downthetubes is undergoing some main site refurbishment...

Saturday, 7th October 2017

The downthetubes news blog was assimilated into our main site back in 2013, but we're glad you're here, because that's currently undergoing some under the bonnet refurb! So we've brought this blog back from the dead to tide us over.

We expect to be back up and running next week, just before the 2017 Lakes International Comic Art Festival - see you there?

Hop over to www.downthetubes.net for other British comics news, comic creating guides, interviews and much more!

Happy Birthday, 2000AD! From art droid Dave Taylor

Judge Dredd by Dave Taylor
Judge Dredd by Dave Taylor

Name: Dave Taylor

Blog or web site: http://davetaylorart.blogspot.com

Currently working onBatman: Death by Design, written by Chip Kidd. Published in June.

First memory of 2000AD

A deep rumbling, as if a powerful force within had been awoken.

Favourite Character or Story

Dredd, The Cursed Earth. This was so inspiring for a young lad!

What do you like most about the 2000AD

The freedom of expression. The freedom to experiment. Oh, the endless possibilities!

What would you most like to see in 2000AD as it heads to its Forties? 

A continuing flow of innovative story telling and imagination. A free gift every so often wouldn't hurt!!

If you worked on 2000AD, do you have an anecdote you'd like to share about your experience of Tharg and his minions? 

Tharg is seen as quite a formidable creature, a brute of cosmic proportions, but let me tell you that he's actually a very enlightened and compassionate fellow. He rescued me from the gutter, literally gave me a home, a pencil and a desk on which to work. He can make your dreams come true, but only if you believe in him.

• This post is one in a series of tributes to 2000AD to mark its 35th birthday on 26th February 2012. More about 2000AD at www.2000adonline.com
