No virus is going to stop us finding the next generation of 2000 AD creators – the 2000 AD talent search panels return as part of Thought Bubble’s Digital Comic Con this November!

It’s Dragons’ Den meets the Nerve Centre as Tharg the Mighty’s droids sit in judgement on hopeful writers and artists looking to join their ranks. Now all online and all Thrill-powered!

The prize at stake is paid work with the legendary comic book, 2000 AD, where legendary creators such as Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, Jock, Brian Bolland, Frazer Irving, Charlie Adlard, and many more got their big break!

As in previous years, eager artists are being asked to draw their own version of a four-page Future Shock script, while would-be script droids must pitch their idea for a fresh Future Shock in under two minutes!

But this year Thought Bubble has been forced to move online due to Covid-19 restrictions, so rather than judging panels in front of a live audience, selected entries will be presented to two online panels of top 2000 AD talent who will give their judgement and pick two – one artist and one writer – to get paid work at the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!


Get your thinking caps on, follow the instructions, and you could join previous winners such as Rory McConville (Judge Dredd), Laura Bailey (Demarco P.I.), Paul Williams (2000 AD covers), and Robin Henley (Misty & Scream!) in joining the ranks of 2000 AD‘s creator droids!

All entries must be submitted following the guidelines by 9pm GMT on October 18 2020.
