2000 AD is to celebrate its birthday weekend in style with signings across the country!
With the massive success of the sold-out 40 Years of Thrill-power Festival in London last weekend and with its actual birthday of 26 February fast approaching, 2000 AD is delighted to announce new signing events in Manchester, Birmingham, and Scotland.
Earthlets who missed out on the historic event in Hammersmith will be able to meet just some of the incredible creators who’ve made 2000 AD the galaxy’s greatest comic.
The perfect tome to launch these celebrations is Thrill-power Overload, a whopping 300+ page hardcover containing the updated official history of 2000 AD, from its earliest days to its current success, from creator clashes to near-cancellation.
On Saturday 18 February, Biggar Library and Scottish independent Bookshop of the Year Atkinson-Pryce will host a Thrill-power Overload signing with artist Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd: America) and former 2000 AD editor David Bishop from 1pm.
Then on Friday 24 February, Waterstones West End in Edinburgh will host Thrill-power Overload authors David Bishop and Karl Stock for a signing at 12.30pm.
At 1pm on Saturday 25 February, signings will take place at the Travelling Man comic book store in Manchester and the Nostalgia and Comics store Birmingham with topflight creators Steve Yeowell (Zenith), Leah Moore (Storm Warning), John Reppion (Storm Warning), Nick Percival (Judge Dredd), Ian Edginton (Scarlet Traces), D’Israeli (Scarlet Traces).
This year the legendary weekly British anthology comic 2000 AD celebrates forty years of innovative, provocative, and original sci-fi, fantasy, and horror action from the cream of comics creators. It has brought the industry some of its biggest talents, from Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, and Mark Millar, to Jock, Brian Bolland, Dave Gibbons, and many more. Published in print and digital every Wednesday, 2000 AD is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic and remains at the industry’s cutting edge.

There is no pre-booking for the Waterstones’ events – just come along and join the queue. For Foyles, you may register for a Priority Queue ticket, which will also enter you into a draw for some fun prizes. Visit the Foyles site for details of their event and how to register for the competition:
As well as Conjuror, you may also bring John and Carole’s other books for signing at these events. They will not sign other items, such as DVDs, CDs or action figures. You may take photos while in the queue but please do not ask John and Carole to pose for photos with you as time at the events is limited, and this would mean that some fans would not be able to have their books signed.
Seventeen-year-old Rémy Dupree Rush is the last of his kind. He’s a Conjuror, a descendant of an ancient African bloodline that can change reality with music. Seventeen-year-old twins, Matt and Em Calder, are the most powerful of their kind. They are Animare, descendants of an ancient order of artists whose imaginations can bring art to life and travel through paintings. Malevolent forces that only a Conjuror can stop are rising in the world. Rémy must enlist the Calder twins’ help to battle them.
Reaching back to the Spanish Inquisition and the Atlantic slave trade, this supernatural thriller sprints from the streets of Chicago across the rooftops of central London to the art galleries of Glasgow and the highlands of Scotland, ending in a mind-blowing clash in southern Spain where (with help from the artist, Caravaggio) Rémy, Matt and Em confront an evil conceived in chaos at the beginning of time.
Conjuror will be published in the UK by Head of Zeus on 5 May and is now available for pre-order from Waterstones, Amazon and other booksellers.
