2000AD Forum Art Comp. ‘What If..?' (May'14) - Results!
First of all, apologies to all the talented and committed forum members and fans who produce top quality and imaginative art each month for our judgement and approval - you are awesome, guys! - as I’m a little late in posting the competition results this time: please forgive me, but it’s been a busy month!
However, this doesn’t detract from the high level of output, from an extremely diverse, not to mention intriguing, topic: What If..?
- First place: ‘What If..Nemesis the Warlock was pitched to ‘70-80’s UK girl’s horror comic, Misty!' by James Newell - Wow!, great concept from Earthlet Newell, but perhaps not quite so impossible given the involvement of Nemesis' creator, Pat Mills in the production of this classic horror title..!
- Second place: ‘What If..Owen Chrysler (The Judge Child) had indeed become Chief-Judge, as predicted?’ by Forum member Neil McClements (Archie McC).
- Third place: ‘What If..Slaine was an active member of Geek-hating space marines , The V.C.'s?' From Forum member, SKD.
- Tharg’s Choice: ‘What If..A tiny alien was living underneath Dredd’s helmet?’! by Gary O’Donnell. Nice One Earthlet O’Donnell, an interesting notion, but I’m pretty sure Justice Dept. scanners would have picked up this little critter by now!
Congratulations, albeit belated!, to the winners, and keep up the splendid work to all entrants - so get out your brushes, pens and tablets for this month’s (June) new theme: “Let’s re-draw a single panel from the pages of 2000AD"…sounds intriguing!
Huge thanks as ever, to Owen Watts
