2000AD Covers Uncovered - Tonight we're gonna party like it's 2000!

The making of Glenn Fabry and Ryan Brown's Preview Exclusive Prog 2000 cover

7 months ago

Paaaaaaaarty! A (very) rare moment of joviality in the Nerve Centre as Tharg allows his characters a break from destruction and mayhem to celebrate the momentous Prog 2000!

This Previews Exclusive cover was brought to you by the cover-miester himself, Mr Glenn Fabry and coloured by the brilliant Ryan Brown. Below we see Glenn's rough sketch, eagle eyed readers will spot a cameo from Rhubarb, of Rhubarb and Custard fame...

"SURPRISE! Ooops, sorry Death!"

With the layout approved, Glenn gets to work on his trademark, meticulous pencils. Not Glenn's notes around the border for the more obscure characters...

Tharg: The Kissogram Years...

With the beautiful pencils finished, it was over to art supremo Ryan Brown to colour. He said "It was really was fun to work on, though its hard working on other peoples pencil work as you need understand where all the light sources are coming from." Below is a work in progress with many of the flats done...

Death takes a sssssssselfie!

Ryan continues "I really enjoyed coming up with all the textures, it's just a pity I didn't have more time to work on it!" Modest as ever with a truly Zarjaz cover worthy of such a momentous prog.

Poor Gronk never got over the shock...

Huuuuge thanks to Ryan for the images (check his website at http://ryanbrown-art.com/) and a hearty Congratulations to Tharg and the gang for 2000 Progs of Pure Thrillpower. Here's to 2000 more!
