The team at the Thought Bubble Festival have teamed up with  2000AD to host the first official 2000AD convention portfolio session. If you make it through the initial stages you may even end up in front of Tharg himself and a team of 2000AD judges in front of a live audience. Let the pant wetting commence.

Good luck to anyone who steps up for this. I saw something similar done at brum con and it was  interesting, nerve wracking and fascinating to hear some of the ideas being pitched. It was certainly an entertaining watch.

Tharg the Mighty meets Dragons’ Den!

Announcing the first official 2000 AD® convention portfolio session in years –

culminating in a Dragons’ Den-style show off!

2000 AD has teamed up with the annual Thought Bubble convention to create a very special event for budding comic book artists.


Thought Bubble is the UK’s largest annual event which celebrates sequential art in all its forms, including everything from superheroes to independent and small press comics. Thought Bubble 2011 will take place in Leeds with a centre-piece two day convention on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th.

Tharg demands that budding artists prove their worth before he will let them enter the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic – and this special portfolio session is not for the faint-hearted!

To take part in the first Tharg’s Thrill Challenge, artists should view the free sample five-page script – the Terror Tale ‘Patch Pea Podlings’ by Arthur Wyatt – available on the Thought Bubble website, draw their own version of it, and bring their efforts to the Saturday portfolio sessions being held at the 2000 AD stall.

The six best efforts chosen by Tharg himself will then go before a panel on the Sunday, where some of 2000 AD’s top-name talent will pass judgement in front of a live audience!

Only the brave-hearted need apply, earthlets – dare you bring your wares before the searing gaze of Tharg the Mighty?!
