TB Digital Comic Con 2020: 2000AD Script Talent Search
by Olly MacNamee
I always enjoy the 2000 AD Script Talent Searches where would-be comic book writers take to the stage to pitch their idea for a Future Shock strip to a panel of judges. Manic, fun and frantic, it’s a great place to listen in a pick up tips too. Hence, sharing it with you here today.
Featuring Michael Molcher, Ian Edginton (Stickleback) Rory McConville (Judge Dredd), and Maura McHugh (Anderson, Psi Division).
“Two minutes, one goal – a Future Shock in 2000 AD! The 2000 AD writer talent search at Thought Bubble is back and not even the pandemic can stop us finding the next scripting star for the legendary British comic! Writers looking to follow in the footsteps of giants such as Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Mark Millar have been sending in two-minute videos of their Future Shock pitches – join creators including Ian Edginton (Hinterkind), Rory McConville (Judge Dredd), and Maura McHugh (Anderson, Psi Division) as they watch and judge who should then get the chance to turn that into a strip for 2000 AD!”
Tomorrow sees the turn of budding art droid to take their chances in the 2000 AD Art Talent Search which starts at 2pm (GMT).
