Update: Free Comic Book Day & 2000AD Special Mega-Signing – Saturday, May 7


Everybody loves free comics, right? Well, this year Orbital is proud to not only be participating in the annual Free Comic Book Day, but also to be hosting a massive 2000AD mega-signing session with a number of the creators featured in their Free Comic Book Day issue.

You heard us! Not only can you get a free copy of 2000AD‘s FCBD Special (and other awesome comics) … you can also get it signed by the creators involved, including Hannah Berry, Peter Milligan, Henry Flint, Alec Worley, Matt ‘Tharg’ Smith, and special guest Dani (who’s flying in from Greece for the day) – with more to be announced over the coming weeks.

Update: We’ve just added Peter Milligan (2000AD, The Discipline) to our mega-guest list for the day.

But wait – that’s not all … On top of free comics and a 2000AD mega-signing, we’ll also have original art from the issue on display in the Orbital Gallery. We have Dani’s complete story (as part of a wider exhibition) plus Rufus Dayglo & Jim McCarthy‘s art from Bad Company!

Doors open at 10:30am for Free Comic Book Day, then the signing will commence at 2pm. This is our biggest and most ambitious FCBD signing EVER, so we hope you’ll join us in celebrating the enduring thrill-power of 2000AD as they blaze ahead in 2016. Zarjaz!
