I found a package containing three unordered copies of 2000AD Prog 2023 on my door mat this morning, which can mean only one thing: my first script has been published.
It’s the script I wrote after winning the 2000AD Writing Competion at Thought Bubble last year - the thing I entered for a laugh having never even considered writing comics. The artist, Tilen Javornik, who won the 2000AD Art Competition, has done a brilliant job. He must be psychic: he has taken the images directly from my brain and put them on to paper perfectly (the script wasn’t THAT detailed).
I’m extra pleased because Prog 2023 is a jumping on point, where all the serialised stories are starting their part 1s, so there’s often a few extra sales.
If anyone here reads 2000AD, or if you haven’t tried 2000AD before, Prog 2013 (out Wednesday 22 Mar) is a good place to start, I’d be happy to hear comments on my story. And if you really like it, you could always write a complimentary note to Tharg
