"2000 AD and top talent migrate north for Thought Bubble this weekend"
This weekend, the 2000 AD droids are heading north to Leeds for the annual Thought Bubble comic book convention!

Taking place at the Saviles Hall conference venue at Clarence Dock in Leeds, right next to the Royal Armouries museum, on 19th and 20th November, this year’s event will take place over two for the first time. Go to http://thoughtbubblefestival.com/ for more details. 2000 AD will be there with a cornucopia of comics class and tables piled high with the greatest and the latest titles from more than three decades of Thrill-power!

And befitting the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic we will have a constellation of top comics talent signing and sketching at our dedicated signing table – what other publication could boast of such glittering as Boo Cook (Elephantmen), Simon Davis (Ampney Crucis), Peter Doherty (Devlin Waugh, Shaolin Cowboy), Al Ewing (Zombo, Judge Dredd), Jock (Detective Comics, The Losers), Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd, Chopper), Rob Williams (The Iron Age, Cla$$war) and Andy Diggle (Daredevil, The Losers)?!

For the first time we’re also holding 2000 AD portfolio sessions, but with a Dragon’s Den-style twist! Want to be the next great artist to draw Judge Dredd? Then take this opportunity to have your art seen by one of the world’s best know publishers by entering the 2000 AD portfolio challenge!

Budding artists should view the free sample script on this page: http://thoughtbubblefestival.com/events/2000ad-portfolio-competition/ draw their own version of it, and bring their efforts to the portfolio sessions being held at the 2000 AD table on. The six best efforts chosen by Tharg himself will then go before the searing eyes of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic at a special 2000 AD panel on Sunday at 3pm – artistic judges will include Colin MacNeil, Boo Cook, Peter Doherty and more!
