Sam Slade is back! And he’s doing a little shopping. A missing droids case leads the veteran robo-hunter and his companions – dimwit droid Hoagy and robo-cigar Stogie – into the depths of a nightmarish furniture emporium, where death comes flatpacked and escape is out of stock.
Based on the fan-favourite 2000 AD character created by John Wagner (Judge Dredd), Alan Grant (Batman) and Ian Gibson (Halo Jones), Robo-Hunter: The Bödj Job is a one-shot strip appearing in the 2000 AD Summer Special, with art by Mark Simmons, published Summer (well, duh!) 2014.
Hot on the heels of our announcing Dylan Teague and Henry Flint recently (as well as droids Goddard, Worley, Davis-Hunt, and Willsher a while back), we have one final 2000AD name for you:-
We’ve not seen Mr MacNeil down this end of the UK for quite some time, so I’m ever so slightly over-excited about it.
If you’ve not got your tickets yet, head to the Bristol Expo website.
As the show gets closer, i’ll be posting information on the panel programme…but it’s safe to say already that there’s definately a 2000AD one in the bag :D
Nice touch with the space needle. Don’t have to tell you its awesome… it’s Jock.

Another guest at the Bristol Comic Expo taking place on 10-11th of May we’ve been given the nod to announce…. Henry Flint!
Not totally sure on details yet but imagine he’ll be on the 2000AD panel as well as doing sketching at some point.
This in addition to those already listed HERE
We’ve been given the nod to announce that 2000AD artist Dylan Teague has been confirmed as a guest at this years Bristol Comic Expo taking place on 10-11th of May.
He’ll also be sketching so my recommendation… get in the queue early.
Other 2000AD guests already announced include Ben Willsher, Jon Davis-Hunt, Alec Worley and Patrick Goddard. I’ve got two more names I’ve been given permission to share so check back tomorrow for the first of those.
I haven’t yet been told I can announce any 2000AD panels but as Iz and The Whittle from the Megacast are both going and Iz is organising the con panel schedule this year….. well, you can probably do the math.
Hey folks, remember when I quit my job to live in a van for four months while I toured around the country and visited Flint? You may also remember how I wrote and drew a webcomic called Drawn Away: A Cartoonist Tours America, which I updated while I was on the road. Well, my plan was always to publish the comic as a book, and now that day is finally upon us. I’m running a Kickstarter campaign to raise $2,000 to publish a 128-page, 8″ x 10.5″ book collecting the entire series. All the work is done, and all that remains is to do a few minor pre-press things before I send the whole thing to the publisher. There are a bunch of backer rewards, including copies of the book, original art sketches, and other cool items. The money is going exclusively to publication costs, so you’re not covering trip expenses or anything but the comic itself. I had an absolute blast on this trip and making this comic, and this was a real passion project for me that I’m eager to share with everyone. Thanks in advance for any support you can give.
