2000AD Free Comic Book Day 2014

2000AD are in the advance stages of putting together their Free Comic Book Day title for 2014 – a 48 page Free Comic Book Day edition with a cover by Henry Flint.

The line up includes work from writers John Wagner, Alan Grant, Pat Mills, 2000AD editor Matt Smith (all right, 2000AD‘s human editor!), Gordon Rennie, Leah Moore & John Reppion and artists Chris Burnham, Tieren Trevallion, legendary Star Wars artist Jan Duursema and the equally legendary Judge Dredd artist Ron Smith.

“This isn’t really anything to do with the series we’re writing for Tharg at the moment,” say John and Leah of their story. “It’s a different, fun little one-off.”

• Free Comic Book Day is the 3rd May 2014.
