The 77 - Anthology Teaser Image

Coming Soon: The 77

The 77 - Anthology Teaser Image A new independent comics anthology is in the works from a team of disparate comic creators united by their admiration for one comic – 2000AD.

20 creators are busy with collaborations for The 77, edited by Ben K Sy, and a crowdfunding campaign is being carefully put together.

The exact nature of the project is, for now, shrouded in mystery, but discussion online suggests an impressive roster of talent is involved.

“I’m excited that almost everything is in place for our new publication,” Ben teased earlier this week on social media. “I hope you’re intrigued, and as soon as I can I will put out teasers as well as loads more information.”
