Does 2000 AD ever accept submissions for Future Shock stories that come from authors that live outside of Great Britain?

When you say accept, do you mean take in submissions, or the implication of them actually publishing them?

Well, if they take in the submissions, then it's probably just a matter of the story's quality that determines wether or not the publish it. So, both, I guess.

Yeah, as far as I know they take all submissions from anywhere.

http://www.2000adonline.com/submissions

There's nothing said about restrictions as far as region goes that I saw. Though, on the second part, I'm not really all that aware of many, if any, of the major American stars get started there...I think it mostly ends up being British

I don't really know of any American mags like it, outside maybe Heavy Metal, but I'm not sure if they take unsolicited submissions or not.

I've only been reading trades here and there for the past year (newbie to comics I suppose), but lately I've caught all up with a couple series and was wondering if anyone can suggest any good web sites to buy comics online with? Possibly looking for some that offer subscription services as well, but not if they take forever to send them. I found like 1 comic shop near me and when I took a drive out there the other day, they were randomly closed during business hours so the online thing might be my only bet.

HeavyInk has a fantastic subscription service that I've recently started using. I have a local shop but they're in somewhat dire financial straits, so they never order indie comics unless you specifically ask like weeks in advance. So I finally gave up and just started setting up subscriptions with HeavyInk for any series that look interesting but are too off-the-beaten-path for my shop to risk ordering.

It's worked out swimmingly so far. They have about a 20% discount on most of the prices for their new comics. Shipping can be a bit pricey--$2.99 for 1 issue, $1.99 for 2 issues, and $0.99 for 3 issues and up--but you can set up your shipments so they'll wait until you have at least 3 comics before they ship, allowing you to get the lowest shipping charge. That plus their discount works out so you're essentially getting new comics for cover price.

I'll have to try one of those then. I finally caught a time when the comic shop near me was open and found they don't really keep up on any new issues. I was looking for the latest Walking Dead and Buffy season 8 too. They were like 3 or 4 months behind. I'm no comic expert by any means, but I would think those are rather popular series.

Yeah, that's pretty bad. There's a shop like that where I live, but I hear it's owned by some rich lawyer guy who just keeps it as a hobby, opens it whenever he wants, and sits around playing the banjo inside. Weird dude.

I'd go to that shop. Not to buy anything probably, but I would

I went once. It was weird. He had no shoes that time, either. But I go to comic shops to buy new comics, so I never went back.

I know there are a lot of popular writers working in the US that came from other countries, but Mark Millar and Grant Morrison are the only 2 I can think of.

Are there any other popular writers that aren't born and bred in the USA?

They are out, and I believe the first trades are due out pretty soon. I'm mainly tradewaiting them, was probably going to check out Solider Zero and The Traveler

Alan Moore, Peter Milligan, Paul Cornell, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Neil Gaiman come to mind.

Have their been any new super heroes introduced to Marvel/DC in awhile? Aside from the new Lanterns that have appeared, I can't really think of any.

This might sound really dumb but its been bothering me. How are some heros like Wolverine for example in various series at once and do the events of one effect the other I mean I know they intertwine some times. But it still bothers me lol im kinda embbarrassed to even ask this makes me sound really noobie like.

Wolverine's in 100 books at once because hes popular, plain and simple. and it all depends if one writer wants to use or reference events that happen in one book for another. its easiest not to think of these stories as some kind of record of their life, just a series of adventures that could be placed chronologically when necessary to tell a story.

Nothing is happening at the same time.

The average Story arc takes place over the course of anywhere from a couple of hours to a couple of days. Sure, it takes six to eight months to tell the story real time, but by the end of the actual story, it's probably less than a day has past.

With Quin Jets that can get people to the other side of the planet in 20 minutes, teleporters, speedsters, etc, the ability to get around in comics is much easier. So a guy like Wolverine can be on 10 or 11 teams, and have time for solo adventures and randomly teaming up with random people, cuz he can be anywhere, and at the end of the day, he probably only spent an hour or two out of his day there anyway.

And yes, it's all in continuity. He even comments on how busy he is all the time.
