2000AD Will Publish An All Female Creators Summer Special This June

by Oliver MacNamee

Including creators such as Tillie Walden, Tula Lotay, and Alex De Campi, 2000AD will be producing a one-shot summer special with many of the creators working on 2000AD and its rich stable of characters for the very first time. Iconic characters such as Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Psi-Judge Anderson and DeMarco, P.I. will take to the comics stage, all presented by female writers and artists.

The Summer Special will be available June 20th, 2018 and we’ll let you know more when we hear more. But, given the Old Boys’ Network that launched the comic over 40 years ago now, this is a step in the right direction to addressing the lack of representation and prominence for female creators in comics, especially in sci-fi comics.

Here’s hoping this will be the start of something bigger moving forward. Knowing the people at 2000AD, I suspect it may very well be.

The 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special is out on June 20th, 2018 from Rebellion.
