Coming to a comic shop near you this Wedsnesday, June 20th, the 2000AD Sci-Fi Special!

This will be the very first time in the history of 2000AD that the entire creative team, writers, artists, colourists, letterers… are all female creators. Shocking really to think it’s taken so long, but also good for the future of the comic to see things changing. When it was announced earlier this year, we had the inevitable backlash from certain corners of the Internet and the comics community. But, this is definitely a step forward, it’s not just the PR move that some cynics have accused it of being, and we can guarantee that the line up of amazing talent involved certainly see this as a major moment in the long history of 2000AD.
