2000AD Art Exhibition

2000AD and the International London Tattoo Convention are proud to present the finest art of 2000AD.
A unique opportunity to view 2000AD art and meet the finest Illustrators of this cult comic and purchase official 2000AD prints and art books.

2000 AD is Britain's cult sci-fi comic, and has been at the cutting edge of contemporary pop culture since 1977. It's a multi-award winning cocktail of explosive sci-fi and fantasy, infused with a mean streak of irony and wry black humour. Imaginative, hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for over 30 years now.

2000 AD has been a proving ground for the finest young artists of the generation, and many of the biggest names in comics today honed their skills within its pages. It has become synonymous with the very finest in comics art, and has won the Best British Comic award at the UK Comic Art Awards, National Comics Awards and Eagle Awards too many times to list. Over a quarter of a century, 2000 AD has created hundreds of memorable comic book characters.
