Ooh, it’s November… and David Broughton has dropped us a line to remind us it’s time to sign up for the annual 2000AD Messageboard Advent Calendar!

Every year, these have been absolutely magical fun at the expense of 2000AD‘s heroes and villains, providing a real treat every day for fans in the run up to Christmas, so sign up now to show your interest

Here’s how it works. Folks sign up and promise to produce something on a given day as a little prezzie to the board. It can be a picture, a song, a short story, little film, photos, anything you like. There can, and hopefully will, be multiple people submitting per day.

Like last year, everyone is invited to submit stuff on Christmas Eve and the organisers will try and get a few pro’s to do something too. Head over to this thread to sign up!
