow in the footsteps of some of comics’ greatest artistic talents and, who knows, maybe break into the industry yourself!
