"2000ADonline.com teams up with the 2000 AD Covers Uncovered blog!"
It’s been setting the newsstands ablaze with pulse-pounding covers for 36 years and now 2000 AD is teaming up with one of its biggest fans to bring you the Galaxy’s Greatest Covers!

Pete Wells of 2000 AD Covers Uncovered and 2000ADonline.com are coming together to give you exclusive access to the process behind the covers of 2000 AD, from sketches to pencils to inks and finished art!

The blog will be featured every week on 2000 AD’s official website, so that fans can see the work behind the Prog’s latest covers.

Today, blog bids ‘bon voyage’ to Ian Edginton (Victorian Undead) and Steve Yeowell’s (Zenith) mythical pirate epic The Red Seas! The series comes to a close this week in 2000 AD Prog 1823 with a double-length episode and a swashbuckling cover from Yeowell.

As well as a step-by-step look at Yeowell’s cover, the blog gives a rundown of classic Captain Jack Dancer covers of yesteryear, by some of the biggest names in comics!

Long-standing 2000 AD fan Pete said: “I’ve read and loved 2000 AD for years and just set the blog up because it was always the covers that caught my eye every week. To be able to get the artists to reveal the process behind their amazing work has been a real labour of love. I’m really excited that I’m going to be working with 2000 AD to bring the behind-the-scenes sketches, pencils and inks to fans everywhere.”

Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, said: “At 2000 AD our cover artists are some of the biggest names in comics and it’s always been fascinating for me to see the step-by-step process they go through to craft such dynamic and outstanding images. Pete does a great job in talking to the artists and revealing the process from beginning to end.”
